Waze will no longer serve Ads starting September 1, 2023.

We will wind down the current Waze Ads product and advertisers will have the opportunity to keep existing campaigns running through August 31, 2023.

We are already working to transition Waze Ads to Google Ads technology and look forward to helping advance your business objectives through our new Waze Ads product soon.

During this transition, we have an alternative solution you may already be familiar with: Performance Max for Store Goals (PMax). This Google campaign uses AI to maximize your in-store visits and sales by bringing geo formats across Search, Display, GMail, Google Maps, and YouTube into a single product. For questions on PMax, you can contact your existing Google channel of support or reach out to Google Support home page. You can also check out our Waze Support Hub if you have any Waze Ads questions.


Restaurant strategies that are spicing up the new dining experience

While the pandemic initially caused havoc for most restaurant brands, it also spurred the industry to reinvent itself. Forced to re-imagine everything from menu items to delivery methods to technological advances, restaurants adapted and pivoted—and ultimately found a “next normal” that is leading to success.

This report examines the four trends that are likely to continue as restaurants position themselves to accommodate an influx of invigorated diners. After reading this playbook, you will understand the trends that are driving diners to in-person experiences—and be able to apply them to your business—including:

  • Reimagining the restaurant footprint to offer more flexible formats that meet the various needs of customers.
  • Utilizing technology differently to offer personalization, provide payment options, ease staffing shortages, and revitalize restaurant functions.
  • Promoting new perks for loyalty programs to acknowledge and reward repeat customers.
  • Creative messaging that reaches consumers in the moment of decision-making and creates awareness among all types of customers in your radius.
