coach house pub


say what! brand creation & marketing campaign


The Challenge

The Coach House Pub in Ballantrae, Ontario was coming out of the third lockdown from COVID-19 and was bringing in new partners and in need of a new brand. The Coach House was changing from a traditional pub to an upscale gastropub and needed a fresh look and feel to reflect the changes in direction, new patio and new menu.

The Solution

The say what! branding team work with the partners to develop a brand that represented their vision of their new gastropub direction. The brand-mark includes an intertwined ‘CHP’ emblem that is used on its own along as a key element the full beer coaster style logo. Once the brand was established, we then focused on signage, menus, uniforms and a full digital campaign. The online elements include a new website and social media channels which focus on their food and ongoing musical events. We also implemented an online reservation section along with an events scheduling system.

The feedback from the Coach House customers on the revised brand, food and new deck has been amazing.

Say What! brought our vision to life

The Coach House Pub engaged Say What! Communications to help with our rebrand as a local gastropub.  We needed everything from a new look and logo, to a new website and social media presence and everything in between, and they nailed it!  The experience working with Grant and his team has been excellent.  Their depth of knowledge in the branding process along with their creativity and proactivity was exactly what we needed to help us get ready to launch in a very short timeframe.  Overall, it was an fantastic experience working with Grant and the Say What team!!  We would recommend them without a second thought!
