SANDPOINT, IDAHO, October 6, 2020 – As stay-at-home life continues in many parts of the country, Litehouse, Inc., a 100% employee-owned company and the No. 1 Refrigerated Salad Dressing (RSD) brand in the U.S., is lifting spirits and delivering family night inspiration throughout the month of October during its national “Do Family Night Right” promotion. Litehouse consumer insights revealed that while 89% of parents agree that the silver lining to stay-at-home restrictions is getting to spend more time with their families, 56% of parents said they are running out of new ideas for family night.
To provide busy parents with new ways to make family night fun, Litehouse has partnered with Redbox®, America’s destination for new-release movies and entertainment, for an online and in-store campaign that will drive consumers to retail with scratch-to-win game pieces via neck hangers on select Litehouse products. At participating grocery retailers, consumers will have a 1 in 2 chance to win a free Redbox® movie night for a 1-day movie rental at the box or on demand. The partnership brings together the two most popular ingredients for family fun, as 8 in 10 consumers report watching movies or eating dinner together during family night.2
The promotion is also supported by an online resource center with downloadable recipes and family night ideas with new activities launched every Thursday in October. Consumers can also enter a sweepstakes for a chance to win family-friendly kits containing 25 days of activities, with weekly themes ranging from sports to superheroes, featuring arts and crafts supplies, activity sheets, free Redbox® movie nights and Litehouse 20 oz. Homestyle Ranch dressing and other Litehouse family favorites.
“Our insights indicate that over 50% of families eat dinner together at least six nights a week, so every night is an opportunity for families to reconnect,” said Camile Balfanz, senior brand manager at Litehouse. “As families continue to spend more time at home and indoors this fall, the promotion will make Litehouse products and family-friendly activities more accessible and help make life a little brighter for families looking to create meaningful memories.”
Litehouse products recently earned the “Family Tested Family Approved” award seal, so consumers can trust that its line of creamy dressings, including 20 oz. family size dressings in an easy-to-use squeeze bottle and 13 oz. dressing jars, have been tested by families, for families and deliver on consumer expectations and standards.
The in-store campaign will include promotional displays, Redbox® scratch-to-win game pieces and discounted pricing on Litehouse dressings, dips and caramel and will be supported online with digital advertising, social media and influencers to increase brand awareness and drive retail sales.
Litehouse dressings are available in the refrigerated produce department at grocery retailers nationwide in an assortment of sizes and formats, including convenient family size squeeze bottles, dip tubs and glass jars, and pair well with family night favorites like pizza, salad and tacos.
