Jack in the Box Answers the Cravings Call with Local Measurement

The setup

In a crowded QSR market of competitors replicating each other’s successes, Jack in the Box knows who they are, and really lean into it. As one of the nation’s top fast-food burger chains with over 2,200 quick-serve restaurants in the U.S. and Guam, Jack in the Box is the convenience their consumers look for when cravings hit, offering one of the largest and most distinctive menus in the quick-serve restaurant space.

In partnership with their agency, Carat, Jack in the Box wanted to better understand the effectiveness of their media investment across channels, screens, markets and partners on both a national and local level. The campaign strategically delivered custom creatives to local markets to more closely align with the brand’s intended audiences while they game, hang, or do their thang. In order to gather a more detailed look at how these markets were performing, and how the brand could scale their success on a national level, the team partnered with VideoAmp to utilize a custom local measurement report.

The hyper targeted campaign reached 21.47M households across linear and digital channels. Whether audiences were looking to “pop off” or become “Breakfast Famous”, Jack in the Box successfully extended awareness for new menu items to core audiences on streaming and premium entertainment environments.
