The Challenge

In order to see a boost in revenue, Quick Service Restaurant (QSR) brands need to offer their customers relevant and personalized marketing materials in order to stand out from the crowd. And when Kahala Brands-owned Blimpie Restaurants wanted to increase guest frequency, drive additional drink purchases, and promote the trial of new menu offerings, they reached out to Mobivity to see how we could help.

Over the following 12 week pilot program, Blimpie used Mobivity’s Recurrency platform to achieve just that. The trial resulted in both an attributable lift in customer frequency, and an increase in average customer visits.

The Approach

Blimpie’s pilot Recurrency implementation was 12 weeks long and was launched to a 70-location group of Kahala Brands-owned Restaurants. During that time, Blimpie utilized Mobivity’s Recurrency platform to capture basket-level POS data with Recapture, send personalized mobile offers to loyal customers with Reach, and print targeted in-store communications with Receipt.

The goal of the Recurrency implementation was to increase customer frequency, spend, and loyalty through data-driven insights captured at the point-of-sale (POS) used to activate customers through Mobivity-owned channels.

The early results we’ve seen in working with Mobivity and Recurrency have been exciting, to say the least. We look forward to seeing how the program evolves with more personalized offers based on our customers’ actions, and to increasing our average customer spend in each Blimpie location.

The Results

In the initial weeks of deployment, Blimpie locations utilizing Mobivity’s Recurrency platform saw a direct and attributable lift in customer frequency, and an increase of over 11% in average customer spend on transactions that included a Recurrency delivered offer.
