Undoubtedly, it’s the most wonderful time of the year, but that could also mean one of the most stressful times of the year. Make this holiday season a jolly one by getting ahead. Utilizing restaurants, bakeries and pizzerias gift cards, catering services and loyalty programs can even bring a smile to the Grinch.
Gift cards are often overlooked and underutilized. Gift cards are a great gift that could be a small gesture and a major way to boost sales, especially at the end of the year. Restaurants may put out the cards at registers but oftentimes it’s without a sign or any purchase incentive. This year, take the extra step and promote an incentive program. “Buy 3, get 1 free … buy $100 worth and get $50 free … buy a gift card and receive a free dessert!” All of these ideas are a perfect way to get returning customers and keep business booming.
Holiday party? Get it catered! Retirement party? Get it catered! Employee appreciation? GET IT CATERED! Sorry, didn’t mean to yell, but seriously, get it catered. This takes pressure and stress out of the picture. Something as simple as breakfast in the morning at the office can bring joy and boost morale. Not only does it bring smiles, but it also lets your coworkers or friends know that they’re appreciated. On the opposite side, for restaurants and pizzerias offering catering services, stay ahead of the game with prepping. The LloydPans Pizza Dough Boxes are great for stacking and proofing dough to crush the next office catering run.
Everybody loves a deal. All throughout the year when dining at your favorite spots, check if there’s a loyalty program. Not only will this help boost sales, but also keeps customers coming back. Coupons and punch cards are incentives for customers to return to get a free slice of pizza or discounted item on their next purchase.
Small shops can take a hit during the holiday season. It’s important to remember the local mom and pop shops when thinking about spreading the holiday cheer. Visiting nearby restaurants, pizzerias and bakeries gives back to the community and can make a big impact. When shopping locally, deals can be made for customers and that in turn, will be a forever customer.
Yes the holidays can be stressful but there’s ways to beat it. Stay ahead of the crowds and long lines by planning ahead. Show the important people you care by showing your appreciation. As always, thank you for supporting LloydPans!
