The Boelter Companies, Inc., one of the nation's leading foodservice design, equipment and supply companies, announced the launch of Boelter Blue, a custom mobile app that simplifies restaurant marketing. The affordable app, designed to help independent restaurants drive customer engagement and traffic, builds on mobile application technology Boelter gained when it acquired Anchor 5 Digital last year. Boelter will introduce the app at next week's Midwest Foodservice Expo.

Easy-to-use app marries Boelter's foodservice expertise with the latest in mobile marketing features to drive customer engagement and restaurant traffic.

"We're not just providing our customers digital marketing technology, but also decades of Boelter foodservice expertise," says Eric Boelter, president of the Boelter Companies. "With Boelter Blue, we've made it easy for restaurants to reach and engage customers so they can focus on what they do best—preparing great food and entertaining guests."

The app includes an easy-to-navigate dashboard so restaurants can measure real time results and trends to see how they're doing.

"What sets this apart is our service extends well beyond launching the app," says Dan Holen, co-founder, Boelter Blue. "To help our customers stay top-of-mind, it's important we help them deliver the right marketing content, at the right time, to further entice customers through the doors."

According to the National Restaurant Association, nearly a third of consumers say technology influences their decision on where to dine out or order delivery/take-out. It's certainly made a difference for some of Boelter Blue's initial users.

For Champps Americana in Brookfield, Wisconsin, "The Boelter Blue app, along with the service and support Boelter provides, is one of the best marketing decisions we have ever made," says General Manager Rob Rajala. "We can reach more than 1,600 of our best customers any time directly through their mobile device, allowing us to drive business when needed and speak directly to the people who want to hear from us most."
