Digital Marketing for Your Canadian QSR Brand

Quick service restaurants in Canada know what it takes to operate in a market where demand is high and competition is fierce; after all, not everyone can have the best poutine in town. For QSR brands, the digital space is invaluable for maximizing visibility, spreading the word and driving traffic to their various locations. Luckily, DAC’s fast food expertise extends beyond where to find the best burritos in town: we also know a thing or two about whipping up optimized, results-driven campaigns for QSR brands, giving each franchise location the attention it deserves. Our approach—just like our strategy for choosing the best poutine—is all in the details.
