For the brand that once dominated the appetizer category to make a comeback, it needed an amazing story and a bold approach to telling it.
As the original appetizer brand and inventor of the jalapeño popper, Anchor® was once the king of appetizer innovation. This campaign re-established their category leadership, inspiring thousands of restaurant operators along the way.
Reignite Anchor’s spirit of originality in a way that inspires restaurant operators to think about appetizers in all new ways.
Put innovation at the forefront of everything Anchor does. From unexpected media placements to unprecedented digital menu support and even uniquely styled photography, Anchor acts differently everywhere it goes.
Owning “the original” means doing everything differently, from how we depict flavor, to the below-the-table photography angle.
