According to the National Restaurant Association, only 34% of quick service and 37% of fast causal operators see bringing back repeat customers as a challenge this year. However, research increasingly shows that when selecting a limited service restaurant, consumers want a 360-degree experience. Food quality reigns supreme, but when delivered poorly, it leaves a bad taste that keeps customers from coming back. Competition is stiffer than ever before – if your restaurants aren’t executing on the experience your customers expect, they WILL choose another option – and that can have long-lasting impacts on your brand. This infographic shines a light on the growing importance of brand experience on your bottom line
