Mitchells & Butlers

Mitchells & Butlers is the UK's largest operator of restaurants, pubs and bars. They operate 18 brands, each with their own digital and social campaign activities, and two full seasonal refreshes across 1,600 venues nationally. Our hybrid agency model fits perfectly. We provide artworking, design, digital and social media resources located onsite with their brand teams, supported by specialists and additional capacity offsite when needed. From artworking Mitchells & Butlers' entire portfolio of menus to providing social and digital strategy and insight to key brands, Purple has the skills and scale to satisfy Mitchells & Butlers' ever growing marketing needs.

This is an example of a fully integrated hybrid relationship. At its heart is a fully functioning onsite studio located in Mitchells & Butlers' Birmingham head office. This provides a highly efficient local artworking service and a growing creative, social and digital capability. The onsite function is supported by our central strategy, planning, social and creative teams and our UK production hub.

Our hybrid working model means we can respond quickly to almost any marketing need, and control the delivery of a complex portfolio of content, collateral and campaigns. Being onsite means closer collaboration, more visibility and being able to provide dedicated support to any of Mitchells & Butlers' high street brands, including Harvester, Sizzling pubs, O'Neill’s and All Bar One to name but a few.
