Laughter is the brightest, where food is the best.Irish proverb.
An introduction to Delilah’s, the cafe brand
Delilah’s is a cafe in Bahrain and part of BMMI’s F&B division. The owners of the food brand had built the cafe brand into a multi-unit offer with locations in three venues across the island. The cafe brand is conveniently located next to BMMI’s Alosra (‘the Family’ in Arabic) supermarkets, providing quick and convenient cafe experiences for tired shoppers. The cafe is especially popular with parents and mothers with children especially.
Challenges of a cafe brand
The challenges Delilah is facing is how to position the brand for growth and what avenues to take to increase revenues. The brand was not strongly positioned in the market and its offer was not clearly communicated or aiding differentiation from other cafe brands. The cafe brand was suffering and the firm was looking for help in realising the best aspects of the offer and on what equity could it leverage for growth.
Strategic guidance helped Delilah’s discover its true brand brilliance
We understood the issues the owners of the cafe brand were experiencing and from our experience in helping other brands find their brilliance we knew we could help a cafe brand like Delilah’s to find its true calling. From our investigations with customers, we quickly understood what Delilah’s best products were and also what their biggest weakness was. This coupled with a clear strategic direction of expanding online and through catering, the cafe brand was given new legs and new revenue streams.
We helped Delilah’s to find and express its true self – the artisanal cafe brand experience that is best experienced through their best product – great cakes. Working with the client, we expressed the artisanal quality of the brand’s offer through a radically different brand mark. Gone was the classic font and in came a new signature mark. Added to this was a graphic palette rich in artisanal aesthetics, including a new brand font (Archer) and a new set of subtle, hand-drawn illustrations of spices and flavours.
Delilah’s successful new cafe brand identity
Delilah’s is presented now as an artisanal cafe brand with hand-crafted cakes as one of its signature lines. The brand is rolling out across all locations and the new online and offline catering offer is building new customers in new areas with new revenue streams flowing into the company.
The new aesthetic is a refreshing new look which now fully aligns the brand’s intention with its perception. The mark sets the tone of a hand-crafted experience while the combination of the Archer brand font and illustrations completes the personality expression of a brand that cares about well-crafted food.
