Score 91 - Review Imminent Update: #264 TGI Fridays launches new Endless Apps campaign


Newman couldn't keep up with all of the uneaten food

Created by The Richards Group, back on board as creative AOR after losing the account in 2015, the new ad campaign includes Fridays' usual national TV heavy media mix. While there's hopefully still new campaign revenue to secure here, I'm mentioning this more because I'm thinking creative could still be in play.

I know - Richards just got it back, what do you mean? First, they were hired before the arrival of new CMO Stephanie Perdue (research here). Second, its not like Fridays was doing much better during Richards' previous tenure (2011-2015). I'm not saying it's Richards fault. Blame the economic collapse for diners unwillingness to overspend on microwaved entrees But it's not like Richards was helping Fridays back the downward casual dining trend then. And consumers' willingness to spend has only gotten worse since then. 

Now, Fridays wants to transform from a Chotchkie's casual dining rival to a suburban gastropub (research here). Sorry, but endless apps isn't going to get them there. The Richards hire feels similar to the Braves signing two 40-year-old pitchers to hold them over until next season. We'll see and I could easily be wrong. I wouldn't be surprised if Bartolo Colon pitched until he's 65 either. 

We've heard that media recently moved to here).

However, ads are still running mostly site direct. The only sites the last year to receive more than $40,000 in support are (Fandom), and
