Keep Your Restaurant Cool this Summer.
Make your business a place your customers will keep returning to all season long.
Summer is here and as we welcome in the warm weather, its time to add some seasonal fun to ensure your guests have the best time.
Cool Down with Refreshing Beverages
Go simple with new flavored sparkling water or add a few seasonal wines (hello rosé), beers and cocktails (Campari Spritz) if you can. Plug them into your menus or chalkboards as only available for the summer. Guests want to escape from their homes during hot days and offering them refreshing spritzes is a sure way to keep them comfortable.
Take advantage of the seasonal fruit and vegetable bounty. Squash, tomatoes, green beans, cucumbers, corn and so much fruit. Even incorporating a seasonal vegetable into a current menu item elevates the dish and keeps your menu fresh. There is a reason caprese salad is so popular, because we love cheese, fresh summer tomatoes and basil. It screams summer and we really haven’t ever heard someone say they were tired of caprese.
Mobile Point of Sale
If you are able to have tables outside, adding in a point of sale system to allow for mobile order taking is convenient for the server and ensures orders are to the kitchen in less time. We offer a variety of solutions that have this feature. You can find out more here.
Tune Up Your Tunes
Get your music system in tip top shape. Update your playlist to include seasonal favorites. If you can, bring in live music once a week as a themed night or to showcase a local musician. Promote it on social media and in your restaurant. Fun music is a sure fire way to keep guests entertained and enjoying themselves.
Keep it Cool
Whether you are a pizzeria, fast casual or formal restaurant. Keeping the inside of your restaurant is a challenge during the summer months. However, with many customers not wanting to cook at their own homes when its hot, preparing for the heat is essential. Be proactive in making sure your cooling unit is working correctly. Fix doors that don’t automatically close behind them. Getting ahead of the heatwaves allows your guests to think of your restaurant as a sure place to cool down over lunch or dinner.
