Vivid Candi Case Study

Tacos Gavilan

We dived deep into revitalizing the online presence of Tacos Gavilan.

Tacos Gavilan is a chain of fast-casual Mexican eateries with 14 locations throughout Southern California. In its 30 year history, Tacos Gavilan had only touched the surface of digital advertising and relied on traditional radio and billboards to reach a narrow audience. Our agency implemented a cohesive, full-service strategy that would create a strong digitally branded identity and tap into a large population of taco lovers across channels, significantly broadening the demographics of their customer base.
