Keeping attention focused on a restaurant located in a very small rural town.
Keeping attention focused on a restaurant located in a very small rural town. It is located near a large city, about 15 miles or so. Also very near a large recreational park and lake.
If you’re in a recreational or tourist area, be sure that your restaurant appears in Google Local and Yelp searches to attract visitors looking for a bite. Mobile phone searches are the top way that day trippers and vacationers find places to dine and Google Local, which appears on maps, and Yelp both can drive customers your way. Also, keep an eye on your reviews on these sites and respond to any that aren’t positive to let both unhappy and potential customers know you care. You can also try a loyalty program with savings coupons, buy 5 get one free specials, happy hour deals, and more to keep the locals and day trip regulars coming back. I hope this helps, good luck.
