Family Day is a statutory holiday in several provinces in Canada, including BC, Ontario, Alberta, and Saskatchewan. It is a day for families to spend quality time together and engage in fun activities.  For café and restaurant owners, holidays presents an excellent opportunity to boost sales and profits by creating special promotions and events that cater to families. In this blog post, we will provide tips and strategies on how to leverage Family Day to drive sales and profits in your café or restaurant in 2024.

  1. Plan Ahead:

One of the most important things you can do to ensure the success of your Family Day promotions is to plan ahead. Start by setting a clear objective for what you want to achieve on this day. For example, you might want to increase total customers, increase average ticket sales, or promote a new menu item.

Once you have established your goals, create a marketing plan that outlines your strategy. This plan should include the channels you will use to promote your café or restaurant, such as social media, email marketing, and print advertising. You should also create a timeline for when you will launch your promotions and when they will end.

  1. Create Family-Friendly Menus:

To attract more customers to your café or restaurant on Family Day, you need to create menus that appeal to both children and adults. In a Café, make sure you have a mix of fun and healthy kids beverages that will appeal to children and young adults. In a Restaurant, consider offering special menus that feature items that are easy for kids to eat and that parents will enjoy too.  You could also offer family-style meals that encourage sharing and interaction

  1. Offer Special Deals and Discounts:

To entice families to choose your business over others on Family Day, consider offering special deals and discounts. For example, you could offer a discount on group or combo meals, or you could offer a free dessert or drink for every adult meal purchased.  In your Café, you could offer a free children’s drink with every adult drink purchases at full price or a small treat for free.  You could also create a loyalty program that rewards families for their repeat business, so you create a loyal customer all year!

  1. Host Family-Friendly Events:

Another way to attract families to your business on Family Day is to host children-friendly events. You could host a movie night or a craft workshop that parents and kids can enjoy together. You could also create a play area for children or provide entertainment such as face painting or balloon twisting.

  1. Partner with Local Businesses:

To increase your reach and attract more families to your café or restaurant, consider partnering with local businesses.  For example, you could partner with a local toy store to offer a discount on toys for kids who visit your business during Family Day and cross-promote each other!  You could also partner with a local movie theater to offer discounted movie tickets to families who dine at your restaurant, or grab drinks at your café.
