The former RC Cola brand started with below-average figures, but thanks to our new rebranding on “southern roots”, the results shot up like a bottle cap on a shaken cola. The response was literally incredible! During our three years of cooperation, the demand in the area of catering/restaurants rose by up to 120% (an 11% market share in 2019) and from 2016 the margin increased by almost five times. In 2019, the share of purchased Royal Crown Cola among the other colas in the hypermarkets increased by an entire third! Last but not least, the increase of awareness of the Royal Crown Cola brand among respondents in the age of 25-40 to up to 51% is also important. These and other success stories confirm that with the proper communication, even an uninteresting product can become a hit. Plus, 77% of those surveyed know that Royal Crown Cola is “that American one”.
All of the achieved results were built on a strong strategy, which was absolutely consistent in all communication channels. The communication concept was developed in the Czech Republic in cooperation with the American headquarters, and thanks to its success, it will be applied in other markets (Belgium, France, Denmark, Romania) in the future. But you know how: nicely and slowly. Our work here was recognised with several awards. The campaign received three ADC Czech Creative Awards in the categories Craft, Film a Online Film and one Golden Effie for Long term brand building.
