Your title had 'businesses' in it. Get some menus and marketing material printed up with some business cards and start hitting the office buildings. Corporate meetings are often catered to prevent disruption of the discussions.1 of 1 people found this helpful
I advise this because we have our Board Meetings in a Tea Room at an Antique Mall, all of the food service is there so we don't have to break or leave for lunch.
How about an Open House where you would send out invitations to the people you are trying to target. Serve a representative sample of your menu and offer an incentive if they come to the restaurant or use the catering service within a certain period of time.
Thanks I will take all your advice and report back on how things is going. I wish I did try this before.
