Quick Service Restaurant Increases Customer Appetites

This QSR relies on contextual TV advertising to drive sales, but it was being outspent by the competition and needed a cost-efficient way to reach likely customers. The QSR wanted to increase earnings and grow their market share through a more targeted, audience-centric approach to its TV advertising.
