“We are launching this campaign throughout the territories that we supply in Mexico with the idea that many persons can have a can or bottle with their name on it, but we can also imagine this as a good opportunity to share them with friends, start a conversation, remind someone how special they are to you, amongst other positive attitudes,” said Jean Claude Tissot, Executive Marketing Officer of Arca Continental.

Besides the millions of personalized products found at thousands of stores through the Traditional Channel, supermarkets, convenience stores, and other points of sale in the territory covered by Arca Continental in Mexico, the bottling company, whose headquarters is in Monterrey, will install centers at different points of sale around the country to customize a Coca-Cola can with the name of the persons whose names are not found on store shelves.

The brand adapted the first campaign presented in 2012 in Australia named “Share a Coke” seeking to offer a new experience to the Mexican people. Some of the countries where people have obtained a product with their name were: the United Kingdom, France, Belgium, Spain, Argentina, Brazil, amongst others.

Some of the names that you will be able to find on the 355 mL cans and 600 mL PET bottles are “Maria”, “Pablo”, “Laura”, “Eduardo”, “Pam”, “Beto, “Ale”, “Memo” and colloquial nicknames like “a friend”. There will be others names like “family” and “friends” to share too.

The selection of names that you will find in the market are based on a study* of the consumers’ preferences of the three brands. Furthermore, starting on the second week of August, there will be more than 20 states in country with customizing centers for anyone who cannot find their name in stores can obtain it on a can

Starting on July 14th, users can customize and share digital cans when they enter

At the national level, advertising campaigns will be on television, radio, at cinemas, social networks, Coca-Cola FM, billboards, and activations. In Mexico, the adaptation to the campaign was carried out by the Only IF Agency.
