An American food franchise that primarily sells submarine sandwiches, and is one of the fastest-growing franchises in the world
Subway had just launched a nationwide $6 footlong campaign and a regional franchisee hired Cyclone Social to run a digital advertising campaign for his 50+ stores.
To increase weekly sales, Cyclone Social created a hyper-targeted Facebook and Instagram campaign, targeting potential Subway customers within a specific geographic radius. The creative for each segment was specifically tailored for that audience.
During the initial 3-week campaign, the select Subway locations had sales 18% greater than sales across the board. A follow-up campaign resulted in Subway stores running out of bread due to the increase in traffic!

“Though unsure what social media could do for our already saturated market, Cyclone Social took us to a new level of growth that we were not expecting.”
– Jim Miller (Franchisee – Subway)
