These branded cabs were used for promotional purposes with coffee company Percol’s ‘Cool Beans’ tour of London!

London Taxi Advertising partnered with Percol coffee company, part of Food Brands Group Ltd, to coordinate a fantastic full livery advertising campaign in the capital. The cabs were also used for promotional purposes to help introduce the Percol brand to a UK audience.

The branded taxis were the perfect accompaniment for Percol’s PR strategy, with the cabs touring the city as representatives handed out delicious free samples to Londoners. The stunt even featured performances from a live mariachi band who used the cabs to travel around London.

The campaign was part of a multi-platform advertising campaign, with black cabs deemed the obvious choice to showcase Percol to the people of London!
