Its that time of year again. Christmas just ended, and we are onto the new year and new decade at that! Despite best efforts, it’s often difficult to find time to make proper New Year’s resolutions – and even harder to make them stick around. However, maybe make just a few resolutions, ones that have serious revenue impact, and assign someone to execute them. We’re talking real business resolutions for your restaurant and ones that benefit you on a personal level too. With this in mind, here are four of the best resolutions for your restaurant to ring in the new year!
Improve Your Online Marketing Presence
Have you ever heard of the expression “Content is king”? This could not be more true for restaurants. Whether you hire a food photographer or opt to do it all yourself, start off 2020 by putting your food first. Don’t forget to share pictures of your food on your website, as well as your social media accounts! One other way to get people more engaged with your brand online is by starting a blog on your website. Your loyal customers can then read more about the types of dishes and services your restaurant provides in more detail.
Take Out the Legwork of Marketing
It’s easy to forget about the yearly preparation after the holidays. This includes restaurant supplies, such as paper products, utensils, or pizza boxes. However, for marketing, use the first couple of weeks of the new year by stocking up early on any marketing materials. Great creative with door hangers, reorder fliers to put into every takeout bag, and schedule some reminders on your calendar to rearrange if needed. Consider physical marketing onto your restaurant pizza boxes as well.
Improve Internal Operations
If you’re like most restaurant owners, you already know your day can change significantly by an employee calling out sick or simply not showing up for their assigned shift. Sleep easier at night by trying out some new applications to monitor employee clock-in times. Another way to improve your restaurant and its operations is by teaming up with delivery applications – such as Doordash or UberEats, to deliver food to customers without the need of your own personal delivery drivers.
