Tips and Updates for Your Commercial Kitchen

Your Customers Will Enjoy these Touches at Your Restaurant

In the restaurant business, your customers can be your toughest critics, but if you take care of the basics and give your attention to some of the nicer touches, they can be your best friends. At Don’s Supply, we’ve been the go to restaurant supply store for a long time, and we’ve learned a lot from our customers.

Here are few things we’ve learned over time that you may be able to use to make your restaurant stand out:

  • Signature Dish: A signature dish, like your signature, is unique and can only come from you. If you’ve got the secret to the best corned beef hash in the world, keep the recipe secret but serve it up to your customers! Whatever dish is your specialty, if nobody else has it, make it the marquee offering that makes people think of you when they think of your dish.
  • Eye-Catching Menus: Menus don’t have to be generic and in these days of selfies and self-promotion, nobody has an excuse for a generic menu. Your menu is your calling card so it should reflect your brand. You may think a menu is a small thing in the overall scheme of things, but it’s a small thing that, if done right, can get some big attention. And it doesn’t have to be expensive, just unique and aligned with your brand.
  • Use Promos: These are the menu attachments, table standees, signage and the like to alert your customers to your special deals and promotions. If you spend time thinking up promotions for your restaurant you want to make sure your customers know about them and can take full advantage.
  • Pass Out Samples: There are any number of ways to do this, from advance offerings to create buzz for a new product to pass-arounds that whet people’s appetites (who can resist an order of your specially seasoned home fries once you’ve dropped a few of them off at the tables?). Be creative and grab people’s attention!
