How to attract customers to your restaurant?
Restaurants are an extremely competitive business and attracting new customers is always a challenge. For instance, Dubai is a highly competitive market, with approximately 2862 restaurants in the city. Customers usually tend to stick with restaurants they know and like, but at the same time many people are interested in trying out new places. Successful restaurant owners know that diners enjoy a combination of value with a unique experience. By offering a value deal, they attract new customers to their restaurant and by having a unique dining experience they make sure customers remember their place and talk about it. The word-of-mouth is still one of the strongest form of marketing.
Take a look at these 4 remarkable restaurant experiences that stand out from the crowd:
