As part of our Restaurant Marketing Unlocked series, we’ll be letting you in on key marketing insight that will help your restaurant bounceback once reopen.
This time around we’re looking at how to ensure your restaurant’s reopening internal safety information is on-brand.
Styling social distancing
For restaurants to safely reopen, Government advice includes ensuring social distancing and hygiene notices are clearly available for customers to view inside your restaurant.
Almost half (47%) of consumers questioned in research carried out by restaurant intelligence platform Yumpingo, said their key criteria for choosing where to dine in the future will be based on a restaurant’s social distancing policies – especially if they exceed the legal requirements.
The difficulty for all restaurants reopening will be striking the balance between informing customers on the importance of following rules, in a way that doesn’t disturb the ambience and is still on-brand.
Plastering glaring and garish safety notices everywhere will not only impact the interior design of your restaurant, but also detract from the experience for customers who dine out for that sense of escapism.
Clear, consistent and on-brand
Whether it’s your signage, posters or floor markers, keep your internal messaging consistent to reassure customers.
Ensure your tone of voice is clear without being overbearing and any social distancing markers are on-brand.
In our latest whitepaper ‘How to get your restaurant open for business within the current government guidelines’, we delve deeper into how to create Covid-19 safety notices around your restaurant that are inline with your brand and still get the message across.
