Restaurant Promotion for October – Fun & Scary Halloween

October is the month to hold fun as well as scary promotional activities in your establishment. Its Halloween month. Host a Halloween bash in your bar or restaurant. If you are managing a restaurant come out with seasonal specialties such as Pumpkin Soup, Apple Cider Stew and so forth. Redesign the items by adding some gore into it. Send out free invitations to your regulars. Come out with humorous eye catching flyers. This year I am developing a doorknob flyer shaped like a white ghost and I will hang it on our room guest doors in the afternoons. This will certainly catch their attention when they return to their rooms in the evenings.

Inexpensive, Tasteful and Easy Halloween Decoration for your Restaurant

In my Halloween Promotion Idea Article a year ago, “Restaurant Promotion Idea #15 – Halloween Specials”. I pointed out that there are a plenty of Halloween Home decorating tips in the World Wide Web that you could use in your restaurant or pub. These days my favourite site for searching decorations is Pinterest. Merely go to their search bar and type your search keywords and press enter.

For me I save most of the interesting web page in Pockets, so as I can go through it later. Below are some sites of which I have found really interesting and I am going to make use of some of their ideas cause they are simple to do as well as inexpensive.
