Promotion Ideas

Sometimes all it takes to boost your revenue stream is a well-timed, well-targeted promotion.

Here are a few ideas to get you started:

Offer to-go snack mixes. Pour two scoops of Snack Mix made with HERSHEY’S Milk Chocolate Chips and REESE’S Mini PIECES Candy into a cup or a bag, and add raisins or pretzels for a sweet-and-salty mix. Consider a two-for-one deal during prime study hours with a clever name like “The Study Buddy Special.”

Create an all-campus promotion in which students and teachers can reward one another by gifting HERSHEY’S treats and snacks.

Embrace social media to keep your students excited about–and buying–the latest sweets, treats and savory delights available across campus. Announce your latest treat and ask your students to share words that describe your latest HERSHEY’S branded menu offering.

Take advantage of “sweet” holidays and events. Think: chocolate treats for Valentine’s Day, snack boxes for college sports tailgate parties and study sessions, and sundae toppings bars during the early-summer months.
