Foodtown Names Constellation as Digital Agency of Record


Independent supermarket cooperative Allegiance Retail Services, names Constellation as its first Digital Agency of Record for its Foodtown stores, according to Peter Alemian, principal of PinSeeker Consulting who led the search and selection. Billings for the assignment were not disclosed.

Digital agencies in the mix were from New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Massachusetts. In the end it was New York's Constellation Agency that was selected by Allegiance to help take the cooperative forward.

Allegiance Retail Services Chief Marketing Officer, Donna Zambo noted, “Given the expanding role of digital channels in meal planning and grocery shopping today, we wanted to ensure that Allegiance and Foodtown were able to meet those needs both today and into the future.” To that end, they partnered with PinSeeker to conduct the digital agency search.

Alemian commented, “We had an incredible group of agencies in the mix – anyone of whom could have taken Foodtown’s digital efforts to the next level. What set Constellation apart was their depth of experience with franchise organizations and their ability to work at the corporate level and at the local franchisee level - providing brand support while driving traffic at store level.”

First work from Constellation is expected in the spring.
