When Opening A Restaurant, Don’t Forget These Must Have Items

It’s opening day for your restaurant. Your staff is ready, food items are stocked but you feel like something is missing. Here are some items that you don’t want to forget when opening your restaurant:

-Restaurant Apparel – To create a uniform look among all your employees, matching restaurant apparel is a must have. There are various apparel options to choose from, so there is a look and style that will complement your restaurant ambiance. For casual restaurants, a basic t-shirt with logo or even a hat for employees are great looks. For a fine dining restaurant, a nice button down shirt would add to the classy feel of your restaurant.

-Print Products – In a restaurant there are a few paper items that are used at almost every table. Napkins, bar napkins, coasters and customer comment cards are a few of those items. These items can be basic or you can choose to extend your company’s brand to these items. Even on the simplest items, the more a customer sees your logo, the greater the opportunity to keep your company top of mind.

-Pens – From your servers writing down customer’s orders to customers signing their checks, you need pens and in a large quantity for your restaurant! Why in a large quantity? Pens have a tendency to walk off with customers. Knowing this, make sure to brand your pens with your logo so every time a customer uses the pen they are reminded about the last time they visited your restaurant. A blank pen or even a pen with someone else’s logo, which we have all seen in restaurants, isn’t helping your company’s marketing.
