Restaurant Marketing Ideas

Inspiration for your October restaurant specials and marketing! These US-based and international celebration days help you showcase your versatility and creativity via your favourite seasonal ingredients. Monday, 14th of October is National Hero’s Day in The Bahamas, which is a national holiday and the perfect time to celebrate all things Bahamian.

October is National Seafood Month, National Pizza Month, National Chili Month, and includes such special days as Mother-in-Law Day, World Food Day, National Chocolate Day and culminates in that spooky sweet day, Halloween.

RestaurantNews.com shares the following information:

Coming up with fresh restaurant marketing ideas can sometimes be difficult for restaurant owners and operators.  Fortunately, October lays out a tasty selection of food focused days that offer up the right ingredients to help build your restaurant’s marketing menu.

As October is National Pizza Month, pizza deals and promotions are a natural fit.  National Chili Month shares the spotlight with pizza.  Spicy, chunky, with or without beans . . . there’s nothing like a nice, hearty bowl of chili to warm your guests down to their toes. Other food related days include Chicken Cacciatore Day, Egg Day, Fried Scallops Day, Greasy Food Day, Gumbo Day, Pasta Day, Seafood Bisque Day, Taco Day, Vegetarian Day, Wild Food Day and more.

HAPPY HOUR: For beverage marketing, October offers Liqueur Day, Frappe Day and Vodka Day.

SWEET TOOTH: Restaurants looking to sweeten things up a bit can look forward to Angel Food Cake Day, Apple Betty Day, Boston Cream Pie Day, Brandied Fruit Day, Candy Apple Day, Caramel Custard Day, Chocolate Cupcake Day, Chocolate Day, Dessert Day and Pumpkin Cheesecake Day.

Special days for the month include Boss’s Day and Mother-In-Law Day.  If you really want to think outside the box, imagine the fun that can be had with Mad Hatter Day, Bald and Free Day, Howl At The Moon Day and, of course, Halloween.

And don’t forget: as the weather chills and the leaves fall from the trees, there will also be opportunities to set up tasting booths at local fall festivals.
