Madison Media has been appointed as the media AoR (Agency on Record) for Café Coffee Day (CCD). The chain has over 1,450 cafes across over 185 cities.
The account size is estimated to be approximately Rs 40 crore. It will be handled by Madison Media Omega in Bangalore. Creativeland Asia is the creative agency of the brand.
Commenting on this development, K Ramakrishnan, President – Marketing, Café Coffee Day said, “Café Coffee Day being a brand for the young and the young at heart, we needed a partner who would be passionate about the brand, to be able to understand the category in depth and the varying dynamics to enable us to move along at a fast pace. We are confident of Madison Media’s thought leadership and competence in executing the campaigns. We are delighted to have them on board.”
