Business Builders: Unique Ideas
Because appetizers are often impulse purchases, Jonathan Cowan boosted app sales by turning “jalapeño poppers” into an order-boosting attention-getter. Now, his team suggestively sells four breaded peppers, side by side, as “Jalapeño Popper Roulette.” The twist? Three of the visually identical peppers offer normal heat, while the fourth (located randomly) offers an exceptionally spicy surprise!

Pizza e Vino!
During the pandemic, “prepare it yourself” restaurant meals have become a popular form of home entertainment. Restaurateur Mike Bausch found a way to further elevate his customers’ home pizza making experience (and boost sales) by adding bottles of wine to his pizza kits! BRAVO!

Touchless QR Menus
While COVID remains a concern, many consumers still prefer avoiding shared surfaces, including door handles, tabletops, restrooms, and even printed menus. To provide guests with a touchless menu option, Guantonios Wood Fired Pizza created a digital QR code which, when scanned, pulls up a digital version of their menu onto guest smartphones!
