What’s driving food orders? #TikTok has managed to establish a huge community of food lovers who share their culinary experiences. As the study shows, this translates to real dining visits. And foodies aren’t shy to go the extra mile either. http://restaurantmarketing.mghus.com/blog/tiktoks-major-influence-on-todays-dining-behavior

Some 30% said they travelled longer than usual to visit a #TikTok-recommended restaurant while 28% were willing to fork out slightly more to pay for their dining experiences.

This presents food app marketers and restaurants with a unique opportunity to reach a highly committed foodie audience. A single review on a popular #TikTok channel can boost restaurant visits.

But the driving force behind restaurant visits is still the appetising-looking food for the majority (72%) of #TikTok users. 42% of users showed up to taste a unique menu item, while 42% went because the place looked fun.
