A rival of PIZZA Hut offers a monthly benefits program that can put dinner on the table for just a few dollars.
At the beginning of each month, Blaze Pizza announces a new delicious flavor starting at $8.99.
The California-based restaurant chain made the announcement in a press release on June 1, saying the new offerings would begin immediately.
Beginning this month, consumers can get an 11-inch Pepperoni Lover Pizza for just $8.99 thanks to the What’s Hot benefits program.
The cake consists of 32 slices of delicious hot peppers layered on top of mozzarella cheese and the iconic tomato sauce.
“Blaze’s monthly benefits program ‘What’s Hot’ marks the beginning of our commitment to guests to offer fresh and quality menu items at everyday affordable prices,” said Beto Guajardo, CEO of Blaze Pizza.
“We know what our guests love, so we want to offer their favorites a special discount every month.”
Blaze Pizza aims to offer affordable options while encouraging consumers to try new items on its extensive menu.
The company also selects the monthly offering based on seasonality.
For example, the chain is adding a Hawaiian pizza to the menu next month to celebrate summer with sweet pineapple and savory ham.
The brand updates the menu every month on its website and social media pages.
Consumers can save even more by taking advantage of a new rewards program at Panda Express.
The new feature, Panda Rewards, is the company’s first points-based national rewards program, Panda Express said in a statement.
“Sharing happiness is an important value at Panda and we are excited to launch our first rewards program nationwide as a heartfelt expression of gratitude to our loyal guests for their continued support over the years,” said Andrea Cherng, Chief Brand Officer of the company in a statement.
“We look forward to engaging our guests on a playful and meaningful journey of happiness while collecting unique prizes of exceptional value every time they dine at Panda.”
If customers choose to become a member, they must download the free Panda Express mobile app or become a member online at PandaRewards.com.
All members receive a welcome gift of 25 percent off their next order, which means fans can get $10 off their next teriyaki chicken purchase.
Joining the rewards program also gives you access to exclusive offers throughout the year.
OTHER REWARDS PROGRAMS
Panda Express is just one of many introducing rewards programs to increase repeat purchases.
Earlier in the year, Jimmy John’s and Chipotle also brought new and improved rewards programs to their customers.
At the heart of the offering were the store’s apps, which added gamification to purchases and increased the likelihood that a consumer would pull out their phone to place an order.
Even luxury salad chain Sweetgreen has launched a loyalty program.
The health-focused food brand uniquely offered both a free and paid subscription version to drive higher sales.
Panera Bread also strives to make online shopping easier and more convenient for shoppers.
The restaurant has now added a brand new drive-thru pickup option when ordering online or through the app.
The MyPanera Guest Loyalty Program was one of the earliest memberships of its kind in the industry when it launched in 2010.
It grew quickly and became one of the largest rewards programs with almost 48 million members.
Perks include discounts on next purchases, personalized digital ordering experiences, programs like Unlimited Sip Club, surprise offers, and early access to new menu items.
