Amazing Ideas To Make Your Restaurant More Attractive

Image source: travelandleisure.com
Dressing up your restaurant is an endeavor that provides both excitement, and, if done correctly, profit. Making your restaurant stand out and apart from competitors can spell the difference between being one of those establishments that close down before the sixth month or one that people would fall in line to experience. Let’s take a look at some things that you can add to make your resto look more enticing.

Theme

Having a restaurant theme may be a great idea, especially if the theme is the in thing. Since pop culture plays a huge part in consumers’ decisions, dressing up your resto to a certain theme can attract an entire fandom. Nowadays, restaurants have science fiction, or fantasy, or even superhero themes. Why? Because that’s what sells nowadays. Many restaurants are designed to match backgrounds in “The Lord of the Rings,” “Star Wars,” “Star Trek,” “Harry Potter,” and even other TV shows, complete with collectibles, memorabilia, and movie posters to enhance the experience.

Service

Back in the ‘50s, waitresses in short skirts served meals and beverages in parking lots while gliding around on roller skates. The consumers fell in love with them instantly. Following this trend, restaurant owners can offer something customers have never experienced before. I’ve been to establishments where the servers not only sing “Happy Birthday,” but they do so in a magnificent chorale style. I’ve also had entire menus rapped to me. Consumers are always looking for something new to fall in love with.

Farm-to-table in Wisconsin--A lifestyle

What is now a marketing campaign and movement around the US has always been the way things are in Wisconsin: a farm-to-table dining experience. With its natural surroundings and a thriving agriculture industry, Wisconsin prides itself with fresh and healthy produce served in homes and restaurants around the state.

To uphold this culture, many restaurants and markets in Wisconsin feature farm-to-table food. Annually, special farm-to-table dinners are organized to support the movement and t0 discuss local agriculture news, animal and environmental care, and the value of safe, fresh market produce.

The sustainability and social responsibility of farm-to-table practices are the reason why the movement has spread to other parts of the country. The emphasis is in supporting locally produced foods to support the municipality's economy, farmers, and food co-ops. Because of a more immediate source of food, there is less requirement for preservatives so the produce are more organic, healthy, and environmentally sustainable. The farm-to-table scene also eliminates long-distance transportation, reducing carbon emissions and fuel consumption.

Three Wisconsin Food Traditions You Have To Know

Wisconsin is known for its food and beer. The reason for its popularity is because many Wisconsinites stay true to certain food traditions that have remained for as long as anyone can remember. Having said that, it is important that any self-respecting foodie understand the three biggest Wisconsin food traditions.

Friday Fish Fry: What began as a Catholic religious following has now become a stable Wisconsin diet. When earlier European immigrants settled in the state, they adapted their cooking techniques to the local environment. Many avoided meat on Fridays during Lent and taverns began offering weekly fish fry. This was also another way for the taverns to make money during the prohibition. Eventually, the practice became so popular that almost all restaurants in Wisconsin offer fish every Friday.

The Beer Brat: One of the most recognizable foods Northeast Wisconsin is known for is the bratwurst. Many food enthusiasts in the area say the best way to eat them is grilled and soaked in onions and beer. There are many available recipes online, but as a general rule of thumb, great beer brats use enough beer to cover the meat (perhaps three to four cans or bottles of beer).

The Cheese Curds



: Wisconsin is known for its cheese curds. Why? Maybe it’s because there are many ways Wisconsinites like them. Some prefer them fresh, others fried. Either way, cheese curds have become somewhat of a delicacy here. These curds are made from pieces of baby cheddar that have not aged at all or gone through any form of processing. One of the reasons Wisconsin has the best cheese curds is because diners can eat them a mere 12 hours after they are made. Our curds are the freshest in the country.
