Wienerschnitzel is putting the petal to the medal focusing on speed, literally to rev up sales, garner new customers, and reignite it brand. Action speaks louder than words and entering partnerships with Joe Gibbs Racing Motocross, Toyota, 4 Wheel Parts, and Smittybit all fast action brands connected to motocross and auto automotive racing is proof positive Wienerschnitzel is focusing on Fast-Food Fans.
John Ross Galardi, known as J.R. and son of the late founder John Galardi stated "Sixty-six percent of all motocross fans eat fast food more than three times a week. That's our demographic right there. It would be crazy not to tap into that,". Clearly Wienerschnitzel has been stuck in a store count growth rut. Is motocross and auto automotive the vehicle for building top line sales and bottom line profits?
A Millennial himself J.R. Galardi understands that millennials are migrating from fast-food to convenience stores. Recapturing consumer’s attention is key to building top line sales and bottom line profits for Wienerschnitzel.
In fact, convenience stores are almost twice as important to millennials (18 to 34) as fast-casual restaurants, "Millennials are cheap--they're no different from anyone else," according to Harry Balzer Chief Food Industry Analyst at NPD.
Convenience stores accounted for 11.1% of millennial food and beverage stops in 2014, compared to 7.7% in 2006. By comparison, fast-casual accounted for 6.1% in 2014 vs. 3.1% in 2006, according to Balzer.
