November 20, 2023

As 2023 approaches its end, is your restaurant's turnover meeting your expectations? 

With Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year approaching, how can you promote and attract more orders during the holidays? 

Serving delicious food is not enough, how to attract more new customers and retain regulars?

Seize the holiday traffic peaks and take advantage of this holiday marketing strategy to unlock greater customer flow!

Holiday marketing is simple, just remember these four mantras:

  • Spread widely on social media

  • Attract customers with CRM

  • Reinforce conversion with in-store posters

  • Gift-giving requires gift cards

Spread widely on social media

Restaurants can utilize social media platforms such as Instagram, Facebook, etc., to announce holiday events or new products.


"I'm not good at taking pictures, and I don't know how to make posters. How can I post on Instagram?"

Don't worry! Chowbus provides holiday marketing poster templates with various design styles for you to choose from.


Chowbus has now launched a Thanksgiving & Christmas limited edition poster template. You don't need to invest time and cost in design; you can get material for posting on social media without any hassle.

Quickly select your favorite template and contact your account manager to customize an exclusive promotional poster!

Attract customers with CRM

Automatic SMS marketing is the preferred way to interact with customers, with precise reach and efficient conversion.


You can send messages to inform members about your holiday events and new products, attracting customers to spend.


Reinforce conversion with in-store posters

After attracting customers to the store through the above methods, in-store promotional materials such as posters, TV display images, and images on self-service ordering machines can remind customers of holiday events or new products, achieving higher conversion rates.


Gift-giving requires gift cards

There is a tradition of giving gifts during the holidays, and gift cards are very popular. Starbucks and Amazon also offer holiday-themed gift cards, and there are even Christmas gift card gift boxes, creating a festive atmosphere. 


During the holidays, restaurants can introduce their own gift cards, encouraging customers to give them to their friends and family. Restaurants can also lock in turnover in advance through gift cards.


Isn't this holiday marketing strategy simple and easy to implement? You can discuss and brainstorm with our account manager to develop a holiday marketing plan that suits your restaurant.
