  • How Do You Like Your Eggs? (This Must be the Place)

    My business idea for campus corner would be a breakfast spot. While there’s donuts and a couple coffee shops, there isn’t a spot for a really nice breakfast. Though it being on a college campus, time and efficiency are major factors in a student choosing their breakfast. Affordability too. My idea is that it would be kinda designed like a coffee shop, with lots of little tables and comfortable chairs. You would order up at the bar and then either sit and study before class or take it to go. They would serve breakfast staples like eggs, omelettes, pancakes but also a few different breakfast sandwiches for the on-the-go customer. Also I imagine them to have some killer coffee, so you don’t have to go two places to get breakfast and your latte. 

    I think with a campus restaurant for weekday service, the most important thing to highlight is ‘speed.’ Funny enough, I actually run the social media sites for a restaurant on campus corner, I like to post mostly during lunch because campus is busiest during that time. Factoring in that the customer is busy and has only an hour tops to have lunch is very important.

    So, for this assignment the brands name is “Eggs over Easy” and the objective is to advertise speedy breakfast for college students and professors. 

    Headline: Easy eggs for the busy student! 

    Text: Do you need a speedy breakfast before that 8am class? Come see us for an egg sandwich on your way to class!

    Call to action: Follow us on Instagram!

    Potential artwork: I thought something bright and fun, probably a picture with the food and a cup of coffee.

    The reach I calculated was about 44,000, I put in a radius of about 10 miles from campus corner and did adults 18-30, to mostly hit college students. I tried to mostly focus on students with this particular ad because it’s a campus restaurant. I thought maybe another ad would be better for all of Norman to just hit on a new local breakfast place. And budget for running the ad was about $5 a day. 

  • The Brunch Club (Lara Olivia Olfers)

    I’ve always thought the one thing Campus Corner is lacking is a solid breakfast place. On any Saturday night the restaurants and bars are all packed with lines out the doors but on Sunday morning, Campus Corner is a graveyard! Students travel all the way to Main St. to get a delicious breakfast to soothe their … [Read more…]
