The 3rd annual Free & Easy Party during the NACUFS conference was enjoyed by all attendees.  It’s provided a great opportunity for Rich’s, Neil Jones Food Company, and King & Prince Seafood to network and meet some of their college supporters.   Along with a terrific meal at Crave, operators enjoyed live music, a caricature artist, and winning thousands and thousands of points!

Omelet House Owner Likes Getting “Name” Brands and Earning Points!

“I have kept purchasing items that have the Reward Code Labels on them anyway even though I have been approached more than once by Sysco Foods wanting me to switch to their house brands.”

Kevin Mills, owner of Omelet House Inc. in Las Vegas Nevada has been a member for the last four years. He recently contacted us and said  “the best thing about this [Foodservice Rewards] is that I’m being rewarded for purchasing things that I already use and I can change to items that have the labels on them if I want to.”

He also mentioned that, “I have kept purchasing items that have the Reward Code Labels on them anyway even though I have been approached more than once by Sysco Foods wanting me to switch to their house brands. …I could have saved a few pennies but I like getting the “name” brand and earning points!”

Kevin mentioned he has used his points for a “scanner so I could scan in the Reward Code Labels”  as well as  “several gadgets and appliances ranging from a fan to night vision binoculars” and now has his sights set on a Garmin GPS system to help him navigate on a European vacation this summer.

 

 

Update – How Operators Enter Reward Codes

While most operators still type in 12-digit Foodservice Rewards codes manually, the number continues to decrease in favor of faster options…

At the end of 2012, operators had five ways to enter codes.  Below are the percentage of codes entered using each method:

  • Type Online = 72%
  • Scan Online = 16%
  • Scan Using Mobile App = 9%
  • Mail In = 2%
  • Type Using Mobile App = 1%

The mobile App launched in January 2012, so we expect the number of operators using this feature to continue to grow.  While typing online is still the dominant method, other online code entry options are growing compared to what was reported for 2011.

Brew City Sweepstakes Winner!

Nebraska retirement community excited to win 100,000 points in Brew City Sweepstakes Promotion!

“Thanks so much for the 100,000 points I received from the Brew City Sweepstakes.  I am SO excited!  You have the very best onion rings!

Our facility houses 67 residents and they love it when I put onion rings on the menu. We also use a variety of your products and have always enjoyed the flavors and the consistency in your products.

I have used the points to purchase a Gateway notebook and a tablet which will, be used in our facility as well as for my (own) use. I often do work from home and use my own computer for this and now I will be able to use these items in both my work environment and home. I can truly tell you I have never won anything before and I can’t express my thanks enough.”

New Print Ad & Foodservice Rewards Communications

Easy Math Campaign for operator engagement and new enrollments…

The “Sticker Shock” ad and associated communications ran for three years.  This year, Marty Malley, Marketing Director, tested four new concepts with operators and the result is the new ad below – Aptly named “EASY MATH”.  The campaign will cut across all operator communications re-enforcing the key messaging:

  1. The program is FREE
  2. It is EASY to enter codes
  3. There are Multiple Sponsors and Brands
  4. There are Thousands of Rewards to Choose From

 

Behind Every Good Man…

Maybe this great woman will win a trip to Napa!

The instant win promotion seems to be on our operator’s minds!  Here’s what Larkin said…

I always try to order products from sponsors that are in Foodservice Rewards so I can get more stickers, especially now that I can win a trip to Napa Valley! I try to save up my points and redeem them once a year to get something nice for my wife.

Staff Collects Points for Sick Co-Worker

The hunt for the golden tickets continues…

When my staff learned about Foodservice Rewards, the hunt for the golden tickets began.  When my cook became ill and was out of work,  the staff asked if we could use our Foodservice Rewards points to get something for her.  They no longer wanted a new radio or cd player…It was their team member they wanted to get a special gift for.  We plan on collecting enough points for a Pandora Bracelet.  However, in the meantime,  we redeemed for a cancer awareness bracelet and she loved it!

Operators LOVE Instant Win Promotion!

Here’s what some operators are saying about the instant win promotion…

I just wanted to say what a great partnership we have between Food Service Rewards and our two stores. I operate both Hilltop and Promenade Red Apple Markets.  Over the past several years our service deli departments have collected Food Service Reward points. We have used the points in many ways. A few examples of what we have used the point for are – donations to community organizations and schools, annual events such as our Easter Egg Hunt and Open House, rewarding employees, and company equipment. I’m really excited to be an Instant Win prize winner!!!  The nice Olympus digital camera I won will be put  to good use.  Thanks again,

Dean Hasegawa, General Manager
Hilltop and Promenade Red Apple Markets, Seattle, WA

When I first started collecting stickers, I went to the website and 2 of the first things I saw were TOMs shoes and TIFFANY jewelry (um, 2 of my favorite things!!) Are you serious?!? I can type in this little code and get stuff?!?   Just when I think it could not get better, you call and tell me we had won an entire case of Krusteaz from your Instant Win promotion. If I can’t have a pair of TOMs or TIFFANY jewelry, double chocolate cake is the next best thing! And I can share that with the rest of the staff.  Thank you for my Instant Win prize!!! And my staff thanks you more!!
