Increase Repeat Traffic
Learn how to more effectively reach your existing customers by using a marketing calendar and direct mail programs. Your regular customers will feel more like they have been heard and more appreciated with special offers and comment cards to incentivize them to keep coming back.
Discover ways to grow your customer base and bring awareness to your restaurant by using one of Grande’s direct mail programs or customizing discount cards for local school and charity fundraisers. Make digital ordering even easier by integrating a popular online ordering program into your website or creating a smart phone app specifically for your restaurant. And organizing all promotions and events into a marketing calendar can make every tactic you choose more manageable.
Find tools to maximize sales from customers already in your restaurant. Specials, online promotions, and events can all entice them to try new menu items, while comment cards can help you gain insights on how to improve both your menu and service. Training your waitstaff to upsell and promote add on items can also improve check averages.
The first step in improving your profits is knowing your food costs and how they affect your pricing. You can also increase profits by making the pizza-making process smoother and more efficient. By offering a job-specific checklist for each position in your restaurant, every employee will know what needs to be done, and how to do it.
Keep your restaurant relevant by staying well informed and up-to-date on the latest trends in the industry, technology, and consumer dining habits. You’ll find articles, infographics and informative charts to help you manage your business.
