Fun (Happy/positive) We are long time friends, we work hard but have fun together Our employees have fun working here – we employ people we like and trust, and they are rewarded in return We all look forward to going into the store every day – this is a place were people want to work

Informed We are well informed about our produce, we love cooking, and we have sampled cuisines from across the world, we will share our knowledge with our customers Through our events and the information in store our customers will learn more about the health benefits of our foods, their provenance, and how best to prepare/cook them

Relaxed (informal? - Company values?) We’re particular, but not formal, we won’t stand on ceremony Our employees wear a uniform, but we’re not in suits! Our employees look clean, well put-together and professional – you will be comfortable with them handling your food.

Brand Structure Core Brand Value • The final piece of the jigsaw and the foundation stone of our brand positioning. • This is the single word or phrase that we should aim to own in our prospect’s mind. • It should be a thought that no current competitor owns. • It is the one thing that is inherently true and relevant to what we are and what our service offers. • It is marketable, single-minded and simple.

Tuesday, 26 April 2011


Core Brand Value Our recommended core brand value for Grady & Kern is:

“good food community” ‘Loyal’, ‘fair’, ‘good for you’ Our mission is to supply food that is good for you and your community.

What is a Tagline?  • An effective tagline can help promote your business. Taglines are generally descriptive phrases that accompany a brand name. E.g Yell.com - The UK’s local search engine. They help explain what your business does or create an emotional response. Taglines need to be descriptive - they explain what your business does Emotional - they create a tone or feeling about your business. • Taglines should be simple and memorable. Businesses with names that don't particularly resemble their products and services can use a tagline can help. Rules In most cases, effective taglines are: • Short and simple (no more than 10 words) - the shorter the better • Positive - people like positive statements - negatives are a turn-off. • Interesting - the tagline should spark interest. • Timeless - your tagline will be around for 20yrs, so don't use text that will date it. • Tested - make sure you test the tagline on colleagues, business partners for feedback before using it. Don't create a tagline by yourself

Tuesday, 26 April 2011


Tagline Tips  GOOD • Convey your differentiation and a clear benefit. • Clear and informative. • Just long enough - 6-8 words. Long enough to convey a thought and short enough to be absorbed easily. • Personable, lively and sometimes clever! BAD • Vague or generic • Too long
