Yellow Pages' new survey reveals Canadians' behaviour when it comes to choosing a restaurant

TORONTO - According to a recent survey that ran across Canada by Yellow Pages, a leading digital media and marketing solutions company, and the independent research firm BIP, 47% of Canadians go with what their stomach is asking for when it comes to choosing what or where to eat, as compared to their brain (26%) or their heart (19%). Contrary to that, when Canadians are asked about what best describes how they choose a restaurant, more than half of them (52%) say that they simply go to their favourite restaurant, which is a decision coming from the heart. This demonstrates that our emotions, minds and bodies are often at odds when a decision needs to be made about what and where to eat.

Based on this idea, Yellow Pages has launched a creative, new advertising campaign for YP Dine, its free mobile application dedicated to the restaurant and dining sector. To present the YP Dine app, the campaign gives the spotlight to three animated characters, the heart, the brain and the stomach, that can't seem to make dining decisions due to their different personalities, but all agree that YP Dine is the smart and easy solution to the famous question "What do I want to eat today?".
"YP Dine helps Canadians discover, find, interact and transact with small businesses," said Paul Brousseau, Vice-President, Brand Communications at Yellow Pages. "YP Dine is designed to house all our dining needs in one easy-to-use app, while delivering a fun and useful experience with top-of-the-line functionalities."
The survey also revealed that reviews are highly taken into consideration in the decision making process when booking a table or ordering-in from a restaurant. In fact, 41% of Canadians consider recommendations from friends, family or colleagues as a key element in their decision, while 27% focus on restaurants with good reviews.
Available on iOS and Android, the YP Dine app can help even the most indecisive people choose where and what to eat. Users can access curated lists, read restaurant and food reviews, book a table or order-in directly from the app.
The digital advertising campaign will feature digital banners, social media promotion, cinema pre-show, a LaPresse+ take-over and video ads, and will run until December in Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton and Quebec City. New videos, GIFs and banners will be featured throughout the campaign's roll-out.
