Awakening a sense of place around quality pasta.

Reimagining a legacy brand.

Costa Pasta is known to restaurateurs as the highest quality domestic pasta brand, backed by world class service. They needed to bring the parent company, Pasta Montana, to the forefront and communicate their quality story to a wider audience of foodservice buyers and architect the brand for targeted expansion.

Beginning with expansive storytelling.

We built a strategic messaging platform around the idea that you don’t have to cross the Mediterranean to find the place where world-class pasta is made.

Owning the field-to-table, more local story for sourcing and menuing premium pasta.

Leaning into Montana as a differentiator and premier location for quality pasta on par with the best imports.

Pasta is home.
And it’s bigger than Italy.
