Starbucks kicks off EMEA ad contest

Starbucks is on the hunt for an agency to handle creative duties across EMEA for the first time.

Starbucks kicks off EMEA ad contest

72andSunny, Starbucks’ global ad agency, is not affected by the review. The brand wants to use a specialist shop to handle creative across its European markets in particular. 

Starbucks has sent a request for information to several agencies in the UK ahead of a review overseen by Creativebrief.

The coffee chain also works with Oliver, which provides an in-house unit that manages in-store and point-of-sale activity.

Howard Schultz stepped down as Starbucks’ chief executive in April and was replaced by chief operating officer Kevin Johnson. 

A Starbucks spokeswoman confirmed the review and added: "With 41 countries in EMEA, we want to celebrate how Starbucks’ coffee leadership comes to life across a diverse region."
