Welcome History SWOT Analysis About Consumers Demographics Competitive Landscape


Welcome to Golden Nugget

Golden Nugget restaurant has been serving communities of Chicago since 1966 and has been a staple of the city ever since. Through the years, they have built a reputation of good food at good prices and they are open 24 hours.



The brand essence of Golden Nugget is the embodiment of home cooking, with good food, friendly faces and a comfortable environment.

Golden Nugget Restaurant is a family owned, family-style restaurant chain with seven locations in Chicago. In business for 47 years, Golden Nugget Restaurant has a rich and long history in Chicago by serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Although it has an excellent reputation among its loyal patrons, the brand recognition has weakened through the years resulting in a decrease of total sales.



Golden Nugget restaurant has been using the same logo for 47 years and through the years the logo has been altered slightly with each new location. The current logo, reminiscent of the Golden Nugget Casino, which the owner worked as a blackjack dealer, needs to convey a fresh, clean look to reflect the healthy food they serve.


The Golden Nugget mission is to always offer the very best to their customers.

About Consumers What are Consumers looking for in a restaurant? Good Value


Healthy Choices



Family Friendly Environment


Consumers believe family-style restaurants offer a better value than other types of restaurants. They are looking for a healthy, low cost, alternative to fast food when they are out with children. Over half of consumers are more likely to go to Golden Nugget when they discover all of the healthy choices they have available and made fresh to order.

How Consumers are Spending

Demographics Based on the data of consumer spending, these profiles target the consumers who spend the least for dinner. These are the consumers Golden Nugget needs to convince to visit and why. With the focus on what consumers want, healthy food in a comfortable atmosphere at good prices, Golden Nugget can entice single parents and singles with no children to visit when they are hungry. The other consumers will see the value as well and visit Golden Nugget more often.


Meet Jenny Research

Jenny is a 28 year old, working, single parent of two boys. She works hard and is a devoted mother. There are times she just wants to take a break. Golden Nugget is a good value for her, and her children have healthy choices from the menu.

Meet Kevin

Kevin is a 37 year old, single male. He works for the Streets and Sanitation Department in Chicago. He works hard and he plays hard. He plays basketball with his buddies at the YMCA. He has no idea there is a Golden Nugget location one block away, a perfect place to hang out and grab a bite.


Competitive Landscape The two big competitors are Denny’s and IHOP. They offer breakfast, lunch and dinner, and they offer a sit-down atmosphere with items made from fresh ingredients along with friendly service. IHOP and Denny’s are both franchised, but their revenue reflects the tough economy in the same way as Golden Nugget. The ablility to compete with IHOP and Denny’s would be a big step for Golden Nugget.

In contrast, Golden Nugget restaurant offers more than just a sit-down atmosphere, it is a family friendly environment. They offer more than just fresh ingredients, it is slow-cooked, fresh made, beef stew, fruit compote and other tasty dishes. They offer more than just friendly service, they cook the food the way the customer wants it. It is clear that Golden Nugget goes the extra distance and does more to make and keep their diners happy.

The Golden Nugget vision is to be the best informal “go to� place in Chicago, anytime. 15

Creative Colors Typography Moodboards Logo Development Assembling Elements


Creative Colors The colors need to represent the fresh, healthy wholesome food that Golden

Nugget serves everyday. By steering away from the reds and blues of the competition, Golden Nugget will have a color palette unique and inviting. The colors should have the feel of casual and friendly.

Gold represents quality, prestige, success, and adds richness and warmth to everything (Scott-Kemmis, 2013). It also coincides with the name of the company. Green represents growth, health, cleanliness, fresh, comfort, and safety (Color Psychology, 2011). Brown represents reliability, stability, friendship, and comfort (Color Psychology, 2011). It also means honestly, genuine and sincere and associated with wholesome, natural and organic produce (Scott-Kemmis, 2013).

