The California Food Tour was a 360-campaign that provided the opportunity for California locals to enjoy delicious eats at favorite local restaurants in San Diego, San Jose, and Burbank—all in one day.

The Challenge

To position Southwest Airlines as the relevant hometown carrier for 18-34 year-old flyers in the state of California.

The Strategy

Celebrate the things our customers are passionate about in their lives—mostly related to food, friends, travel, and culture.

How it Worked

Locals were targeted via email and social, driving them to our microsite where they could learn about the program, vote for a restaurant, and enter to win a chance to join the tour. Once the winning restaurants and participants were chosen, we enlisted 3 influencers and filmed the whole experience to push out on Southwest’s social channels.
