Our customers always love this promotion. I feel it gets people in on a slow month and sets us up for success the rest of the year. Our party book is filling up much quicker than usual, which I attribute to our recognition with the Red Envelopes.

We are a small, independent local restaurant ran by my husband and myself. This is the second year we have used “Red Envelopes”. We give the envelopes out in December for return in January. Our sales in January have increased. In fact, January is one of our top sales months for the year.

Secrets from other restaurant owners who have used this promotion:

  • Highlight the lowest prize on the envelope, but don’t include any certificates for that amount. People don’t like winning the lowest prize.

  • Have 1 big prize to give away that gets people excited, such as a Flat Screen TV, iPad, Trip, Sporting or Concert Tickets, and take pictures when you give it to them.

  • Simple prizes to give away are Free appetizers, desserts, beverages, percentages off, BOGO, gift cards, etc. You pick the prizes that work best for your business.
