Restaurant Marketing Ideas for November

Restaurant owners and operators have a lot to be thankful for with a bountiful feast of marketing ideas in November.

For food related marketing, restaurants can explore traditional and contemporary recipes for Banana Pudding Lovers Month, Georgia Pecan Month, Peanut Butter Lovers Month and World Vegan Month.

The month also provides opportunities to help children nationwide, and to show appreciation for veterans and active duty military.

November is National Adoption Month and includes National Adoption Day.  Your restaurant can make a difference in young lives by collecting donations for and by raising awareness of the more than 123,000 children in foster care waiting to find permanent, loving families.

America celebrates Veterans Day on Monday, November 11th this year, and many restaurants will be offering discounts and free food to both veterans and active duty military in appreciation for their service.

Each year, more restaurant chains are opening on Thanksgiving Day to serve family and friends.  Opportunities include dine-in and carryout holiday meals.  Thanksgiving is also a great time to promote special items such as pies and cakes.

On Black Friday, even the most hardcore deal seekers will be worn down after camping out in front of retail chains and living off of trail mix and potato chips.  Knowing that Black Friday warriors are hungry for a great deal, many restaurants will be serving up tasty deals of their own.

Don’t forget to encourage local customers to dine with you on Small Business Saturday.

For beverage marketing, November offers Cappuccino Day, Carbonated Beverages with Caffeine Day, Espresso Day and Harvey Wallbanger day.

November also serves up special days for Cashews, Cranberry Relish, Deviled Eggs, French Fried Clams, French Toast, Homemade Bread, Nachos, Sandwiches, Sardines, Scrapple, Spicy Guacamole and Stuffing.

Restaurants can also sweeten things up a bit on days celebrating Bavarian Cream Pies, Cakes, Candy, Indian Pudding, Lemon Cream Pies, Mousse, Parfaits, Peanut Butter Fudge, Sundaes and Vanilla Cupcakes.

And don’t forget Cook Something Bold and Pungent Day, and National Fast Food Day.
