Tinder Case Study

This Tinder Case Study by Pop Tate’s explores how the restaurant used the platform to create buzz around their Valentine’s Day offering



Brand Introduction

A hangout place in Mumbai and Pune, Pop Tate’s is inspired by the famous and most loved comic series, “Archie’s”. The retro feel at the “Unrestaurant” is a perfect place to unwind, binge, drink and make merry!

The marketing objective from Social Media is to connect and engage with the target audience.


Pop Tate’s wanted to talk about their exclusive Valentine’s Day Menu. The marketing had to be in a product centric manner with ads consisting of the Menu and the offer.

Creative Idea

Given the occasion, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter would be flooded with Valentine’s Day Ads from restaurants; which is where Tinder came into the picture.

Pop Tate’s wanted people to #SwipeRight on the restaurant’s profile so that they could communicate with the exact Target. The Social media pages had post designs similar to the UI of Tinder.


As per online sources, India is Tinder’s (the dating app) top market in Asia, and get’s approximately 15 Million daily swipes from the country. Pop Tate’s Valentine’s Day campaign, #SwipeRight focused on pitching the restaurant as the perfect destination for Valentine’s.
