Winning Casual Dining with Today’s Teens

Olive Garden teamed up with C+R Research’s YouthBeat® analytics group to understand what is driving special occasion dining options for today’s teens. Utilizing their language (social media, photos, videos and imagery) and trending YouthBeat® data from when Millennials were teens, Olive Garden sought out to understand what drives their restaurant selections. They were also able to understand how these young consumers are different – and similar – and to formulate strategies for how to best serve them.

We’ll explore our multi-method design, consisting of:

  • YouthBeat® syndicated data foundation;
  • custom online qualitative discussion board;
  • custom special occasion dining survey; and
  • topics exploring Olive Garden’s role in teen casual dining habits.

  • Identify cultural shifts that drive youth purchase behavior today in a different way from a generation ago;
  • know what content pitfalls to avoid, to prevent turning off young people; and
  • take hints from brands that are doing it right with young people today.
