Limited Time Offers

You are here
Catalyst Sales Building

Enhance your restaurant marketing with limited time offer campaigns. Effective limited time offer campaigns will not only help you cross-utilize products and reduce inventory in the kitchen, but limited time offer campaigns can be designed to offer menu items that are seasonal or reflect special events. 

Why Limited-Time Offers (LTOs)?

  • Introduce on-trend and seasonal offerings, exclusively available from Gordon Food Service
  • Test market new recipes
  • Cross-utilize products and reduce inventory
  • Respond proactively to market conditions

Make Limited Time Offers Special

Limited-time offers appeal to a broad demographic and are particularly popular with younger consumers, according to a 2014 survey by Chicago-based research firm Technomic Inc. Nearly half (48 percent) of consumers said they tried a limited-time-offer menu item in the past month, and more than three in 10 of those ages 18 to 44 ordered one in the past week.
