Hickory Tavern is offering a digital scratch-off game to connect with fans in a dramatically changing environment. Now through December 31st, eligible guests, future guests, and fans alike can play the Hickory Tavern Holiday Sweepstakes to earn rewards. Winning is easy, by simply playing a digital scratch-off game which then will reveal a prize.

“We are adapting our technology and strategies to meet the needs of the consumer in the ever-changing 2020 environment. Contactless options and more flexible strategies are important now more than ever, and we wanted to provide a momentary spurt of relief and excitement to consumers during 2020,” states Paul Baldasaro, CEO and President.

Everyone is an instant winner and prizes can be redeemed now through the end of January, in-store or online. In addition to weekly instant win prizes, guests are entered into a sweepstakes for drawing prizes including a Coca-Cola mountain bike, Coca-Cola dart board, Coca-Cola popcorn machine, tent, corn hole board, cooler, gift cards and more – all things to enjoy at home or in the outdoors. Fans can earn additional sweepstakes entries by sharing their experience on social media.

“An instant win gaming element was important in the development process, as we want fans to feel excitement and to think of Hickory Tavern for their next purchase. Additionally, it is important for fans to feel the convenience of using the reward now vs. later and allowing the offer to be redeemed both in-store and online, states Tammy Lucich, Director of Marketing and Beverage. “By integrating a digital reward element with our new loyalty platform, this allows us the flexibility to open rewards up to guests both dining-in and online for to-go, which is a necessary strategy as we navigate into 2021,” states Lucich.
