How to Maximize Restaurant and Bar Sales Through the 2018 Holiday Season

Christmas-champagne‘Tis the season for feasting, and if you’re in the bar/restaurant/foodservice business, you know the potential is huge for busy end-of-year sales and a momentum swing into 2018 Q1. Give your “per check” revenue a boost with effective displays, cross-promotions, and upsells for hungry, thirsty customers. They’re ready to order: give them more choices and increase sales at the same time…everybody wins!

Start by catching the holiday wave. According to the National Restaurant Association’s latest Restaurant Performance Index, sales trended upward in September and October, leading into a busy holiday season and a great time to create repeat customers. Show them some love and they’ll be back in 2019!

Don’t ignore your take-out customers! Especially during the holidays, people are in a hurry. If you want to grab your share of take-out revenue, your Takeout Menu Holders can play a vital part! Show them what’s good to-go with a Counter-top Acrylic Menu Holder.WFT Yogurt Shop 2

Put your seasonal promotions in the spotlight. Whether marketing a signature drink for the holidays or special winter comfort food dish, capturing attention can be tricky. Draw hungry eyes to your upsells with attractive Acrylic Sign Holders like this one. Clear acrylic over a black acrylic background with stylish metal standoffs makes a perfect, eye-catching showcase!

Make ‘em warm-n-cozy! There’s typically a post-holiday drop-off in business as holiday revelers return to routine and spend less after the Christmas season. Add a winter touch with your slicks and specials to keep customers coming back. Swivel base acrylic displays accentuate your décor and spin to reach more eyes and potential buyers!

Winter event promotions can help you stand out from the competition. While other establishments fall asleep in this area, you can capitalize! Customers still want to get out and have fun, regardless of weather. Extend an invitation to see live music or special events with literature displays…they WILL come!

Office Supplies and Giving Thanks for 6 this Thanksgiving

Office Supplies and Giving Thanks for 6 this Thanksgiving2018 has been quite a year. Doesn’t it seem like more than 9-1/2 months ago since the Eagles won the Super Bowl? A crazy year like this one gives us more reasons to pause and be grateful for all we have this Thanksgiving.

A collection of younger adult voices put their list together on a platform called Odyssey. Simple yet heartfelt and more meaningful than ever, their Top 6 went this way:

  1. Family…and appreciating those who surround you.
  2. Friends…always there for you, even when family is not.
  3. Opportunity to go to College…again, younger adults.
  4. Good Health…irreplaceable.
  5. A Home…never to be taken for granted.
  6. Food to Eat…for many, this is a luxury.

Around the office and in business applications, there are other things to be thankful for.

  1. Clear Sign Holders…especially valuable for busy holiday sales. Like pilgrims finding their way across the ocean, durable Acrylic Sign Holders point shoppers to spotlight specials.
  2. Poster Holders…for increased visibility in .100 premium thickness acrylic. Slanted back from countertop displays or wall-mounted with neodymium magnets, literature always gets noticed.
  3. Cubicle Sign Holders…now available in new designs, including a first with colored borders. Special events, promotions, and sales announcements really stand out!
  4. Name Plate Holders…for wall, desk, and cubicle displays. Several new options are available that were not last year, including border color alternatives and many with FREE perforated card stock included!
  5. Magnetic Sign Holders/Picture Frames…always in demand for the Holidays, now accentuated magnetically!
  6. Donation Boxes…maybe the most important on the list. The Holidays are when the giving spirit of generous people really shines. Acrylic Donation Boxes and Mini Donation Boxes always fill this time of year from charities to animal shelters bustling through the Season.

We hope we’ve given you something to consider for Thanksgiving. And don’t forget those who work to serve Thanksgiving Day, like emergency medical personnel, fire, police, and first responders, and certainly those in the military, always on guard.

Multi-Slot Cubicle Name Plate Holders, Number One in Cubicle Accessories!

PNHL T4 (On Location)2Did you know that the multi-use Swiss Army Knife has been around since 1890? It was originally purchased by the Swiss Army for soldiers to use both in opening canned food and disassembling rifles. The Modell 1890 had a blade, reamer, can opener, screwdriver, and grips made out of dark oak. Today, the Swiss Army Knife still epitomizes multi-functionality and superior craftsmanship.

That same principle and quality can also apply to inner-office name plate holders. New Multi-Tier Cubicle Name Plate Holders showcase up to five name plates and distinctive insert options, with patterns to add even more flair. And like the Swiss Army Knife, it all comes in one solid unit…or in this case, display.

Built to last in premium thickness acrylic, the new Multi-Slot Cubicle Name Plate Holder delivers maximum visual acuity in a choice of two, three, four, or five insert slots. Customizing the look with patterns and font choices really locks focus from even the busiest foot traffic.cubicle setting PNHLT4R

Easy to hang on cubicle and partition walls, consider the possibilities for usage in your floor layout. Name/Title templates are a given. But in addition to name, title, and/or department identification, you can also use this name plate holder display simultaneously for directions, like This Way, A-M & N-Z, Enter, and Exit. Multiple signage display functions all in one sturdy acrylic unit – perfect for Combination Suite Identification!

By the way, Swiss Army Knives are not available for customization (according to Wikipedia). But they have produced many different tool combinations over the years to suit more users. That includes hoof cleaners, fish scalers, magnifying lenses, and USB sticks!
