Steve 10-26-2007 06:15 PM

Fortune had an interesting article on the process of rebranding a sub shop.

Check out the article. They also included a bunch of interesting photos. Some I liked and some I didn't. Tell me what your thoughts are on them.

How a chain of California sandwich shops reinvented itself for the national market. - How can you tell when your retail chain needs a face-lift? One clue: Prospective investors refuse to cough up expansion capital because they hate the way your stores look.

Jeff Warfield runs Submarina, a chain of California sub franchises based in San Marcos. Eager to take his successful restaurant concept national, Warfield approached venture capitalists for the funding. Every potential investor rejected his proposal on the grounds that Submarina needed a stronger brand identity, a tactful way of saying that his 37 stores suffered from bland décor and a confusing menu.


For instance, here is the sandwich packaging.

Before

and After
http://i.cnn.net/money/galleries/200.../sub_after.jpg

I almost think the first one was better. The new one looks too busy and it detracts from the branding.

What's your view?

Steve 10-26-2007 06:17 PM

Now they went on to the interior redesign.

Before:

http://i.cnn.net/money/galleries/200...ior_before.jpg

and After:

http://i.cnn.net/money/galleries/200...rior_after.jpg

Ok, do you notice much of a difference?

Steve 10-26-2007 06:18 PM

Now the Menu update

Before:

http://i.cnn.net/money/galleries/200...ard_before.jpg

and After:

http://i.cnn.net/money/galleries/200...oard_after.jpg

I think I actually like the before better. I think it is easier to read.

Steve 10-26-2007 06:20 PM

Wall decor update.

Before:

http://i.cnn.net/money/galleries/200...all_before.jpg

and After:

http://i.cnn.net/money/galleries/200...wall_after.jpg

Ok in this one I like the after. It's more colorful and there is more to look at. The before made it look way too plain.
