Ideas for Marketing Restaurant Delivery
The benefit with advertising flags is that they are right at eye level of the people passing by your location. They are truly ‘can’t miss’ advertising. The call to action is clear and they get people to make a right hand turn into your location.
For locations in the path of a walkable area, a sidewalk sign is a must. Positioned right outside your front door, they tell customers that your location offers delivery so they can have a night in. Our customers like sidewalk signs for the flexibility of being able to change the message as needed. The frame and the inserts can be purchased separately. Once you have a frame, the opportunities for marketing are endless.
What if you are in an area that doesn’t allow much outdoor P-O-P? Do you just hope your customers remember you when they’re hungry?
A car cover is the perfect solution. Car covers fit snugly over your vehicle and broadcast your message to everyone passing by. And best of all, they are easily removed and folded for storage.
Custom banners give you the freedom to add practically anything on them. Add your logo, put your message and even your phone number. And with the banner buddy display system, they can be hung just about anywhere.
Even though a tube dancer doesn’t have a message on it, they are great for attracting attention. For example, a banner buddy set up near the curb, with a tube dancer bopping and popping right next to it. The tube dancer does double duty – getting customers to notice the message on the banner and drawing attention to your location.
What better place to advertise that your restaurant delivers than with a vehicle wrap? Unlike a car cover, a vehicle wrap stays put. Everywhere you drive, your bold, eye catching message is broadcast all over town.
You’ve seen those signs people hold and spin near the street? Well, everyone else sees them too! They’re sturdy and easy to handle. And when you need to promote restaurant delivery, they attract the attention of everyone passing by.
