Father’s Day is around the corner. Most people don’t have the time to make it special by creating elaborate home-cooked meals, which means they will be looking for a restaurant where they can demonstrate their appreciation for their fathers. Rather than putting up some bland banners showcasing your Father’s Day specials, look for innovative ways to catch people’s attention this Father’s Day.
Change Things Up
Rather than adding a new dish, feature all of the tried-and-true favorites in a buffet. Give dads the option to choose as much as they like from their favorite dishes. Additionally, consider offering a promotion that offers Fathers the opportunity to get a free item, such as a desert or drink for every child he has. Everyone, particularly fathers, appreciate being gifted something. Knowing that their celebratory meal isn’t going to break the bank will heighten your guests’s enjoyment.
Add Some Fun
Dad’s are known to be competitive. Add an extra layer of enjoyment by raffling off free meals, drinks, or deserts. This is an added revenue stream, as well as a great opportunity to make your guests’s experience memorable. If you have some extra space, setup a game area with prizes. Fathers with young children will appreciate the gesture, and the memories made will be priceless. Father’s Day comes every year. If you are able to create a memorable experience, your guests will add you to their annual Father’s Day traditions.
Don’t Forget Your Own
Some of your staff are fathers; they work on Father’s Day to provide for their families. Be cognizant of that fact and recognize it according to your means. Recognition could be anything from a take home dessert to a small bonus. Consider where you’re restaurant is at and the particular situations of your staff members. Lastly, enjoy spreading some goodwill to your staff. Rather than thinking of this as an added expense or more work, think of it as a great opportunity to share goodwill. Your attitude will effect your delivery and the efficacy of your act.
Your Father’s Day routine doesn’t have to be extravagant. Rather, consider what will create genuine enjoyment for your guests and staff. Acts of goodwill can resound endlessly. This Sunday is your opportunity to serve up some joy
