Holiday Inn Express Turns Blue Monday into Bacon Monday


Breakfast campaign devised by JWT London sees hundreds of bacon baps handed out for free on the streets of London

Holiday Inn Express Turns Blue Monday into Bacon Monday
On Monday 15th January, Holiday Inn Express showed that they know what matters by taking to the streets of London and turning ‘Blue Monday’ into ‘Bacon Monday’ by handing out hundreds of free Holiday Inn Express bacon baps to brighten people’s day.

Following extensive customer research, Holiday Inn Express found that adding bacon to their breakfast included offering significantly increased overall satisfaction scores. Turns out their customers really, really love bacon. A lot.

The campaign, devised by J Walter Thompson London, ultimately serves to let travellers know that Holiday Inn Express’ inclusive, unlimited Express Start™ breakfast now features bacon. 

At 6am on Monday the 15th of January, a teaser film was released on Holiday Inn Express’s Facebook page telling London’s commuters where the Baconmobile would be. The first location was just outside Box Park in Shoreditch at 7am. It then made its way to Russell Square for around 11am, stopping all along the route to hand out its mouth-watering bacon rolls, and a vegetarian option available for those non-meat eaters.

Lucas Peon, Executive Creative Director at J. Walter Thompson London, said: “We knew that having bacon on the breakfast menu had made Holiday Inn Express’ guests really happy. So on the bluest day of the year we thought what better way to provide a little pick me up to London’s commuters first thing on a rainy, grey morning than a free bacon bap and a little comedy. After all, Holiday Inn Express is the brand that knows what matters. And starting your day right matters.”

Mike Greenup, Vice President, Brand Management for Holiday Inn Express, IHG said: “We know what matters when it comes to our guests and the importance of setting them up to make the most of their day, that includes enjoying a good breakfast. From our research, it’s clear to see that bacon is a favourite breakfast choice — there is nothing better than waking up to the smell of bacon cooking away!”

Watch here for a wrap-up of the day.
