Attract customers in your restaurant when you need them most
Empty tables during service means less revenue but it can also impact customers deciding whether to enter your restaurant. Increase your restaurant occupancy rate with TheFork marketing levers such as special offers, loyalty program and Festivals.
You control your customer flow
You have full control over when your online bookings are open or closed.
Depending on your needs you can even set the number of covers available for online booking. Is your phone off the hook and your restaurant fully booked? Close online booking.
Are the locals away for the holiday weekend and you want to attract diners from out of town? Increase your online availability. Do you have a rush at 8:30pm but no-one before then? Set up an early-bird special offer for your first service.
