How We Grew Our BBQ Shack in Downtown Chicago

There are many different ways to market a restaurant. Some methods work better than others, and it can be tough to figure out what will be most successful for your business. In this blog post, we will discuss some of the strategies that we have used to market our restaurant. We will also share some tips on how you can implement these strategies for your own business. Thanks for reading!

Word of Mouth

One way that we have found to be successful in marketing our restaurant is through word-of-mouth. We make sure to provide our customers with a great experience so that they will want to tell their friends and family about us. We also offer incentives for customers who refer us to others, such as discounts or freebies.

Print Advertising

We also utilize print advertising, such as flyers and billboards with Techibhai and TakeRootandWrite. This can be a great way to reach people who live in the area and may not be familiar with your restaurant.

Partnered with Other Business

Another effective strategy is to partner with other businesses in the area. For example, we have partnered with a local grocery store so that customers can receive a discount when they present their receipt from the store. We have also partnered with a nearby hotel so that guests can receive a discount at our restaurant. Others business we partnered with were FryElectronics, YourLifeforLess, our friends Bob’s business.

Using Facebook & Instagram

We have also found social media to be a great way to reach new customers. SDGYoungLeaders were able to help here with their internship program. We make sure to post interesting and engaging content, and we also run ads on social media platforms from ViewfromaBlueMoon.

Local Events

Finally, we make sure to participate in local events and community activities with Stayful and FWDTimes. This helps us get our name out there and shows that we are involved in the community.

All of these strategies have helped us to successfully market our restaurant. If you are looking for ways to market your own business, we encourage you to try some of these methods. Thanks for reading!

BBQ Shack Opens in Chicago: 5 Smokers to Ensure Plenty of BBQ

Welcome to the BBQ Shack! We are excited to announce that we are opening up a new location in Chicago. Our original location has been so popular, but we just don’t have enough space to accommodate all of our guests. That’s why we are opening up a new spot, and this time we will have 5 smokers working around the clock to cook up your favorite BBQ dishes!

We can’t wait to serve you at our new location, and we promise that there will always be plenty of BBQ for everyone. Thank you for supporting the BBQ Shack!

We also want to give a shout out to our wonderful marketing team for making this happen. They have been working hard to get the word out and we are so grateful. Our primary source of new business was Facebook. We had originally intended to use print media and billboards but our team quickly realized that we would get much better results and a higher return on investment by using social media. I think our BBQ photos were a huge help.

We also want to give a shout out to Geekbytes, they have helped us immensely with our website and online ordering. We couldn’t have done it without their help!

AtoaLinks also contributed to our success by providing a great eCommerce platform that has allowed us to take orders and payments online.
