Modiv Media and SUBWAY® to Serve Seattle with Mobile Promotions

'My SUBWAY Mobile' Program to Make Its First Seattle Play at Seahawks Game on Oct. 21

BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Modiv Media Inc., a leader in retail interactive media delivery solutions, and the SUBWAY® restaurant chain, the world's largest submarine sandwich franchise, today announced 345 SUBWAY® franchises in the Seattle-Tacoma area will be offering mobile promotions and offers to their customers. Modiv Media worked with the SUBWAY Franchisee Advertising Fund Trust (SFAFT) to develop the mobile promotions campaign called "My SUBWAY Mobile," which is being launched at the Seattle Seahawks' home game against the St. Louis Rams on Sunday (Oct. 21).

About 70,000 football stadium spectators at Seattle's Qwest Field will have a chance to win a signed Seahawks helmet when they text in a keyword using their mobile phone. The jumbotron at Qwest Field will announce the signed memorabilia competition and the specific keyword to text in. All entries will be enrolled in the free "My SUBWAY Mobile" club and will receive a free six-inch SUBWAY sandwich with the purchase of another six-inch sub at participating SUBWAY stores. Local Seattle-area residents also now may enter the My SUBWAY Mobile program by texting in "sub018" to 35562.

"Because Seattle is a tech-friendly city, SUBWAY wanted to be more in sync with innovative technology best practices instead of just traditional marketing activities that produce traditional results," said Seattle-Tacoma SUBWAY Marketing Board Chair, Paul Armour. "With My SUBWAY Mobile, we are giving our customers an easier method to redeem their paperless coupons and offer them more rewards and real-time alerts. By better understanding our customers' preferences and buying behaviors, including when they eat, what combination meals they like, etc., we could drive more traffic into specific restaurant locations and reward loyal customers."

The Modiv Mobile service is the heart of the My SUBWAY Mobile program, which is currently available in more than 100 SUBWAY franchises in Buffalo, New York. Modiv Mobile influences brand shopping decisions by delivering relevant information and promotions to on-the-go shoppers' mobile phones via opt-in campaigns and personalized offers.

"With Modiv Mobile, quick-service restaurants like SUBWAY can influence their on-the-go customers' purchasing decisions by reaching them with the right information at the right time," said Robert Wesley, president and CEO of Modiv Media. "Consumer-accepted mobile promotions satisfy not only the needs of retailers looking to motivate their customers on what and when to buy but also the patrons receiving the relevant and real-time offers."
