We succeeded 357% Instagram account growth, from the first semester.

First of all, our main target with Christoforos Veneris Bakeries, was to attune the values of the company with social media accounts. Moreover, to begin interacting with new and old customers, and create a strong local brand awareness. Also for Mageirio was necessary to communicate the daily menu in order to inform people for their meal choices.

Our main goal, was to reveal to the public that all products are fresh and handmade. For this reason, we create small stories from the bakery’s preparation laboratory, where bakers prepare and bake all products. Finally we provide, for Mageirio cook house daily instagram story feeds to inform clients for everyday menu.
