Madison Media has been appointed as the media AoR (Agency on Record) for India’s leading chain of coffee Cafés, Café Coffee Day (CCD). Being the pioneers of the café culture in the country and an innovator in the category, CCD today has over 1,450 cafes across over 185 cities and growing.
Café Coffee Day (CCD) as a brand has never advertised in mass media in the last 16 years of its existence. It has been built solely through unique and pioneering marketing initiatives, coffee category building activities, public relations, social media, engaging the ever aspirational Indian consumer. However, today with brand presence expanding over 185 cities into newer, emerging towns and markets, it’s time for the brand to introduce their first ever television commercial campaign “Sit Down” aiming to reinforce itself into every single household in India, as they make inroads into several newer and unconventional markets. The account size is estimated to be approx Rs. 40 crores and will be handled by Madison Media Omega in Bangalore.

Ramakrishnan, President Marketing, Café Coffee Day said, “Café Coffee Day being a brand for the young and the young at heart, we needed a partner who would be passionate about the brand, to be able to understand the category in depth and the varying dynamics to enable us to move along at a fast pace.
