Moose International is one of the world’s largest and oldest fraternal orders and service organizations. But by the 1990s, all service organizations saw a precipitous decline in membership that continues today. The CEO knew that Moose had to do something completely new to create a new revenue engine and be relevant for another hundred years — but didn’t know what it should be.
We dug deeply into Moose’s genetic code to identify what is True to the organization that drove loyalty for generations and reframed it for a new generation. We created Lodgic Everyday Community, the first-ever blend of productivity-boosting coworking (Lodgic Workplace), flexible on-demand childcare (Lodgic Kids Camp), all-day modern comfort food and drink (Everyday Kitchen Restaurant, Bar & Cafe), and all-inclusive best-in-class events (Lodgic Events) all in one seamless, hospitality-forward environment.
We led all aspects of brand development and launch, successfully bringing the total brand experience to life for Moose International across three thriving locations: Champaign, IL (opened 2018), Madison, WI (2020), and Louisville, KY (2021). The organization is currently exploring opportunities for expansion in new markets.
Four Brands. One Destination. Limitless Possibilities.
The Lodgic name connected the new brand to the Moose lodges that have been serving working people for 125 years, while casting a whole new vision for a smart gathering place designed for today. The brand architecture is simple, but the navigation system required great care to ensure a clear, easy-to-use experience for the consumer, no matter what their point of entry or need.
Quality licensed childcare in an on-demand, extended-hour format for today’s families with children ages 12 months to 12 years. Experiences kids love. Flexibility families need.
An elevated, hospitality-forward coworking experience with 24/7 access and concierge-style support for one simple monthly fee — no long-term commitments required. Focus on what you do best — we’ll do the rest.
A fresh, inventive approach to modern comfort food and drink inspired by local sourcing, infused with regional flavors, and served with warm hospitality. Love what you eat at Everyday Kitchen.
All-inclusive hospitality in spaces that shine. Enjoy seamless, no-hassle, always delightful meeting and event experiences for 2 to 125 guests.
Every time you choose Lodgic and its brands, you’re making good things happen for others, too. 100% of proceeds are reinvested in good works locally and nationally. Together, we do a little good every day.
“Cheryl and her team at SIGNAL make brand work actionable and useful — far beyond the marketing function often associated with branding. SIGNAL’s rigor in research and ability to define a brand through their unique platform format — which then serves as a cohesive filter for experiential, operational, and financial decisions — has proven an effective tool and ‘North Star’ to our restaurant work and the development of the project overall.”
