Like any business, restaurants can certainly benefit from free advertising. Even better than free advertising, though, is advertising that you are paid for. This is the value that stocking restaurant merchandise and promotional items in your restaurant can bring. Not only are you able to profit off the sales, any custom products such as branded coffee mugs and branded t-shirts that have your restaurant’s name and logo on them will serve as valuable advertising for your brand.
Of course, the key to finding the right promotional items is to choose products that fit naturally with your brand. For example, a coffee shop would naturally want to sell branded coffee mugs while a casual restaurant that is located in a tourist spot might have a lot of luck selling logo apparel such as branded t-shirts. With that in mind, here are five great promotional products to consider stocking in your restaurant.
1. One Bottle Wine Box
If your restaurant serves wine, selling wine boxes is a natural choice. This one bottle wine box is made using attractive and durable pine wood and is perfect for storing a special bottle of wine. The box comes with the option to include a rope handle attached to the top and the front of the box comes with a custom engraving to make for a promotional item that is sure to have a place of prominence in your customer’s home.
2. Four Piece Coaster Set
