Compelling news and marketplace value proposition in the palm of restaurateurs' hands

A growing number of restaurateurs, chain executives and independent operators are accessing Kandessa's management-oriented information services and marketplace solutions. Kandessa's own observations and research concludes the reasons for its hyper-accelerated readership growth:

  • Chain restaurant execs, managers and independent owners want a sustainable format for receiving their news and information services, not volumes of paper.
  • Industry leaders want easy, quick access to trade news, not double or triple registration processes as has been the case in the past.
  • Marketers to the restaurant industry want digital lead generation, not numbers or commoditized ads. Because only 20 percent of existing B2B markers are satisfied with their ad campaigns, according to industry authority Corporate Visions, more of them are looking for innovative solutions to break the status quo and negative trends. Already, more than third of 80 percent not completely satisfied blame poor B2B content for their woes.

"We're humbled by our annual 100% growth rate in readership," adds Zambrano. "And we're committed to offering a truly customized, unique readership experience, that is both informative and social, to inspire and support industry leaders."

By integrating marketing and restaurant support services and rolling out +social next month, Kandessa looks forward to be the marketing and media partner of choice. The Eatery Pulse digital edition on the Restaurant News App has been reset to mid-May.