Media Strategy The media strategy reinforces the brand identity and increases brand recognition through the use of various media to create touchpoint that will reach the target audience. The strategy is to optimize the available technology to maximize the media coverage. More touch points a company has, the better chance of reaching the target demographics. A proper media strategy maximizes the impact of each asset and strengthens the company’s market positioning. The following are examples of new assets designed to propel the company with a high return of investment or ROI.


Media Optimization Video







Golden Nugget has signs at each of the seven locations that do not match. The new signage proposed will unite the brand between locations and add to brand recognition. Location is the most important issue to any business. The signs will make each location stand out. This asset is listed first because it addresses the priority issue of brand unification and is the solution to three threats revealed in SWOT.

Billboards The billboards will direct a traveler to a location when they are in the vicinity. This will bring more people to the locations that where unknown to them. New signs would place Golden Nugget in step with its competitors and make its locations recognizable as part of the Golden Nugget chain.

Web Video Television airtime can be costly, but it is also the best way to reach the most people. Video commercials and animated web video are needed for Golden Nugget to raise awareness and catapult the brand recognition above the rest of the competitors by reaching more viewers. Although IHOP and Denny’s has cute commercials, Golden Nugget can have original commercials focused on healthy eating, this will be enough to differentiate Golden Nugget from its competition. Studies by Dynamic Logic “shows that video ads perform at the top compared to other formats� (Maddox, 2005). Besides television, YouTube, and Vimeo, Video has the ability to cross over to other media easily. This includes digital billboards and Internet advertising on related websites. A low-cost 20 sec animation with a good list of keywords will get more viewers than some cable stations.

Social Media Allowing for customer feedback, comments and criticism, Social media, like Facebook and Twitter, have become the best way to communicate with customers. It is also the best way to gain new customers and retain repeat ones.



Social media is the fastest growing communication technology today.

Social media interaction with consumers will make the consumer feel that Golden Nugget cares about what they think and gives Golden Nugget the ability to address concerns and correct contradictions of the brand identity.

Mobile Apps “A service is a chain of sequential, parallel, or non linear activities or events that form a process and have value to the end user� (Saffer, 2010). Golden Nugget mobile apps offer a calorie counter for those customers who are watching their weight, a kids corner with games to keep them busy while they wait for their food, and an app for tourists to include a GPS map or turn-by-turn directions to the closest location, so they don’t get lost. These services are relevant to the brand and helpful to the user to make their visit more enjoyable, memorable and more apt to visit the restaurant again.

There are a variety of uses for a QR code: URL, IM, text message, E-mail, Business cards and coupons. Another use for QR scan is for feedback and comments. “Add them to any print advertising, flyers, posters, invites, TV ads, etc. containing: product details, contact details, offer details, event details, competition details, a coupon, Twitter ID, Facebook ID, MySpace ID, or a link to your YouTube video� (Lyne, 2009).


A Special Event



The 50th Anniversary Golden Nugget Scavenger Hunt with the grand prize of a real gold nugget (estimated value of $200-$300). With the use of the Facebook page and their website, the contest would include visits to each location, scan of a specially designed QR/2D icon for a question specific to each location, enter the correct answer for a virtual star for each location.


Every Facebook fan to receive seven stars, one for each location, will have their name put in to the sweepstake drawing for the gold nugget. Registration is required to enter the contest, to increase their mailing list and Facebook fan base. This would create a buzz in the market, which would increase brand recognition. The goal is “to seek out the trendsetters in each community and cleverly push them into talking up their brands to their friends and admirers� (Notarantonio and Quigley, 2009).

Designer Notes:


This project book is a representation of ten months of research, experimentation, design choices and applications. Golden Nugget restaurant has always been a staple in Chicago ever since I can remember. I have gained a deeper understanding of the company and the people who work there during this process. I know that the elements I have chosen will hit the target audience. Every time I look through this book, I get hungry. This campaign that I have created will inform readers that Golden Nugget does have fresh cooked, healthy choices that are in a friendly, comfortable environment, for themselves and their families and friends.
