Insight for Restaurateurs

10 Suggestions to T.H.R.I.V.E!

It Is possible that there is a community of business professionals who actually care about YOU!

Your job is simple — Just do what you do! We are coming to eat and to learn more about you. We don’t expect that you do anything special except to reserve a particular section so we can sit in the vicinity of one another, but you don’t have to push tables together or set up your dining area just to accommodate us.

Our needs are simple — We usually trickle in between 11:00 a.m.—1:00 p.m. We prefer to be seated near each other rather than at one table. The biggest inconvenience to you is our need for separate checks.

Your opportunity is simple — We want to support you so you will want to capitalize on the opportunities that could bring people back. Just a few ideas to promote yourself and encourage repeat business. (Not required)

Free desert — It’s one way to show that you appreciate us.

Come Back Coupons—Why NOT! With that kind of an incentive, you are more likely to get that repeat business that businesses THRIVE on.

Talk to us — Let us know who you are, how your business got started, and what inspired you to open your own restaurant.

Sampling — It’s just a suggestion to help us experiment with more of who you are and what you offer.

Your own imagination — You are the business owner and you know the best way to promote YOU! Don’t let us limit you. We just appreciate your unique contribution to the dining experience in the Fox Cities because knowing more about you helps us to know the variety of options we have to choose from.

Your commitment is simple — The first Monday of March, each year, is our anniversary week of T.H.R.I.V.E.’s inception. As a result, we ask all restaurateurs to attend our annual appreciation banquet. Over 100 business people in the community come together to present awards, recognize you, and give you the well-deserved break that you need to enjoy a night out, on us. There is no cost or obligation, but without you, the event loses out on its purpose for being. Please look to your calendar and mark your calendar for the first Monday in March. Details will arrive in early January.
