Subway is reviewing its brand strategy

Over the past two years under the guidance of Wunderman Thompson, Subway has undertaken a brand transformation, the brand said in a statement.

Subway Australia and New Zealand head of marketing, Rodica Titeica, said the successful agency that will take the brand to its “next strategic phase”.

“Wunderman Thompson has been instrumental in helping us deliver our brand transformation across Australia and New Zealand, with the award-winning Fall in Love with Lunch Again and World Sandwich Day campaigns,” Titeica said.

“Over the past two years Subway has revitalised our core menu, transformed our restaurants and launched an app and loyalty program, with Wunderman Thompson successfully helping us invite Aussies and Kiwis into our restaurants for a new Subway experience.

“At the cusp of a major new stage for the brand, we are inviting some of the best agency minds in Australia the chance to partner with us and help shape our brand creative strategy.”

The move follows the addition of a new incoming global CEO and chief marketing officer.

Subway expects to make an appointment by the middle of the year.
