Duck & Waffle: Localising an international brand in Hong Kong

Duck & Waffle

Localising an international brand in Hong Kong 

Duck & Waffle had a lot of attention prior to opening in Hong Kong, it’s first international location outside of London. The critically acclaimed restaurant serves up British cuisine with broad European influences – sometimes traditional, always playful.

Our key priority was to shape the brand positioning of the concept and sustain the buzz and excitement after the opening period in Hong Kong’s competitive dining scene. The key challenge was to distinguish Duck & Waffle Hong Kong from its London location while also celebrating the brand’s signature dishes.
