Lastly, the spotlight on the Cal 1 Card homepage and assistance with printed banners increased our visibility, bringing more customers to the restaurant.”

“Accepting the Cal 1 Card at my business creates another layer of convenience for the students. In the food service business, students are always looking for convenience, if you don’t have it, they go elsewhere.”
