City Calendar is a profitable and innovative marketing tool, designed to generates new and repeat customers for businesses in local communities.
Since 2017, we have had enormous success in Denmark; we have established 32 new franchises in 4 years – all making a solid profit from year one.
In 2021, we started our first international franchise in Norway. Now we are ready to conquer the rest of the world!
We are searching for Master Franchise Owners who want to expand our concept in your country or region.
How does it work?
City Calendar is a physical marketing tool that generates traffic in local stores and contributes to increased sales. We create local individual designed Advent Calendars with 24 doors. Each door works as a gift voucher to one of our business partners within the local community.
Consumers buy the calendar and visit the business partners to redeem the gift described in the door. That could be something to eat, a physical thing, an experience etc.
The business partner will get unique marketing, lots of visiting consumers and the chance to generate additional sales.
Calendar Case Study
Herning is a vibrant city in Denmark and ”Herningkalenderen” has been a part of City Calendar since 2018. The 24 doors in the 2019-edition contained a lot of different gift vouchers for all kinds of shops, attractions etc. + one charity donation (1,5 € to a local organization).
The price for “Herningkalenderen” was 27€ . The total value of the gift vouchers was 335 €. No discounts, no conditions – only pure gifts!
All copies contained the same gift vouchers and among the gifts there was a burger menu from the local burger joint, a power bank from the electronic store, a ticket to the local art museum, a Christmas decoration from a newly opened craft shop, a ticket from the best soccer team in town etc.
“Herningkalenderen” was printed in 3.000 copies and they were sold out by the end of October
Company Case Study
Jensens Bøfhus is Denmark’s favourite steakhouse. In 2018 Jensens had a calendar door in Aalborgkalenderen with this message: ”Give us this door and we will give you a free steak for lunch”. In one month Jensens received free marketing directly aimed at the 1.900 customers who bought a copy of Aalborgkalenderen. Jensens also got 972 visits in their restaurant – many of them first time visitors. The guests who redeemed their City Calendar -door brought friends and family – and they spent money on additional steaks, drinks, desserts etc.
Being a part of Aalborgkalenderen gave an extra profit of more than 13.000 € in that month. Jensens has been a part of in many different cities since then.
