  • Subway 

subwayFor Subway, unlike digital, TV has proven to be still effective for advertising. The company was able to purchase a US$ 4 million slot the Friday before the Super Bowl, after an advertiser dropped out. However, the price the company paid was even lower than the going rate. It was a move that reflected how Subway is facing the challenges of the competitive landscape in the fast-food business and the rise of social media. According to Subway’s Chief Marketing Officer Tony Pace: “Most digital screens are too small to deliver maximum impact. In our business you can see results pretty quickly with television.”
