Many restaurant owners never really know what exact dishes they want to advertise when they print table tents. For most beginners in using table tents, they usually tend to just choose random dishes and house specialties. While of course this can be good enough for most circumstances, an effective table tent promotional campaign need a little focus on what specific dishes are suitable for the table tent design. As a guide for all you beginners in table tent printing out there, here are the best things that you should always put in your color table tents.
Popular appetizers + One of the first things that you should print in your table tents are your appetizers. This is a great start because most people want to start with an appetizer obviously. So as they sit down in your restaurant, they should already see something that they might be interested in through your table tents. Be sure of course to place in the popular appetizers so that people will see the best thing you have to offer in this category.
Your desserts + Another thing that should be mandatory in your table tent dishes are desserts. Usually most people do not think of dessert at first when they are ordering. It is usually just a minor decision reserved until later. A table tent with a delicious dessert image changes this trend and makes people crave for a dessert early on. That is why table tents are quite effective at getting you extra sales by displaying desserts that usually are not decided upon initially by customers.
New dishes or drinks + Also, you should always print new table tents for new dishes and drinks that you are introducing. For regular customers and new ones a like, a table tent that advertises a +new dish+ usually gets attention. New things are usually what people want to try so it is best to cater to this human tradition by giving people the opportunity to do so with your new dishes.
Value dishes or meal packages + Meal packages or value dishes are also an important thing to place on table tents. Lots of people are looking for meal deals like this since most want to save money, or at least minimize costs as much as possible. Letting people see this immediately through a table tent, gives them a solid reason to stay in your restaurant.
Great! I hope you remember to always put the things above on your table tents. These dishes are what you usually should focus on because your main dishes usually should have been promoted already through your posters and menus. So print those table tents well and good luck!
