Checker’s & Rally’s hosts multiple vendor summits quarterly. Sessions include market trend tours, collaborative brainstorming, concept development and prototype development to build out the LTO pipeline.
Due to COVID travel and social distancing restrictions, the Checker’s team tasked CSSI with executing a virtual innovation session to ideate around new burger and sandwich concepts.
Utilizing the Ferocious Innovation™ model, CSSI presented consumer data, trends, insights, and a virtual market trend tour for inspiration, as a group we collaborated and ideated to identify menu gaps and opportunity spaces.
Facilitate and lead a 2-day virtual ideation session, collaborating and thought sharing with several partnering manufactures and cross functional Checker’s brand team members. Cultivate and curate ideas that are ready for consumer screeners.
Featuring several manufacture’s capabilities and extended teams, breakout groups developed 30+ concepts that moved forward into consumer screeners. From there, several items have risen to the top and are slated for national test in 2021. One being the launch of Mother Cruncher Sandwich and it’s line extensions.
