The easy part is making them fall in love with your food. However, we need to get them to visit your place for that to happen.
Here are a few fun and efficient ways to get more customers in your restaurant in order for you to build a loyal following.
Create a partnership with local business
Start conversations with local businesses in your area. Many of them get catering for special lunches or meetings on a regular basis. Offer them a discount so that they order from you and make sure that you hand them your full menu in person.
This can create an ongoing revenue stream for your restaurant to increase your bottom line every month.
Giving people an extra incentive to try your restaurant for the first time is a great way to turn them into loyal customers. Usually, an offer of at least 20% off is good enough. You can also try 2 for 1 deal, free appetizers and anything else you can think of that would bring more people into your restaurant.
Happy hour means happy profits
The purpose of happy hour is to bring in more customers and boost your sales during the slowest time of the day. While restaurants normally put their happy hour in the late afternoon, Monday to Thursday, it’s up to you when your happy hour (not necessarily just one hour) is going to be depending on when customers visit your restaurant in particular.
Host your own events or classes
Cooking classes, wine tastings, and themed dinner parties. These are some examples of events that your restaurant can put on to attract new people to your restaurant to check out your atmosphere and try your food.
Send birthday emails
Almost everyone goes out to celebrate their birthday. When they do, they’re usually bringing quite a few people with them. This is a great opportunity to attract more customers to your restaurant.
Send out an email to your customers on their birthday with a free offer. Something along the lines of a free appetizer, dessert or even their entire meal. It’s a great way to remind them about your restaurant, and they may even bring along their friends who have never tried your food yet.
