Thinking outside the Box: 9 Tips for increasing revenue

As a restaurant owner, finding fresh and effective ways to increase your sales is essential. Below, we share some inspiring strategies that will not only boost your sales but also set your restaurant apart from the rest.

Tip 1. Discover the Power of Niche Catering

Catering to specific communities, such as local sports teams, schools, or city councils, offers an opportunity to serve a niche that is often overlooked. Whether it’s providing nutritious meals for sports events or catering for municipal meetings, your service can play a vital role in supporting the local community.

Tip 2. Networking Events and Collaborations

Expand your network by collaborating with local businesses. Organize joint events, for example, a business association to offer exclusive lunch deals or snack packages for their members. For online events such as webinars, where your restaurant becomes the official food partner and offers special menus or discounts to participants. These collaborations not only increase your visibility but also attract a wider audience. Take a look in the evening at your local business park to see which companies are open late and contact them.

Tip 3. Well Breda Teams Up with Local Gym

Well Breda: In this innovative collaboration, Well Breda brings healthy, athlete-targeted nutrition directly to their local fitness community. Examples include smoothie bowls, protein waffles, a health box, or shakes. By joining forces, they provide a nutritious solution for anyone looking to improve their sports performance and well-being. This partnership highlights the strength of local collaborations and takes a step forward in supporting a healthy lifestyle inside and outside the gym. It not only promotes a healthy lifestyle but also increases your revenue.

Tip 4. Efficient Ordering for Schools, Corporate Canteens, and Gyms with the QR Solution

Make ordering for schools, corporate canteens, and gyms effortless with Cashdesk’s QR solution. For example, place a QR code at a school or near a school where students can easily order and pick up later. Simplify the process by allowing everyone to order and pay quickly and efficiently with their smartphone. This not only provides convenience but also increases service speed and improves the overall experience.

Tip 5. Encourage Upselling

Allow consumers to add extra items to their order on your website with the push of a button. Easily apply the upsell technique in the menu editor, select a product that is quickly chosen such as a dessert or a milkshake. Ensure the product is visible at the cart or checkout page. Your customer makes a better purchase, and you increase your revenue.

Tip 6. Leverage Social Media Marketing

Use the power of social media to extend your reach. Share attractive photos of your dishes, organize online contests, or offer exclusive discounts to your followers. A strong online presence can pique curiosity and attract potential customers. Explore social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, or TikTok.

Tip 7. Local Events

Organize pop-up events at locations such as a local festival or a market and extend your services. This increases the visibility of your brand and attracts a new local audience. It also creates a sense of exclusivity and urgency, making customers more likely to place an order.

Tip 8. Offer Unique Loyalty Programs

Implement a customer loyalty program where regular customers receive exclusive benefits, such as earning points or sharing coupons for discounts on products. This strengthens the relationship with your existing customers and encourages them to return regularly. Cashdesk can help with our automated marketing solution.

Tip 9. Special Menus

Add some spice to your menu with special menus. Adjust them for open days like Valentine’s Day, Christmas, or Eid al-Fitr. This keeps your offering fresh and attracts new customers looking for a unique experience.
