About Rosso Verde

Rosso Verde serves up pizzas, pasta, and salad made from traditional family recipes. Rosso Verde prides itself on being the neighborhood pizzeria of choice, offering a family-friendly, casual dining experience with hearty home-style food.

David was looking for a way to stand out. Within Utica, New York, there are more than 10 pizzerias and other food options. Rosso Verde needed a way to retain its customers and distinguish itself from its competitors. David decided to start offering loyalty rewards to customers with CandyBar.

The CandyBar Effect: Rewards for Regulars

Rosso Verde used CandyBar to set up a customer loyalty program. Customers would get $5 off their next purchase after collecting 5 stamps.

Customers loved Rosso Verde’s loyalty program, and responded warmly:

  • Strong Take-up: More than 2,800 customers enrolled in Rosso Verde’s loyalty program in just 10 months
  • High Engagement: 99% of customers made five or more store visits and have earned a reward!
  • Super Fans: One customer has 57 store visits, visiting Rosso Verde more than once every week!

Customer Outreach Campaigns

During the pandemic in 2020, Rosso Verde shifted to providing deliveries and take-aways.

To stay in touch with regulars, the team made use of CandyBar’s Promo Messages features. The team ran over 50 promotional text message campaigns to customers, with offers ranging from $5 off specials to a special Football Sunday offer. Over 40,000 such offers were sent out.

The best part about CandyBar: the team is flexible. They never told me it could not be done, but instead, let me work directly with the engineers to get the messages out.
