This week, we’ve launched our first national ad campaign in Russia. It’s a huge step forward for the company, a new level, and on top of that, a great opportunity for our brand. Why?

It’s simple. Dodo Pizza has become the first brand to be promoted on national TV in the “pizza” category. Previously, our competitors aired their commercials only in regional blocks (for example, only in Moscow). Nobody did it across the country before us.

We’re investing a significant amount of money in this campaign—at least, for us. 100 million rubles—around $1.6 mln. We had to find the best...

CEO of Dodo Pizza USA

People often ask me how we’ve done it. We barged into a crowded market with a generic product. We didn't have any brand. We didn't spend oodles of money on advertising, coupons, and promotions, like our competitors were doing. And while usually in our industry others go out of business in six months or a year, we saw profit in the second month. A year and a half later, we are still in business—and expanding. In this post, I'll tell you how to market a restaurant without marketing it or at least how we did it—and how you can...
