Draw a Bigger Crowd and Bigger ROI at Your Bar

When Byron Kirk, General Manager of Old Chicago in Evansville, IN, looked for entertainment options for his restaurant patrons, he sought a solution that appealed to all guests, young and old. Weekly live music is a great draw, but Byron wanted to go beyond the expected to give his customers more.

Byron discovered that Buzztime’s trivia, poker and sports games offer a fun, competitive challenge while creating a great social environment. Parents and children team up to play on his “Kids Eat Free Night,” and Byron makes sure that guests return often with other special Buzztime promotions.

This attracts a large, diverse group of players regularly and, by using digital ads on his Buzztime TVs to promote specials, Byron maintains high customer spending.

Buzztime also helped Byron to create competitions that extend beyond his specific location. With chain-exclusive promotions like the annual “Old Chicago’s Beer Trivia Challenge,” Buzztime players can band together to bring victory and local pride to their favorite location.

Not only does Buzztime provide guests with a fun and engaging reason to come back to Old Chicago Evansville, but it’s helped to increase overall traffic by 10 percent! For Byron, Buzztime has fostered valuable interaction among customers and staff, and his recipe for success has the ingredients to make guests of all ages smile. What are you doing to go beyond?
