  9. Proposed Model – Consumer Study NYC Experience Dining Customers Restaurants
  10. Customer Discovery: Learning Hypotheses What we were asking What we learned Small benefits upon each visit will drive new customers and make them loyal FALSE • What would you need to go out of your way to try a new place? • What would you need to go back? • What type of perks would enhance the experience and make you loyal? • How do you envision this working? • Would you pay for these benefits? • People want exclusivity and big paydays even if it means waiting or spending more. • People are more likely to try a new place based on monetary incentives but are more willing to return based on non-monetary experiences. • Consumers want an airline model that rewards loyalty. • Consumers will pay • Two types of consumers at opposite sides of spectrum Budget conscious and up front lock-in fee would drive behavior FALSE • If you were to pay up front for perpetual annual benefits would you be more inclined to go back? • What do you look for in a restaurant? • One time deal versus perpetual deals. • Prize experience on par with food • Will pay for that experience • Want exclusivity at higher end restaurants • Willing to try new restaurants if quality is ensured and special perk

  14. Customer Discovery: Learning Hypotheses What we were asking What we learned Restaurants would be willing to create offerings to increase customer experience in exchange for loyalty TRUE • How do they retain customers? • What type of perks would you be willing to offer recurring customers? • What is the breakdown of your customers segment? • Three types of restaurants - High Traffic - Proximity - Destination • Restaurants already have offerings for their loyal customers • Higher end restaurants aren’t as willing to offer monetary incentives for new customers Restaurants would be willing to use external sites as a channel to advertise and bring in new customers Depends • Have you ever offered discounts, or daily deals through external sites? • How do you feel about the idea of using discounts? • When would you tend to offer these incentives (seasonal/by day or hours)? • How do you currently market or advertise? • All restaurants at some point have tried some sort of discounts • The majority of proximity, higher end restaurants were no longer offering or willing to offer discounts • High traffic, mid-priced restaurants continue to offer promotions for specific times throughout the year • Typically advertise through word of mouth or external sites
