Hanabusa Café | Fervid Communications

Hanabusa Café

Hanabusa partnered with Fervid Communications to launch their restaurant opening through our social media and public relations service package. Hanabusa Café is located in Toronto serving soufflé pancakes and specialty beverages. The chic and trendy interior space allows customers to quickly order at the counter and sit down in the cafè to enjoy their pancakes.

Fervid developed a two-pronged program that included brand specific strategies to create pre-buzz and on-going narrative with customers, influencers and top-tier media. After the launch of
Hanabusa, the restaurant quickly became a popular hotspot for not only local residents, but also customers outside of the city.
