Why was the hockey stadium so successful?
To offer healthier food and drinks the stadium placed
a big focus on
promotion. A new cold display fridge (salad bar) was installed and
although the cost was
a significant outlay it increased the sales of healthy
food and drinks and has paid off! The salad bar no doubt made the healthier
choices very convenient and in a position that was easy to reach and allowed
quick access. The salad bar also made it easier to sell the
healthier choices as they were highly visible and promoted well. They
A new menu board was also installed and focused on promoting the
healthier food and drink choices. Promotion included using Fuel to go, go,
go. posters, which were placed around the stadium, and green apple “shelf
talkers” highlighted the healthier foods and drinks.
