Enhancing customer reach and service
KFC is the biggest fast food chain in Guam with a reach of over 180,000 residents on the island. According to KFC Guam Marketing Director Edgar Caper, investing in a customer loyalty program will enable KFC to get insights from diners’ behavior, including average transaction value, frequency of purchase, and time of transaction.
Caper expounds, “ZAP’s technology brings the ease and relevance both to operations and to the consumers. On the marketing side, the technology is distinct to [ZAP] and highly convenient to manage the database and trigger the consumer with messages of the brand.”
With ZAP as the partner of KFC Guam, the quick-service restaurant will be able to benefit from the closed loop model offered by the leading loyalty program in the Philippines.
ZAP introduced the closed loop model in 2013 wherein merchants have full control of their loyalty programs as they don’t share points with others. With this set-up, brands are able to enhance the consumer experience by improving their marketing and operations resulting to enhanced brand-consumer relationship.
