Gelson’s Market

Gelson’s Market, a premium grocery chain located throughout Southern California, has been known since 1951 for offering the highest quality, freshest food in the region, along with superb standards of service.

In the competitive Los Angeles grocery arena, Gelson’s stands apart from its competition, but it also faces challenges in how to effectively communicate these benefits outside of its loyal customer base. We worked with the Gelson’s team to refocus their online marketing strategy, highlighting the unparalleled value of shopping at their markets, to acquire new customers and inspire existing customers to shop more.

We integrated our insights into the grocery business and consumer food behaviors with the unique seasonal and cultural attributes of Southern California to produce a new content marketing plan that appeals to both new and existing customers.

This comprehensive strategic approach, including social media, paid media and email, combines inspirational brand messages with food photography and recipe videos that are upscale, yet approachable, to capture the beauty and quality of the food available every day at Gelson’s.
