Marketing Ideas for February

Love Your Restaurant February 2018

Consider for a moment that you don't have anything ready to market for this month. For whatever reason, it just didn't get done. Ok, let's begin today. All things aside, there is a lot to love about marketing your restaurant in February. The most busy day will probably be on the 14, which is Valentine’s Day and Super Bowl Sunday last weekend may have been really busy as well. But these are only two important days for restaurants. February is also Cherry Month, Heart Month and Hot Breakfast Month, and this is just the beginning.

First consider beverage marketing, pour up something special on Cafe Au Lait Day, Kahlua Day, Margarita Day and Open That Bottle Night. Alcohol sales are higher margins and if you move beyond regular beverages, consider offering yummy recipe opportunities such as Cafe Au Lait Cheesecake and Kahlua Pancakes and a great start.

In addition to Ice Cream for Breakfast Day, February could also begin with additional offerings like Almonds, Bagels & Lox, Baked Alaska, Banana Bread, Carrot Cake, Cherry Pie, Chili, Chocolate Covered Peanuts, Chocolate Fondue, Chocolate Mint, Chocolate Souffle, Clam Chowder, Crab-Stuffed Flounder, Cream Cheese Brownies, Crepes, Fettuccine Alfredo, Frozen Yogurt, Gumdrops, Homemade Soup, Molasses Bars, Peppermint Patties, Pistachios, Pizza Pie, Plum Pudding, Sticky Buns, Strawberries, Tortellini and Tortilla Chips and, and, and!!!!
