Mobile Marketing for Restaurants

Discover How You Can Use Texts to Fill Seats

Create impactful, personalized text messages that skyrocket your sales and ROI! Managing a restaurant is a complex endeavor. It is not always about serving mouthwatering food. You need simple solutions to keep guests visiting your restaurant and your vision running smoothly while growing your revenue at the same time. Our restaurant text messaging software takes five minutes or less to create campaigns, has a 98% open rate, a 2-4 hour time-to-revenue from sending a campaign, and encourages word-of-mouth discount referrals that make your guests 4x more likely to buy, and reduces your customer acquisition cost by almost 50%. Read on to preview a selection of texts our clients have sent to their guests to increase visits to their restaurants.

Weekly Specials

Weekly special text campaigns are great for showcasing a featured entree. Instead of announcing specials to guests already sitting in your restaurant, why not broadcast your delicious new dish to 1000s of your diners via text? They help drive traffic with new and loyal guests who are excited to see your latest fares. Your guests can reserve a table directly from the text and get a discount for referring a friend!

Extended Hours

Text campaigns that update guests about your new or extended hours are an excellent way to increase sales. Guests can quickly be informed that they can take advantage of your longer hours or new happy hour and pay you a visit.

Special Events

Are you hosting a wine dinner? Featuring a local farm’s produce for a limited time? Special events text campaigns are ideal for promoting reservations and encouraging urgency for booking a table soon. Sell out of special events using text marketing faster than any other channel.

Cross-Promotional Texts

Cross-promotional texts are perfect if you are partnering with another entity outside of your restaurant and want to drive business to both businesses. These text campaigns are especially appropriate for promoting multiple restaurants owned under one restaurant group.

Gift Card Specials

Gift card specials are precisely that. This SMS campaign allows your guests to get valuable discounts when they purchase gift cards for their friends, family, and acquaintances. They can order gift cards directly from your text and enjoy their savings instantly!

Word-of-Mouth Referrals

Word-of-mouth referrals are one of the best ways to drive new traffic to your restaurant. Restaurants that use our SMS software get a 12x ROI in gross sales for every $1 spent. When your guests refer your restaurant, they get special discounts when the referral is redeemed. Everyone wins, and you know exactly how many new guests you acquired through your text-based word-of-mouth referrals.
