Looking to create a buzz about your establishment’s grand opening? Use these simple tactics to help your establishment bring in a crowd and stand out from the competition.
- Partner with a Charity
Start building relationships with the community by partnering with a charitable organization for your grand opening. Encouraging customers to donate to a good cause creates positive brand recognition which will have a lasting positive effect on your business now and in the future.
- Show Vendor Appreciation
Throw a private party for your vendors and their families to celebrate your establishment and show off their hard work in person. Celebrating your vendors helps build a core support system which can assist you with any future business challenges.
- Offer Extra Incentives
From coupons to complimentary dishes, giving your customers extra perks for showing up at the grand opening increases your profits, attracts more guests, and encourages future visits. Advertise and promote the extra incentives on social media several weeks in advance to build excitement.
- Invite Influencers
Influencers are known for having a massive social media following, often boasting thousands or online followers. Consider inviting influencers to your grand opening events or send them freebies to promote your brand. Because of influencers’ large community reach, one simple Facebook post or Tweet about your grand opening can entice hundreds of new customers to attend your big event.
