As summer gives way to fall, many families find that their busier schedules just don’t allow for dining out on a regular basis. But September offers restaurant owners and operators many restaurant marketing opportunities to help build traffic and sales.
September is a great time to roll out some of your restaurant’s top breakfast, chicken, mushroom and rice recipes as the entire month is devoted to those products.
September also offers many special days and foods that can be worked into your restaurant marketing plan, including Acorn Squash, Apples, Apple Dumplings, Butterscotch Pudding, Cheese Pizza, Cheeseburgers, Cherries Jubilee, Cherry Popovers, Chocolate, Coffee Ice Cream, Corned Beef Hash, Cream-Filled Donuts, Guacamole, Hoagies, Hot Cross Buns, Ice Cream Cones, Linguine, Macademia Nuts, Pancakes, Peanuts, Pecan Cookies, Salami, Strawberry Cream Pie, Welsh Rarebit and White Chocolate.
Beverage marketing days include Beer, Chocolate Milkshakes, Coffee, Hot Mulled Cider, Creme de Menthe and Rum Punch.
Help guests celebrate the special people in their lives on days devoted to Mom, kids, grandparents, neighbors, parents and wives. And don’t forget that newspaper carriers, guys with beards, programmers, pharmacists, lumberjacks, hunters, fishermen, pirates and Hobbits also need some love.
