Once upon a time, cafés and restaurants thought they didn’t need to offer free Wi-Fi, but then came the digital age. Customers began to want and need different things from the dining experience and social Wi-Fi was a big part of it. Here's how Atlanta Bread Company (ABC) harnessed the power of providing free Wi-Fi to expand their local chain into a nationwide success and how your restaurant or coffee house can, too.
Creating a Work-Friendly Environment
Since 1993, the Atlanta-based sandwich shop knew it was something special. The ABC was a welcoming little café that paid attention to what customers wanted. As more people came in to work as well as eat, they started offering free Wi-Fi to give them what they wanted and keep them coming back. Unfortunately, slow, unreliable connections threatened their success, and they wanted something better.
Providing a Better Solution
They turned to us at Bloom Intelligence to see if things could improve. Not only did they get a faster, more secure and extremely reliable Wi-Fi service, but they were able to up their game with:
- Landing pages featuring real-time promotions
- Email capture that grew their customer database
- Digital marketing campaigns that gave valuable insights and results
Gaining Momentum and Success
The local results were so phenomenal that ABC decided to offer quality service from Bloom Intelligence to all their franchises across the nation. In addition to increased sales across the board, ABC also saw these results:
- 50 percent increase in Wi-Fi speed
- 5,000+ customer reviews
- 21,000+ customer email addresses collected
Serving up spectacular sandwiches and tending to telecommuters really paid off. They now boast a chain of corporate and franchise bakery-café locations throughout the U.S.
