Crisis Management/Public Relations Competition

Scenario: Congratulations, you are the head of the public relations team of a famous fast-food brand. The brand has locations all over the country and is well known for its values: quality, competitive prices, and integrity. 

A famous influencer posted this morning an Instagram Story that went viral. Her husband found a worm in his <Extra Hot Chicken Sandwich>. His face when discovering the worm is already a meme. 

The <Extra Hot Chicken Sandwich> is the best-seller of the brand. More than one million people have posted on social media to ask for answers regarding this event. All of the comments are negative. 

You have to come up with a solution to this crisis in three points:

1: Why do you think this post could be considered a crisis for the brand?

2: What will be your primary goal when handling this issue?

3: Develop the actions your team will take:

-two short term actions (the day after the incident)

-two medium-term actions (during the week following the post)

-one long-term action (during the month following the event)

Good luck with handling this crisis! In your response, think about all of the platforms you can use. For example, you can post on social media (which ones?), publish on your website, release press releases, print posters for the stores, share a new slogan on TV…you can develop all of the actions you think will suit the situation best. You can write your three-part plan using any type of software you have at your disposal (Microsoft Word, notes on your phone, etc.).

Instructions for Submission:

Competitors will have until 4:00pm on Wednesday, April 22 to submit a response to the crisis scenario. Submissions can be uploaded via the provided Dropbox link on the www.imc3.me website.

Contrast: Make the most important elements stand out on your design. This increases visibility, importance, and understanding.

Repetition: Repeat visual elements (colors, fonts, shapes, etc.) across the design to create a strong unified set of visuals.
