Cundari Launches Fix Auto’s First National Campaign

February 25, 2015

Montreal, February 25, 2015 – Cundari has launched the first national campaign for Fix Auto, Canada’s largest network of auto body shops. The objective for the campaign, which initially launched in November, was to increase brand awareness among consumers and maximize sales across the country.

“We are very pleased that Fix Auto has given us the chance to take on this challenge and the freedom to leverage our creative ideas to bring the campaign concept to life,” says Sébastien Tessier, Creative Director at Cundari.

Since its initial launch, the campaign, dubbed ‘First Word’, has exceeded expectations. On a national level, brand awareness has skyrocketed – the amount of customers who have heard of Fix Auto through television advertising has increased by 700%.

“We took a calculated risk by choosing a message that plays on blasphemy, especially as this campaign represents our largest advertising investment to date,” says Carl Brabander, Vice-President of Marketing at Fix Auto. “However we trusted Cundari’s team and their distinct creative approach, and they proved us right. The campaign is a home run!”

The national campaign is in market for twelve months, in English and French, and runs on television, online, through mobile and integrated in select video games. It also supports the recent expansion of the network, which has been enriched by more than 40 new auto body shops around the world in the past year. Due to the success of the concept, with consumers and franchisees, the campaign will soon launch in the United States.
