8. Where Do Chick-fil-A Customers Go on Sundays?
The age-old question lives on: should Chick-fil-A open its doors on Sunday? Chick-fil-A is one of the most in-demand fast food chicken restaurants in the nation. But what happens when the beloved chicken chain closes every Sunday? It still sees its fair share of fast food visits on Sundays, as some Chick-fil-A customers still mistakenly visit while it’s closed, but where else do they go? Read our full blog post here to find out where the chicken chain’s customers eat every Sunday. As always, we are pleased to re-highlight brand foot traffic analysis posts like this one. Consumer behavior offline is key to understanding a brand’s performance, opportunities, and challenges.
7. Four Ways to Use Foot Traffic Data for Commercial Real Estate Market Research
The seventh spot in our top 10 blog posts list goes to an informative blog post written by Gravy founder and CEO Jeff White. He lists the ways that location intelligence can add value in the commercial real estate (CRE) industry. The CRE industry looks completely different than it did just a few years ago, and location intelligence can help researchers navigate our post-pandemic society within CRE. As Americans moved, stores closed their doors, and remote work boomed, how can CRE professionals keep up with the changes that happened over the last few years? Read the full post here for more.
6. What’s in a Food Desert? Using Location Intelligence to Analyze Place Visits in Washington, D.C.
And our last blog post for part one of our top 10 blog posts list is all about food deserts. Location intelligence can be used in many powerful ways, and this food desert project was a fascinating one. By studying consumer behavior, travel distance, and more, Gravy was able to understand food deserts in the District of Columbia. Determining the availability of specific goods in an area is an important application of location intelligence. Not only did our project verify the findings of an earlier study on food deserts, but it helped us make some key conclusions about food deserts and unlock another invaluable way to use location intelligence for societal good.
