Insights, Strategy & the Idea
Isabelle is a famous brand of wedding cake in Taiwan. However, the increasing trend of bachelorism and marriage at later ages combined with the global financial tsunami have caused 25% fall in the marriage rate, and dramatically dropped the demand of wedding cake. Our mission is to awaken the marriage desire of marriageable people to increase the sales.
