Most people, their families, friends and business associates really enjoy having the opportunity to dine in a warm and welcoming restaurant. It’s very relaxing to enter a restaurant where the staff and manager make it a point to cater to customers.

When people celebrate anniversaries, birthdays, new business ventures, or the holidays, the right environment and delicious food becomes even more important and uplifting.

Think about it for a moment — who doesn’t like being pampered? Furthermore, who do you know who doesn’t like to feel important and valued as a customer?

The Performance Based Restaurant Marketing Strategy

A solid restaurant marketing strategy based on best practices is vital to the success of any restaurant. Keep in mind that as the market changes, grows, or contracts, the marketing strategy should be capable of laying the groundwork for change in response to industry trends. Your restaurant marketing strategy should include the creation of an unusual and interesting atmosphere, innovative lighting, relaxing background music, and memorable wall decorations. The tempting food is next on the agenda since it’s holds the key to success or failure with customers. Anyone in the business knows that it goes without saying that the menu is a big part of the charm and success.

Then, there’s the friendly and welcoming staff that is hopefully well groomed, pleasant and highly trained. It’s also in the best interest of the wait staff to take this approach seriously since they have the opportunity to build their own customer base. Our restaurant experience is extensive to say the least, and we have observed wait staff members who are very skilled in bonding with their customers. As a result, these customers usually request being served by “their” special wait staff member/members. They are serious about this relationship because they know the service they will receive.

Regardless of the type of restaurant and food specialties, the competition for customers is fierce especially in geographic areas where people have very diverse tastes. For this type of customer base, It might be Italian one night, French food the next day, Japanese or Greek food later in the month.
