Updated: Sep 7
Christmas marketing isn’t limited to just the immediate holiday but includes your winter menu changes, catering services, increased promotions of cookies, cakes, pies, pastries and side dishes for holiday meals, holiday party bookings and gift card sales. You have a great opportunity to attract new customers, show your chef’s skills in preparing holiday favorites and exotic foods from other countries and cultures and host special tasting events that attract convivial crowds.
The season is so close you can almost smell the cakes baking. So along with decorating your tree and hanging the tinsel, it’s time to put your restaurant marketing plan into action and get ready to boost bookings. It’s the perfect time to entice new diners who are willing to try somewhere new, as well as invite back those who still dream about how great your food was last year.
