Time to Prepare for Valentine's Day. No, really.
Valentine's Day is one of the busiest restaurant days of the year. Quite often, a busy restaurant can take a romantic night out and turn it into a stressful wait for a table followed by slow service. One thing many restaurants have done to avoid long waits and slow service is limit the number of menu items offered. Having a special menu for Valentine's Day allows the restaurant to avoid the more complicated dishes that require more time to prepare. It also allows the restaurant to offer dishes and specials not usually seen on the menu.
To promote a special limited menu, you must have professionally printed menus ready for the special night.
Setting a special menu is just one idea that we will be able to help you with.
To attract the Valentine's Day crowd, you must have the appropriate ambiance for the special evening. Whether you decorate your restaurant for the holiday or have some promotional item to give away, a night out will always be remembered when you go the extra mile to ensure the experience is remembered. You don't want this Valentine's Day just to be another night out. You want it to be an extra memorable evening that will be talked about for years. If you handle the holiday correctly, you will create an evening to which all other Valentine's Day dinners will be compared.
A picture will tell the whole story.
Quite often, a restaurant will hire a photographer who will go around taking pictures of the couples to be sold at the end of the meal. If you bring in a photographer, you also need to be prepared with picture frames. Picture frames are a relatively inexpensive promotional item that can be personalized with your restaurant's name and logo.
Target the singles
Not everyone is in a relationship, so Valentine's Day is also famous for singles events. Quite often, these events are held at restaurants. Having a singles night or a specific event, such as a speed dating night, is not only a great way to bring people in, but it is another opportunity for promotional giveaways.
Valentine's Day is one of the busiest restaurant days of the year, behind Mother's Day, so make the experience memorable and give your couples a great reason to return. From menus to decorations to promotional items, PGS Printing can help you make this Valentine's Day one to remember.
