How special offers help you attract more guests

The priority for any restaurateur is to fill their restaurant, but that’s sometimes easier said than done. There is strong competition between restaurants in cities, which is why it’s so important to stand out from the crowd. Meanwhile, small-town restaurants need visibility. TheFork will help you achieve your goal by enabling you to attract new customers with special offers. Over time, this strategy will help you to maximise your occupancy rate and increase revenue.

The advantages of special offers for your restaurant

Increase visibility and get more bookings fast:

With TheFork, you have the option to offer your customers discounts ranging from 20% to 50%. When you offer a special 50% discount, you could see a 6.5x increase in the number of visits to your TheFork page and an 11-fold increase in your number of reservations!*

Fill your restaurant:

You can maximise your occupancy rate by setting the amount of your special offer, the days and times to which it will apply, and the number of covers.

For a restaurant that becomes profitable faster and stays profitable longer:

Special offers represent an additional source of revenue all year round. In addition, it’s a risk-free investment because it helps you to attract new customers. It’s a virtuous circle: With special offers, you can attract new customers who, if they’re happy, will post positive reviews, return to your restaurant, and make other customers want to eat there too.

TheFork tips

special offersRestrict your special offers to a limited number of customers

With TheFork, you can offer a discount of your choice on your restaurant’s menu for a limited number of reservations. This allows you to rapidly fill your restaurant.

TheFork special offersOffer promotions all year round

It’s a good idea to offer promotions spread throughout the year. You can offer a promotion on your menu to give it a boost during periods of low demand.

TheFork festivals give a real advantage to participating restaurants.
