Play with your food!

Welcome to WordChef

WordChef is designed to engage your customers by playing a game in order to motivate them to get to know your establishment better.

The idea is simple, we build a crossword puzzle and fill it with clues that require the user to read and review your menu. You choose the items you want to draw their attention to, we build the clues around your choices and fill the rest of the puzzle with cuisine related clues.

Customers simply scan a unique QR Code which will bring them to a dedicated landing page for your puzzle. They enjoy the interactive puzzle online and submit it upon completion. You can leave it at that or you can entice them further by offering a reward for successfully completing and submitting your puzzle.

It’s more than a game.

WordChef is more than just a game. It is a strategic tool to enable you to provide increased customer service, create a buzz around your menu, achieve increased check averages and return customers.

WordChef is a persuasive design focused on influencing human behavior in a positive way. Getting regular customers to “try something new” can be a challenge. Creating repeat customers is the key to any business’ success. WordChef is one way to meet these challenges.

By using WordChef you can improve awareness of your offerings and see an increase in check averages as the players learn about something new that you offer and decide to try them. You can provide a reason to return to claim a reward. You can also reach out to them in the future with new games, offers or specials.
