The food service industry is competitive. If you're a bar or restaurant owner looking to stand out from the local competition, the key is to creatively market your business to keep patrons coming back for more. Below are some samples of promotional products for bars and restaurants that Warwick can create for your brand and help your business flourish.
A local brewery wanted an eye catching promotional item to place on tables that would boost their alcohol sales and highlight their weekly specials, while encouraging enrollment for their tasting events and brewery tours.
Beer list with photos and descriptions on one side, along with brewery's logo and art. Tasting event and brewery tour information on the back side of the wave. Logo and artwork was provided by the customer.
The table tents were placed in the center of each table before the afternoon and evening dining hours. Servers referenced the table toppers when they took orders, offering customers the chance to scan the different beer options, as well as the brewery tours and tasting events. When delivering the bill, servers referenced the table waves again, asking customers to find them on Facebook and review them on Yelp if they had a great experience.
These vibrant table waves brought attention to the brewery's latest beer options and increased beer sales by 35% each month. They also encouraged customers to sign up for tasting events and brewery tours which were listed on the back side of the wave. The end result was increased revenue for the brewery, and more attendees at their beer tasting events and tours. Additionally, the brewery saw increased Yelp reviews and Facebook followers, leading to a more robust online reputation for their business.
A restaurant was looking for a unique way to deliver custom printed coupons to their guests to attract more repeat business.
Restaurant logo and image of their famed wood stove pizza oven, plus branding design elements carried over from their menus and other marketing materials.
Coupon Gatefold folders are given out at parties, banquets, and special events to encourage customers to return in order to use their special coupons. Photos of each guest are taken during the event, and are printed in house at the restaurant so guests can take them home the same day.
Customers loved having a photo they could take home to commemorate their event. The restaurant was able to track the coupons that customers brought back in, and saw a major increase in repeat business.
A small sandwich shop wanted to increase their lunch hour business. Their target market was people who worked near their restaurant.
Logo with main menu offerings. Phone number was highlighted for those calling in a delivery order, and sandwich shop location was listed for those wanting to pick up their meals or eat at the restaurant.
Starting in November of the previous year, employees making deliveries handed out calendars to customers. The shop also kept a display box full of them by the cash register for customers to take. Since they are members of the chamber of commerce, the owners mailed calendars with their Christmas cards to other members.
Shop owners saw a marked increase in lunchtime sales. Despite hiring more employees to make deliveries, profit margins rose.
A pizzeria in Chicago wanted to increase traffic from those living in their neighborhood. Since they supply pizza at various school events and community functions, they wanted to handout branded giveaways at those events, since those people were within their target market.
Since this is a stock design, the pizzeria owners just supplied their logo and we typeset their slogan, address, and phone number in a coordinating color.
Employees took 100 calendars to each event they provided pizza beginning in mid-October through the end of December. Calendars were set up by the cash box or put in swag bags.
Not only did the pizzeria see an increase in their profit margin from sales in their restaurant, but they also started catering more events and parties. This opened the doors to establishing a catering division for their restaurant.
