Description

“Limited service specialty restaurants are often singular-item focused. They must figure out how to create buzz and position their item in a variety of ways to appeal to a wide range of consumers. Certain brands have found success in creating line extensions with seasonal and limited-time offers, new formats like bowls and bites, and healthful options including add-ins. Other brands are offering full-on customization, providing consumers with a tailored experience. Price continues to be a driving factor for usage, as consumers continue to search for deals. Technology can provide discounts, speed, and convenience as well as drive repeat business with mobile loyalty apps.”
