Warming hearts, making S’mores
We hit the road with Hershey’s to share a little sweetness and inspire human connections.
When Hershey’s launched a campaign that was all about warming hearts, we knew we couldn’t just hand out samples. Our nationwide tour brought S’mores beyond the campfire—and brought people together, as only Hershey’s can.
Guests could get a premade S’more or pick up ingredients at the counter, then enjoy the timeless, communal experience of cooking S’mores together.
We added conversation starters on every plate, set up oversized games like “Connect S’more” and featured an instantly Instagrammable photo op.
The tour stopped at dozens of family-focused events across the country. GMR planned it all and handled the logistics: permits, DOT compliance, food storage and much more.
Our in-house staffing agency hired and trained over 200 people who worked on the tour. We found qualified candidates for highly specialized roles, even in small towns.
S’mores served per hour, or 2 per minute—S’mores aren’t exactly a speedy treat so that’s saying something!
