Brands focus their efforts on providing convenient food services for students

Implications - Foodie brands are creating and seeking new methods to reach the Gen Z and Millennial demographics through convenient, affordable and desirable meal options and services. Targeting students with active appetites due to academic stress and social gatherings, new services are carving their place in the lives of college and university students. This shows maximization of the growth cycle of a demographic, and introduces a new opportunity with the difficult-to-reach youth generation.
Workshop Question - How well is your brand tailoring to the unique needs of students? If that were your core target market, how would you adapt your offering to suit this demographic?
