PROVIDENCE, R.I., Feb. 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The best way to have a great day is to start with a good morning, and McDonald's is serving up just that. Today, McDonald's unveiled its new integrated advertising campaign, Good Morning Providence, which captures real Rhode Islanders unexpectedly being surprised with a warm McDonald's breakfast served by actual restaurant crew members.
Developed and lead by creative advertising agency, H&L Partners, who just opened its new Boston location, Good Morning Providence, is the company's first local campaign. It consists of two 30-second broadcast spots, launching today, filmed at Thayer Warburton Arena in Warwick, RI. Local crew members were used in the filming - shot back in December - after attending an open casting call. In the commercials, the crew delivers fresh, hot McDonald's breakfast to unsuspecting, real people in real situations. With the goal of providing Rhode Island consumers a good morning, the campaign also reinforces that McDonald's offers balanced meals, quality coffee and beverage options, and efficient service at a great value.
"The strength of this campaign is in its simplicity," said Mark Schaeffer, President of H&L Partners. "Delivering a nice surprise in the form of a hot cup of McCafe coffee or an Egg McMuffin sandwich in the midst of the morning routine reminds consumers how great breakfast at McDonald's is every day."
"The smiles delivered as a result of this campaign are genuine and organic," said Steve Walach, local McDonald's Owner/Operator. "Our restaurant crew truly impacted consumers' mornings in a positive way -- something we strive to do daily."
H&L Partners now occupies office space at 132 Canal Street in Boston. They currently have eight employees in Boston and will continue to expand. The Boston team is supported by H&L's creative and production teams in San Francisco and St. Louis.
