Nothing brings people out more than nice weather, so how are you going to drive them to your restaurant while it’s still ‘patio season’? We know that every restaurant has its own special personality, and we want people coming your way so…

here are three ‘summer approved’ ideas that’ll help you generate more traffic:

1. Get social:
Social media has a huge influence on where people head to eat. Everyone is always looking for the next big spot to share on their social feeds! Use this to your advantage. Host an incentivized social media contest and get your guests to share photos on their feed to their friends and family – a hashtag and a location mention goes a long way!

2. Brunch it up:
Brunch is the new breakfast. People now-a-days are always looking for the best brunch spot to catch up with friends and family. Enhance your brunch experience with a new summer inspired recipe or bottomless mimosas and watch guests find their way back to your restaurant weekend after weekend.

3. Make it a party:
Nice weather brings people together, make a party out of it! Host events and celebrate happy hour with happy guests. Maybe even launch a new cocktail or two. The more events you hold, the more likely you’ll become someone’s next go-to spot.

It’s never too late to start planning your activities and these warm months are the perfect time deliver delicious food & drinks!
