Ravenous Facebook post on Saratoga Springs Facebook Page

Restaurant’s Takeout Business Increased Through Effective Social Media Campaign

We recommended a visual social media promotion that gave locals a reason to purchase while reminding them that they could still enjoy their favorite crepes and frites at home.

How do you market your restaurant when you can’t invite anyone inside? That is the reality that restaurants across the nation are facing during the COVID-19 pandemic. Ravenous, a chef-run restaurant in Saratoga specializes in crepes and pomme frites. When New York State mandated all restaurants shift to take-out only, sales quickly dropped, and Ravenous turned to Mannix Marketing for ideas.

The Results

  • 37,000 Reached
  • 55,883 Impressions

Increasing Exposure Utilizing Saratoga Springs’ Influencer Network on Facebook

The strategic post tapped into the emotion of missing some of Ravenous’ favorite foods, and a reason to purchase their takeout by offering 15% off.

The link for online ordering was prominently featured in two spots. The visual reinforced the restaurant’s great staff and their loyal and happy customers.  Previous diners were quick to comment with their support, attesting to the quality of the food. This attracted new customers who were excited to try Ravenous for the first time.  After the promotion, Ravenous saw a major spike in takeout orders and business.

I have been working with Mannix Marketing and Saratoga.com for many years now. They have a great ability to help drive business to my website and restaurant and consistently outperform other platforms in the region. Recently, the ‘temporary normal’ hit and their team was ready and waiting to help in any way they could! It started with a fantastic Facebook promo (it reached 37,000 people) that got us out of the gate quickly and the continued support online has been awesome.
