From New York Bagels to New York Pizza, Now is the Time to Offer Starving Students Discounts!
Spring Break is officially over, students have been back at school for a couple of weeks and in just a couple more, they’ll be facing their final year-end exams. And while students are starving all year long, now is the time that they’ll be having cram sessions with friends, all-night study sessions, and when they’ll be too busy hitting the books to think about things like cooking. And your restaurant can capitalize on that need.
Don’t think students will be too busy to still hunt for the best deals being offered, though. If your restaurant is in an area with a lot of others, you’ll need to offer bargain deals on your New York pizza dough, and really knock down the prices on your specialty items, such as Tasti Grain gluten free pizza. Usually knocking 25 per cent off at first is good, or offering two-for-one deals that an entire study group can enjoy. And remember, it’s not just late night snacks those students will need, but breakfast too. Also remember to discount menu items such as New York bagels and other breakfast food.
Remember to offer the discount to students, and to students only. You want to offer a deal, but not lose all your profit. Make sure you ask for student ID to be presented before giving the final total.
