Design of the Week: Happy Valentine’s Day Flyer + 3 Promotion Tips

happy valentines day flyer

It’s just a month until Valentine’s Day, a busy night for restaurants. This week’s design features a Happy Valentine’s Day flyer reminiscent of a box of chocolates. Update it in a flash with the Menu Editor or select another template from our Valentine’s Menu & Flyers library.

Here are a few promotion ideas for your Valentine’s success:

  1. Host an un-Valentine’s evening. Try Friday, February 11th. Make a big deal about it – press release, email to customer list, Facebook, Twitter, four walls.
  2. Read the review sites for the most common complaints about V-Day and turn the complaints into a positive promotion. Something fun like, “We promise you won’t see heart-shaped ice in your wine.” Or, “We promise she won’t whine about the wine.” You could have your or a wine sommelier visit all the tables to give guests an education in what wines they should order to suit their tastes.
  3. Partner with a jeweler or other business for your promotion. A dozen roses for all the ladies from a florist. Sell a prix fixe dinner option with $10 of it going toward a raffle for a nice piece of jewelry or a weekend away for two in a nearby town.
