LTO Calendar Template

Deciding what you want to promote can be a big enough challenge for a busy restaurant operator, but the planning it takes for a successful LTO means an even bigger investment in time. Grande has created a calendar template to get you started with your planning. The five suggested recipes from above have been integrated into the calendar with timing needed to plan, implement and promote your LTO. Also included in the template is a blank calendar for you to fill in your own menu ideas. Just adjust the timing and add in any additional activities to get your team a head start in planning your specials.
