Spring is well on its way…the snow has melted and diners will soon be popping in! It’s time to refresh your restaurant to welcome them—and their appetites—to a new season of eating.

Put Spring on the Menu

Spring diners are often looking for lighter flavors and seasonal produce. As many diners will be looking to shed some winter weight, think about adding fresh salads, spring vegetables and lean meats to your offering.

This is also a great opportunity to take advantage of a new trend, from small plates to Sriracha-inspired flavors. In fact, you’ll find our trend predictions for 2016 were spot on!

Spruce Up Your Exterior

It’s time to wash the windows, add potted plants or a bench outside your door—and, if you have one—open up the patio. Small changes outside get diners excited about the season, and give them another reason to stop inside for a bite.

Update your Online Presence

Take a look at your Restaurant.com page—does it still look like winter? This is a great time to update your photographs, menu and double check that all the information is correct. We’re here to help you make any updates—simply contact your Partner Success team with any changes you’d like to make.

As you make changes to your exterior and menu, make sure to share pictures and stories with your fans on social media. It’s an easy (and free) way to get everyone into the swing of spring.

Prepare for Spring Holidays

Easter is right around the corner with Mother’s Day soon to follow…and a whole crop of diners will celebrate spring birthdays. So start thinking about your menus, specials and any promotions you want to create to make sure you have a full dining room on these special occasions.
