  • The value of metaverse-related assets such as NFTs and cryptocurrencies has plummeted, implying that attracting interest in the current climate may be more difficult.
  •  To be assessed, custom sandwiches must be submitted by May 22. From May 31 to June 3, the winning proposal will be delivered to the first 100 individuals who purchase it, according to Jimmy John’s.
  • Wendy’s sponsored a Wendyverse campaign in March, where customers could tour a virtual restaurant through Horizon Worlds, Meta’s virtual-reality platform. According to Meta officials, it reached 52 million users.

Jimmy John’s and Pizza Hut’s first explorations into the metaverse go beyond merely running a virtual activation by offering concrete incentives for customers to visit. Over the last year, as the metaverse has become an industry buzzword, marketing activities have grown, but also muddied.

Winning Proposal Will Be Delivered To The First 100 Individuals

At the same time, the value of metaverse-related assets such as NFTs and cryptocurrencies has plummeted, implying that attracting interest in the current climate may be more difficult. Free pizza for a year or a personalized sandwich order added to the menu for a limited time could help skeptics change their minds. Setting up shop online also provides advantages that are more difficult to achieve in real life.

Users can add hidden ingredients like cookies to the Jimmy John’s Meat Sandwiches without being judged by their other diners. Exclusive promo codes and Jimmy John’s items are also available at the Decentraland restaurant. To be assessed, custom sandwiches must be submitted by May 22. From May 31 to June 3, the winning proposal will be delivered to the first 100 individuals who purchase it, according to Jimmy John’s.

With ComplexLand, a commerce-focused experience in its third year, Pizza Hut is banking on the buzz surrounding an existing metaverse event. This year’s free online gathering, hosted by Complex, will allow for first-person exploration and will include an NFT gallery curated by Lil Miquela, a virtual influencer. Pizza Hut has placed their delivery cars and cyberpunk-inspired drivers in various areas across the room, simulating how a business can sell itself at a real-life pop-up or festival.

Gen Zers Spend Twice As Much Time Socializing In The Metaverse

Recent restaurant-related metaverse activations have been well received. Wendy’s sponsored a Wendyverse campaign in March, where customers could tour a virtual restaurant through Horizon Worlds, Meta’s virtual-reality platform. According to Meta officials, it reached 52 million users.

The intended audience is clear, even as metaverse methods are still being smoothed out. Pizza Hut referenced a recent survey by Vice Media Group and Razorfish, which indicated that Gen Zers spend twice as much time socializing in the metaverse as they do in real life.
