Best Practice – Websites Feature Foodservice Rewards

Some excellent examples of how some sponsors are leveraging Foodservice Rewards participation on their websites…

To leverage Foodservice Rewards, we recommend that sponsors communicate their participation across their marketing and sales tools.  Below are a few additional website examples from Rich’s, Unilever, Icelandic, and Pierce.

MVO – Most Valuable Operator

Pareto Principle holds true with Foodservice Rewards…

“The Pareto Principle – For many events, roughly 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes.” (Source: Wikipedia)
In Foodservice Rewards, 20% of the operators purchase 80% of our sponsor’s cases.  These high volume MOST VALUABLE OPERATORS (MVO’s) should be protected and appreciated by the manufacturers whose cases they buy.   The Foodservice Rewards team recommends:
  1. Thank them for their business
  2. Provide them with special privileges
  3. Track their purchases (red flags/green flags)
  4. Share the information with your sales teams
Pierce reviewed their experience with tracking MVO’s at the September sponsor meeting.  Here’s a few additional communication examples from Sara Lee and Nestle’ Professional Canada.

Pierce hosted Foodservice Rewards in their booth at Pizza Expo March 13-15th in Las Vegas.  Last year, the event had over 6,400 attendees.   The Pierce/Foodservice Rewards partnership drove traffic to the Pierce booth and new enrollments for Foodservice Rewards.  A pre-show eblast with details was delivered to both existing Foodservice Rewards members and to operators from the Pierce 2011 Pizza Expo lead list.  Below is the sign that promoted the excitement on the show floor and a picture of the Foodservice Rewards area of the Pierce booth.
