Publicis Kaplan Thaler Celebrates with a Nap
HICKSVILLE, NY (June 11, 2013) – Companies that still handle all of their own advertising and media are a rare breed in today’s business world. Most elect to hire a specialized advertising agency to handle those matters. However, since 1931 Sleepy’s had done all of their work in-house, until their recent strategic expansion plan was set in motion. Sleepy’s would now need a lead creative agency.
In an exhaustive review Sleepy’s considered a slew of major agencies eager for a shot to work with the brand. After evaluating many options, including New York powers Havas Worldwide and Gotham, the retail giant selected Publicis Kaplan Thaler , citing their “great consumer insights, strong strategic clarity, integrated creative, chemistry and retail experience,” as the driving force behind their choice. Sleepy’s has an annual media spend of roughly 75 million dollars, and creative work will begin shortly on television, print, radio, digital and out-of-home.
Enthusiasm is rampant according to chairman Linda Kaplan Thaler, “We are inspired to help facilitate the ‘new’ Sleepy’s with its unprecedented growth and new market expansion plans. Publicis Kaplan Thaler is delighted to partner with Sleepy’s to take this exciting and powerful brand to new heights.”
