Red Robin appears to be in search of a new creative agency.
KBS is no longer working with the client, according to sources with direct knowledge of the matter. Red Robin has yet to respond to repeated requests for comment. As of publication, a KBS spokesperson has also yet to respond to our request for comment.
The burger-focused casual dining chain appointed KBS as its agency of record in July of 2016, following a review launched that April. KBS subsequently rolled out a man bun-mocking campaign at the beginning of the year. Red Robin had previously worked with Vitro, which it named as its AOR back in 2013.
KBS announced yesterday that it would not be participating in longtime client BMW’s creative review, which was launched in October.
