LTOs are a fun way to attract business and engage with your customers.
Consumers enjoy special occasions- it’s one of their favorite reasons to dine out! LTOs provide a special opportunity for your customers to have a new experience at your restaurant. Whether you’re incorporating a new menu item, flavor, or just celebrating a holiday, an LTO adds some excitement to their dining experience- hopefully one that will make your customers come back again!
We suggest trying LTOs that celebrate Oktoberfest (September 22 – October 7) and National Dessert Day on October 14th. Oktoberfest is already a popular celebration and LTOs with sausage make a great fall menu addition. Lesser known national food celebration days add an extra unique LTO experience. You could even stretch your offer over several days, or even a week or more to give people more time to celebrate!
Social media is a power player.
If you haven’t noticed, social media is how many businesses are promoting their LTOs. Make sure you’re using your Twitter, Facebook, and even Instagram accounts to let your fans know. Check out the trending hashtags and use relevant ones to tag your post. Or create your own fun hashtag and encourage your customers to use it when they visit your establishment.
