Capture and Keep Family Diners with Innovative Offerings

Wednesday, July 29, 2020 | 2:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time

COVID-19 business disruption has forced foodservice operators to focus on creativity like never before. Capturing new family orders and keeping regular family clientele coming back is requiring a shift to some unconventional practices and, for some restaurateurs, an increased wooing of kids.

Among these new unorthodox ideas are Do It Yourself (DIY) kits for restaurant foods that allow parents and kids to work together to create at home their favorite or new loved dine-out dishes. But which of these moves are providing a good “bang for the buck” while drawing in family orders?

Join us to hear from operators who have implemented family-friendly options to build business. Hear about:

  • The design and preparation of restaurant meal DIY kits
  • Getting around kit operational and logistical challenges
  • Successful kit marketing maneuvers
  • Operator thoughts about the fate of DIY options after the pandemic has subsided
