Bar & Restaurant Opening Essentials
Welcome Guests With Giveaways
Kick off your grand opening in style with branded goods on-theme with your bar or restaurant. Promote the big event on social media and let patrons know the first 50 guests will receive a free branded tee or sports bottle. While your great service and food quality will ultimately be what brings customers back, extra goodies like these will be icing on the cake.
Set Tables for Success
All aspects of your bar or dinner table are prime candidates for branding. Logoed glassware will impress guests sipping cocktails, while plastic souvenir cups are just the thing for kids to drink from while they eat. Don’t forget about branded menus and table tents too – perfect for promoting your business along with happy hour deals and specials.
Think Fun for Themes
If your establishment has a theme, such as a sports bar, there’s huge potential for creative giveaways that will get customers excited. For instance, toss around mini footballs to quarterbacks in training or give bundles of nuts to the biggest sports nuts in the room. Host happy hour events or trivia nights? Stock up on prizes like promotional bags or sunglasses to hand out to the winners.
When the excitement of opening day is over, give customers one last surprise by passing out promotional pens and branded mints with their bill. This extra effort will not only help them remember your establishment later on, it will make them more likely to tip well too.
