The vast majority of U.S. restaurant customers have yet to try at-home delivery, but major TV spots in recent months have helped raise awareness and bring the later-adopters into the fold. The latest is Louisiana-based Waitr, which is launching a fall TV ad campaign in a handful of states that humorously highlight how delivery can ameliorate the chaos of parenting at home, among other high-drama situations.
Created with the ThreeSixtyEight and Fallon agencies, the Waitr and Bite Squad spots are launching this month in Louisiana, Georgia, Florida, Hawaii, South Carolina and Tennessee. The campaign also includes radio and internet ads, beyond the TV spots.
Craig Key, Waitr’s head of growth with a deep marketing background, said the campaign is specifically focused on moms and families that find themselves in the eye of the domestic storm.
“With so many tech brands focusing their advertising toward younger, coastal markets, we saw this campaign as a chance to engage the heart of America: moms and families who are working tirelessly to raise young children,” he added. “Many of our staff, our spouses, and our friends fall into this demographic, so every piece of creative rang true for us. We’re so excited to connect Waitr to the people who want their service most and offer them a night off so that they can spend more time with their families.”
