Make every gameday more delicious.
When it comes to creating a great gameday experience for Badger fans, you know the bar of expectations is always being raised - by you, and by them.
Food is an integral part of that experience, and year after year, the expectations are on you to develop more concessions options and to make sure fans know about them.
hankr has worked with UW Athletics and Levy to outline a solution that addresses three core goals related to your guests' concessions experience.
Increase awareness and satisfaction of the concessions options inside the Kohl Center.
Improve the Kohl Center's reputation as an event day dining destination.
Deliver greater value to fans using the Badger Gameday app to enhance their experience.
What's the problem?
Ever seen a McDonald's ad that doesn't show food? Visual marketing is proven to drive behavior for restaurants, but all existing concessions resources for fans - even for some of the newest venues - are all about places, and are mostly words.
It's nearly impossible to discover what's new and different without literally walking around the arena.
For most fans, that's not an option.
Our solution? Food first.
See pulled pork.
Sell pulled pork.
hankr's turn-key platform for visual, food-first search makes it easy for fans to find something they crave, and easy for you to reach fans in a compelling, motivating way. When people see what they can buy, they buy more.
"This makes me so hungry!"
hankr's visual, food-first website and app have been used over 150,000 times to find food from local restaurants, and our users have told us how much better it is for discovering great meals.
This same platform is now available to dining destinations, districts, and venues.
