Delivering the goods

With more than 15,000 searches for ‘Road Trips’ each month, this was a topic worth exploring. Our campaign came alive when keyword research led us to topics such as ‘Food Road Trips’ and ‘Junk Food Road Trips’ which were the perfect fit for Gousto.

We developed a concept encompassing several different ‘styles’ of food themed road trips, including a Sea-foodie Road Trip along the coast of Vietnam and A Belt Bustin’ Texan BBQ Adventure to name just two.

Our food themed road trips came complete with real traveller imagery and embeddable Google Maps of the journey to give writers a real taste for the foodie adventure.

Multiple travel and lifestyle publications picked up the Foodie Road Trips campaign, with one outlet featuring all 8 of Gousto’s road trips!
