Earth Fare

Earth Fare is a rapidly growing national chain of health-conscious grocery stores, headquartered in Asheville, NC. Earth Fare’s vision is to be the most trusted organic and natural food market in the country – a place where healthy decisions are easy, people have confidence in the food they buy and everyone feels welcome. To accomplish this, Earth Fare has embarked on a rapid multi-state expansion plan. 

the challenge

Earth Fare wants to be known as the grocery store for REAL food. However, they’ve become better known for their constant couponing than the quality of their product. Earth Fare partnered with agencyQ to help them better align their digital strategy with their business goals, closing the gap between in-store and online.
