We were challenged to bring the craveable lobster sandwich to the good people of Atlantic Canada. The limited time offer (LTO) lobster sandwich was a premium product with a price point nearly double the cost of the average Subway sandwich.

LTO products make up 3% of monthly product sales for Canadian Subway restaurants. Our goal was to exceed that projection in the most delicious way possible. Our 360 marketing plan included traditional POS, OOH, radio, and TV, as well as a mobile and digital ad campaign featuring video and organic social posting across Atlantic Canada.


Subway is the world’s largest submarine sandwich chain with more than 44,000 locations around the world. Their vision for the future is to grow and continue to be guided by their passion for delighting customers—serving them delicious, made-to-order sandwiches.
