All of those topics were thought for either small restaurants or big ones. Hosting restaurant events is something all restaurants should do. Also, the more events you host the more you get known in your area.
- LIVE MUSIC
Having good music playing on the background while you’re eating is really good, but having live music is even better. There are two good reasons for you to have live music at your restaurant. First, people love live music and when you combine good music with good food, customers tend to spend more and stay longer. Secondly, it’s no too hard to find people to play at your place. Local musicians are always looking for places to play, and you have to keep in mind that when they play somewhere they always bring people to watch, so you might have to pay him, but all of his friends, family and fans are definitely spending money with food and drinks!
