The hospitality industry is highly competitive, and you must find ways to enhance your services to keep your customers coming back for more. It’s the little things that show customers that you care and that you appreciate their business.
Here are a few tips to increase your checkout bill and entice your customers to return for repeat visits.
Tip 1 – Offer Freebies at the End of the Meal
For that extra touch, try offering a free tasting of a sweet dessert drink such as Choco Noir served in a nice shot glass topped with whipped cream. Another idea is to show customers a special boozy coffee drink after their meal to warm them up before you send them off. Kafé Luna is a great option! Even a small free offering can help create a positive association in your customer’s minds that you are a generous place to visit.
Tip 2 – Get Creative with Your Drinks
Experiment with creative garnishes, cocktail containers, and colors. For example, Monfongo Restaurant uses Premium Blend low-alcohol liquors to concoct special drinks to offer their customers. One, in particular, is the most delicious-looking and tasting Piña Colada with Rhumbero Superior served in a carved-out pineapple with whipped cream, cinnamon, and a cherry on top. It doesn’t get any better than that!
Remember that just like with food, drink presentation, colors, and containers matter. Fancy drinks attract customers and increase your profits. Drink colors can entice or turn off a customer. Be careful when picking colors for your signature drinks.
Tip 3 – Seasonal Specials
Let your creativity go wild and come up with seasonal specials to serve for a limited time throughout the year. Everyone loves seasonal drinks, from coffee to cocktails. For example, heat things up in winter with a fiery cinnamon drink like Cinnamon Wicket or offer your customers a sweet Irish Cream Cocktail with Féileacán around St. Patrick’s Day.
Tip 4 – Come Up with Sweet Deals
Advertise a buy-one-get-one-free deal on social media to attract new customers to your business. Offer a small free taste of new drinks to entice customers to order outside their comfort zone.
