Customer Loyalty | The Solution to Restaurant Sales and Profitability?

As a restaurant marketing expert, I’ve spoken to hundreds of owners about their greatest frustrations. Did you know that the same 3 obstacles surface over and over? Low sales, low profits, and difficulties finding quality employees – sound familiar? 

The truth is these problems all have one potential solution in common: building customer loyalty! Restaurants want more repeat customers but often fail at retaining them for multiple visits. That’s why if restaurants can establish loyal patrons as part of their core business model they are likely to see an uptick in both sales AND profitability along with access to high-quality staff members who stick around longer than average.

How To Not Get Customer Feedback For Your Restaurant

So, we all know the importance of customer reviews for restaurants. You want to know what’s working and what’s not.

ABR Thanksgiving Food Drive

In 2007 I had the vision of giving back to my community and helping those in need around Thanksgiving, and in year one my wife and our two kids worked together to help a handful of families by providing Thanksgiving meal essentials. Fifteen years later what started out as helping a few families with meals has transformed into a food drive that has an extensive reach in our community. This year with the support of everyone who donated we were able to break our record and create over 300 meals for those in need.

A food drive of this magnitude wouldn’t be possible without having a circle of friends and family that believe as strongly as myself and are willing to not only donate their money but also their time. I would also like to extend a special thank you to Meijer for supporting our food drive.

Thank you.
