Consumer demand for online food delivery is growing 300 percent faster than dine-in ordering, a trend fast eating into revenue, particularly due to lost alcohol sales. Restaurateurs are realizing they need to adapt fast, many looking to capitalize on the 50 billion-dollar US events market. People are increasingly searching for new experiences and events. Ticketbud is partnering with restaurants to create pre-purchased dining packages for events; from watch parties to unique dining experiences.
Across the hospitality industry, from bars, family restaurants to fine dining, operators are looking to event dining to give people a reason to leave the house. Ticketbud has been working with Hooters on their nation-wide multi-location event campaigns, designed to bring diners in for special events such as UFC watch nights and fantasy football. Ticketbud makes it easy for customers to purchase event dining packages on mobile optimized event pages. This strategy has been a game changer for Hooters' dine-in revenue.
