Giovanni’s Frozen Pizza is partnering with OneScreenNorth ,a digital services company out of Brainerd, Mn. To launch a digital ad service for local bars, grills, taverns, brewpubs, and restaurants in the Midwest.
Bar owners will be able to plug a “digital device” into an xtra HDMI input on any one of their TVs and begin earning revenue off the ads that are played on the system. There is no cost to the bar owner for this device.
Similar to ads on google, facebook, youtube, and other ad platforms, this system will be an Ad auction.
Giovanni’s will be able to install and service this system. Giovanni’s will work with its partner to enable local content to be shown as well. A local bar can display their specials, hours of operation, or any other information. This system will also allow local & regional advertisers to place ads on the bar’s TV.
“It’s a win win” says Thor Thorson of Giovanni’s Frozen Pizza. “A local business that would like to talk to the bar’s customers will have the ability to do so. The local business gets to place a nice digital, colorful ad in front of the bar’s customers , and the bar owner gets paid for showing the ad!”
This service was started as a response to the Covid 19 shutdowns and their unequal negative impact on owners of Bars and restaurants throughout Minnesota. It may never be business as usual again but at least bars will have one more revenue stream to help pay the bills.
If you or someone you know owns a bar, please have them go to onescreennorth.com and sign up to be part of this incredible network launching in the Spring . You can also call or email Giovanni’s directly if you would like. 218.829.8520 or [email protected] We’re building an internet of screens in Minnesota and the Midwest and we would love to have your bar be one of them on the cutting edge. It’s just all part of Giovanni’s Frozen Pizza’s commitment to helping bar owners succeed.
