KIT KAT Choose a Chunky Champion campaign

Kitkat article

Earlier this year Nestlé Confectionery put consumers in the driving seat with the launch of the new KIT KAT Choose a Chunky Champion campaign.  With consumers growing accustomed to having their say through social media and TV programmes such as The X Factor and Big Brother, the KIT KAT Choose a Chunky Champion campaign came at an ideal time to engage shoppers and bring additional consumers to the chocolate category. 

The promotion included four new Kit Kat Chunky flavours including Double Chocolate, White Chocolate, Peanut Butter and Orange.  Kit Kat Chunky Peanut Butter was the clear winner with 42% of total votes and was crowned the Nation’s Chunky Champion becoming a permanent line in the Kit Kat family.

The promotion was a phenomenal success – it was the biggest Nestlé Confectionery event EVER and was full of firsts including the use of Blippar as mechanism for consumer engagement and live voting on TV.  But that’s not all – Kit Kat was the No.1 talked about confectionery brand online, the promotion increased out of home Chunky shoppers by 75% and delivered a campaign that increased penetration of young consumers by 50%. 

Nestle Professional Vending executed the promotion with UK and Ireland based operators and as part of the total package incentivised operators based on how well they executed the promotion in the market.  The team from Manchester Vending were awarded the UK trophy for excellence in execution for flawless activation of the products in the market.  The award was judged on how well operators brought the promotion to life in the market and how they engaged with consumers.

Matt Lane, Head of Vending commented “Manchester Vending executed Choose a Chunky Champion second to none in the vending industry earlier this year.  Their Broderick’s Sigma Touch machines meant they were well equipped to run the TV commercial, activate the Blippar voting mechanic, and through this could easily direct consumers to the Facebook page to vote. They were truly worthy winners of the trophy”.

Manchester Vending bought into the promotion whole heartedly and selected sites that best fitted the target audience therefore Manchester Airport and university sites were chosen. Each site backed the promotion 100% by offering all four lines and gave the consumer the opportunity to participate. John Broderick, MD from Manchester Vending said “Our new touch screens ran high definition adverts engaging directly with the people purchasing the product. This was a massive step forward from the traditional point of sale previously used in vending.  Our customers loved the promotion!”

The TV commercial ran over 500,000 times in these sites over the promotional period.  The machines at Manchester Airport created awareness as the machines are well situated in areas of high dwell time and placed perfectly to capitalise on consumers seeking distraction with disposable cash. The touch screens enable that retail feel and can really bring new product launches to life.  It also allows brands to customise exactly where their products are shown so that they are always targeting the correct consumers.
Johnny Broderick believes that digital media and screen media is the fastest growing marketing sector as more TV channels and the ability to fast track advertisements and commercials finds brands seeking alternative ways to promote their products.  He says “The beauty of our system enables Manchester Vending to deploy marketing campaigns that trigger an impulsive desire for the product, using screens means consumers know it is available”.

Beckham Loves Broderick's Loves Coffee

Becks Whilst it was an emotional return for David Beckham to Old Trafford, it was just as emotional at Terminal 2 where David was presented with a Broderick's Love Coffee cup by Chris Jones, our employee of the month. “I hope it's not the only cup David holds this Summer,” said Chris. The team at Broderick's cheered their hero wishing him all the best in South Africa. It's a wonder that David could still manage to smile even after a 4-0 bashing.

IMG_3250Cash-strapped and time-pressured workers are shunning trips to high-street coffee shops in the recession, opting instead for office vending machines, according to an article in The Guardian today. Workers are choosing to stay in and have a 50p drink instead of leaving the office for a £2 drink at the big coffee chains.

We at Manchester Vending are committed to providing the finest vending machines available on the market. Contact us to find out how we can help you provide great coffee to your staff.
