We’ve already discussed the importance of keeping your happiest customers coming back for more, but what does it take to build your customer base beyond your loyal following?

Offering delivery, take away, and sit-down dining, restaurants must align their messaging across channels to provide the best customer experience possible. When you deliver a cohesive message and experience to your customers on every channel, your brand gains recognition, and the relationship between brand and customer can grow stronger than ever before.
A loyalty program – a structured, long-term marketing effort designed to encourage customer behaviors with rewards – can provide a business with many benefits. Increased sales, improved customer engagement, strengthened brand identity, and the ability to begin gathering valuable first-party data are typical results of a well-conceived, properly-implemented loyalty program.
Restaurant owners have a lot of knowledge about how to run their business: staffing, product, customer service, planning, scheduling, and organization. But a lot of important business decisions are made based on intuition, or a “gut feeling.” And while intuition is valuable, it’s usually earned through years of experiential learning. A data-driven strategy derived from restaurant data analytics can provide actionable insights to drive success in ways that business owners and marketers may not have considered.
