Use mobile research to spy on competitors.

That’s why the nation’s largest pizza chain chose MFour.

On a roll for the past three quarters, the company was posting revenue growth at 20%, while the competition was flat. They saw an opening to enter the lunch market. And needed data fast.


We tracked every consumer who hit their competition’s location during lunch.

Read the case study



Lunch behavior needs to be studied over time. So, they chose a diary—or longitudinal—study. After 30 days, the team would determine if the lunch market was viable and how to approach it.

Surveys On The Go® locates consumers in real time.

A survey was triggered as people left a competitor restaurant. The data was real-time and included pictures and video of their experiences during lunchtime.

Target: Consumers who visit (4+ times) competitor QSR locations for lunch in the past 60 days




Schedules drive most lunch decisions. Consumers with little time eat alone at the closest, fastest, and on-budget location. Those with more flexible schedules are more likely to eat with others and at a restaurant.

We found 76% of lunch buyers just didn’t want to eat at a restaurant.

This aligned perfectly with the pizza chain’s quick-serve strategy. Working with their creative agency, they developed an audience-specific market positioning strategy for the lunch space.

It hit the mark. They effectively increased market share.
