How Denny’s used proximity targeting
to drive thousands of in-store visits

Denny’s is in the business of bringing people hearty meals around the clock. To boost awareness for its “Build Your Own Skillet” breakfast campaign and to drive more people to dine at Denny’s, the casual family restaurant chain turned to GroundTruth for its Location and Audience Targeting products.


Our location solutions.

Audience Targeting was used to reach loyal diners with a history of QSR preference.

Proximity Targeting helped Denny’s to reach these loyal customers when they were within close range of their restaurant, and the chain’s competitors.

Store Visitation Lift measurement and consumer surveys were applied to understand the campaign’s direct impact on foot traffic to Denny’s locations.

Real results.
