What is a Marketing Plan?

Without marketing, you won’t be able to sell your business to potential customers. Since you are running a restaurant business, you should learn and be able to know how to deal with your customer base.

Email Newsletter

Since you are a restaurant owner, you may send them newsletters about your restaurant on their birth day. They may just decide to dine in your restaurant if you do this. Also, sending email newsletters may help you spread the information of your restaurant to others.

Special Event Days

People are really fond of getting out of the house and spend their special days outside the home. This is the perfect time to think of a special event day for your restaurant. You may hold a comedic day for your customers on that particular day. You may also hold a special mom’s day or a ladies’ night in particular. This are just some ideas on the kind of events that might catch the attention of those people who just wants to spend their day outside and be relaxed.


Holding a small contest for customers is definitely a good idea to market your restaurant. There are many people out there who finds it enjoyable and fun to join even a small contest for them that business establishments prepared for them. You should make this contest different from any other contests held in other restaurants. Give away some gifts for those customers who won your contest. Those gifts may contain or have something printed on it that is related to your restaurant. Through it, you will be giving gift and marketing your restaurant at the same time.
