What kind of message are your employees sending out to customers when you’re not there?

Extreme Pizza offered a mailer with a headline that asked, “Is There Such a Thing as Too Fresh?” Round Table Pizza teased a two-for-one deal with, “Come and Enjoy a FREE Pizza on Us!” Did you just start offering online ordering? Send out a mailer that reads, “Is This Your First Time? Get 20% Off Your First Online Order!”

Help Young Customers Plan Their Future

Summer’s coming, and many graduating seniors face an uncertain future. Tom Feltenstein suggests helping out by hosting a Career Counseling Day at your pizzeria. Invite students and parents to enjoy pizza and visit with career counselors from local colleges and universities. Choose a day for the event, set a starting time and charge a set price. Promote it on social media and ask local schools to distribute flyers to students.
