Have you ever wanted to expand your customer base and drive more traffic to your venue, but didn't know where to begin?
Don't stress! We've got just the solution - Combo Deals.
Short for 'combination deals', combo deals are the perfect marketing tactic that a venue of any size can take on board and see instant results from. It's a fool-proof way to target your customers with added value on their order.
For more marketing tips for your foodservice venue, see this article.
We share our much-loved combo ideas for your venue below, so that you can sell more pizzas and achieve the profits you've always dreamt of.
What Exactly Are Combo Deals?
Combo deals essentially treat your customers to more - more variety, more savings and more reasons to visit your venue!
For example, if your meatlovers pizza is priced at $15, and your beer is priced at $10, a combo deal that will tickle the fancy of your customers will be a $20 deal - saving them $5, and heightening your chances of selling more than you would if you were to sell them individually.
But, it's all about maximising your selling occasions and taking control of the products you want your customers to purchase.
Major fast food chains have been taking on the combo deal technique for many years. Taylor from Business Insider Australia found that fast food restaurants experienced a 5.4% increase in sales after integrating meal deals at valuable prices.
It all comes down to understanding your customers - what they like, what they don't like and what they find valuable!
How Combo Deals Can Help Your Venue
Combo deals are a great asset to any foodservice venue. Not only do they offer you the chance to sell more, but you can ultimately build a loyal customer base that keeps on giving.
Driving traffic to your venue is a major key in venue growth. Who doesn't want more people at their venue, enjoying their stone baked pizzas? Driving traffic to your venue using combo deals is super easy. Create a combo deal that's hard to miss and resist, and find ways to broadcast it.
We recommend printing large A1 or A0 posters and hanging them on your windows and doors. You can also showcase your deal with a clearly designed artwork for use on your social media. Get the engagement flowing, and you'll have them at your door in no time.
Increase Selling Occasions
You can easily increase your selling occasions by having multiple combo deals scheduled for an event, or time of day. Breakfast, lunch, brunch, dinner, birthdays are just some of the events you can take advantage of. The more combo deals available, the more purchase occasions you'll have.
