Listed below are some tips in creating a restaurant lunch coupon. Take note that the tips provided are not limited to restaurant lunch coupons, but for all other types of restaurants as well. Restaurant coupons are not one of the most effective forms of advertising and promotion, so use them to your advantage.
Compared to email signatures, restaurant lunch coupons are more visually appealing since there are no limit on the designs that can be applied in a coupon. Unlike an email signature where the text is much more important than the designs and color, practically any design can be implemented in the restaurant lunch coupon.
Be careful though when using various colors and imagery for your restaurant lunch coupon, as too much designs will make the coupon. But you certainly want to put some creative touches in the coupon so that customers will be able to keep it as souvenirs long after they’ve already used the coupon.
The restaurant lunch coupon should not be all about style though. It certainly needs substance as well. Don’t forget to indicate the purpose of the restaurant lunch coupon as this is important in how the coupon will be used by the customers. If the text or the purpose of the coupon is not clearly written in the lunch coupon, then the coupon would lose its purpose entirely.You may also see meal vouchers.
Even if you included a number of imagery or colors in the coupon, list down the coupon’s purpose as clearly as possible. You can make the text large as you desire, but also make sure to create a balance between the text size and the designs/colors being used.You may also see payment vouchers.
Depending on the promotion or marketing campaign of the restaurant, the basic information regarding the promotion should be clearly listed in the lunch coupon. Here is a standard format for a restaurant lunch coupon: front face of the coupon should include promotional slogan while the back face should include further details of the promotion.
Do not try to overstuff everything in the front face of the coupon. Use a one-phrase or one-sentence slogan to easily capture the attention of the customer. If the customer has concerns regarding the coupon, he can always refer at the back of the coupon or ask from restaurant personnel for assistance.You may also see wine menu examples.
It is highly suggested that you use the restaurant’s theme in the coupon not only for uniformity and consistency purposes but for the restaurant to have a distinct character and identity toward its customers. Imagine a restaurant having a Chinese theme (i.e. Chinese-inspired lanterns and ornaments, red and yellow colored interior, round tables, dragon paintings and pencil sketches, etc.) but the design implemented in their marketing materials focus on American colors (red, white, and blue) and symbolism (eagle, hot dogs and hamburgers, Statue of Liberty, etc.). The contrast basically does not fit the theme of the Chinese restaurant.You may also see takeout menu designs.
The lunch coupon does not have to use the entire theme of the restaurant. Pick the existing theme or concept you like best and apply them in the coupon. Picking a theme leads us to the next tip in creating a restaurant lunch coupon.
Using only one design for your restaurant lunch coupon will prove to be disadvantageous for the restaurant in the long run. This is because competition in the restaurant industry is always high. Restaurants operating in the same city or area are always looking to serve the best food, gain the most customers, and attain the highest profits. And the only way to achieve those three goals is to ramp up marketing activities, of which one activity relates to creating and distributing lunch coupons.You may also see spring voucher designs.
You simply cannot limit the lunch coupon to a single design. Even if you are using a single theme for the restaurant, you can always choose from multiple designs or images from that theme. Printing and distribution of the coupons don’t have to be costly as well, as you will be not giving out the coupons to all of your customers. Additionally, customers who will be receiving the coupons will definitely enjoy looking at the designs you created or implemented in the coupon.You may also see free vouchers.
Establishing a fast-food restaurant is one of the easiest methods if you are planning to own your own restaurant in the future. There is a large disparity between the quality of food served in a fast-food chain and a Michelin star restaurant. But it is still food nonetheless, and customers still line up by the hundreds just to order their favorite fast-food dishes. You may already be aware that the world’s most profitable restaurants are fast-food chains.You may also see thank you vouchers.
Without further ado, here are the most successful fast-food restaurants around the world (as of 2018).
The colonel starts off this list with Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) being the second largest restaurant chain in the world. As of this year, KFC has over 20,000 stores in 118 countries. Founded in 1930 by Harland Sanders or “Colonel Sanders” as he started to refer himself to increase the restaurant’s marketing presence, KFC is famously known for its pressure fried chicken which uses 11 secret herbs and spices. We are not exactly sure if the famous fast-food chain actually uses 11 herbs and spices, but Sanders repeatedly stated that the 11 ingredients are quite common in the household. The secret recipe is safely kept in KFC’s headquarters in Kentucky (USA).You may also see typography menu examples.

Dairy Queen, as the name suggests, originally sold ice cream in the late 1930s.

McDonald’s is THE largest fast-food restaurant in the world, with over 37,000 stores across 119 countries. Statistics indicate that an average of 68 million customers visit McDonald’s on a daily basis. The fast-food giant would not have been in the position it’s currently in today if it wasn’t for shrewd business moves by Ray Kroc, who was also responsible for changing the restaurant’s logo to the arching “M” it is famously known today.

Hamburgers are McDonald’s main sellers, but every item on its menu (fried chicken, chicken sandwiches, french fries, pasta, pie, sundae, etc.) is very popular nonetheless.We hope you found this article to be informative as well as helpful when you will be creating your own restaurant lunch coupon.You may also see drink coupons.
