Dining 2.0: QSR Goes Omnichannel

Digital channels represent the biggest change to how Americans eat since the invention of fast food itself. Mobile app advance ordering is turning every QSR into a take-out business, while app-based delivery turns every dine-out venue into a QSR competitor for convenience. Local search and review apps, geo-targeted advertising, mobile messaging and delivery services have radically expanded the opportunity for accessing customers. But this omnichannel world has also expanded the competitive set for hungry consumers on any given evening.

How are venerable QSR brands navigating these new blurred the lines among dining categories? How are they rethinking the consumer decision process, recalibrating media spend, responding to challenger brands for attention?

MediaPost's Marketing QSR drills into the best practices, new consumer journeys and emerging opportunities for QSR brands helping to build Eating 2.0.

Keynote: Delivering on the Dunkin’ Brand Promise
In the QSR business, the talk is always about traffic, but the word “traffic” is cold and somewhat negative.  These are guests.  How do we invite them in, make them feel at home and want to return?  And use data to connect.  The word data is rigid, techy and puts people on their guard.  It’s not about manipulating data but striving to deliver personalization. This keynote will focus on connecting with consumers in the modern world to not only showcase products, but also show how Dunkin’ demonstrates its brand promise in its marketing.
2:00 PM
Panel: The DTC Effect: Loyalty, Social and the New Customer Relationship
Brands and cusotmers now have unprecedented access to one another, but what are marketers doing to make the mos tof it? From beefing up loysalty programs and email promotions, to managing reputation, content and fandom via social channels, we ask the CRM and social media masters to share their winning ways. Can QSR customers really become fans?
