This marketing campaign focuses on successfully launching the ‘Simply Bistro’ restaurant brand into the Taupo market, as well as developing the ‘Simple but Nice’ personal brand of owner/chef, Jude Messenger.
The ‘Simply Bistro’ concept is of a 50-60 seat, local’s eatery, modelled in the style of a Kiwi inspired French bistro. The restaurant will offer simple affordable meals made from the freshest local produce, showcased on a regularly changing menu, with no dish being priced at more than $30.

With the integration of multiple media channels; online space, print advertising, outdoors advertising, direct advertising and radio advertising, incorporating creative elements focused on building a buzz and creating awareness of the new restaurant, the campaign will deliver two key marketing messages:
- Serving you fresh, quality, well-executed, simple food at a price that you can afford. ‘Simple but Nice’
- Jude Messenger, your local chef, new restaurant, new food, ‘Simple but Nice’
