How Your Restaurant Can Reach Out to New Customers

Finding new customers for your restaurant is not always easy, but it can be done. Here are some top tips to help you out.

Switch Your Location

The location of your restaurant is a huge factor when it comes to finding new customers. If you are in a location that doesn’t give you much exposure, you will struggle. So, if your restaurant is tucked away in an alley that nobody walks down, it might be time to think about a switch. You ideally need to be located somewhere that allows you to take advantage of passing trade. If people can see your restaurant, they can be tempted to come inside. It’s one of the worst-kept secrets in the industry!

Start a Food Blog

The world extends beyond your restaurant though. To attract people to your restaurant nowadays, you have to think digital. The internet offers you all kinds of great opportunities for reaching out to people. This is something that is not always easy, but it can be done best by blogging about food. You can build a blog cheaply and easily, but it could be very valuable. People love to read about recipes and new types of food. So, as a restaurant owner, it makes sense to capitalise on this audience and reach out to new people. It will also show them that you know what you’re talking about.

Create a Signature Dish

Has your restaurant got one dish that you are all particularly proud of? If so, why not try to brand it as the restaurant’s signature dish? This will give customers an extra reason to come in and sample it. You could create an entire advertising strategy around one or two top signature dishes that you think customers will love. They will act as a selling point for your restaurant. And that will help to attract people who have never even considered visiting your restaurant in the past.

Make an App for Bookings

To get more people through the doors of your restaurant, you need to make it as easy as possible for people to book a table. This is why I think you should definitely create an app that allows people to do exactly that. It’s a great way of making life easier for your potential customers. And it drags the business further into the 21st century at the same time. You can easily get a developer to create an app for you. And then it won’t be long before your app is up and running.


Get Creative with Special Offers

People like to grab a bargain. It’s an age-old technique, and it works as well as ever before. So, if you want your restaurant venture to succeed, make sure you think outside the box when it comes to creating special offers. Sure, you could go for the conventional offers, such as two for one deals or 10% off on your birthday. But those can be pretty boring if you don’t spice things up once in awhile. You should think up new ideas like linking up with local hotels to increase your reach and offer people a bargain.

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
