What's On Your Bulletin Board?

May 25, 2008
Getting the word out is one of the hardest things to do for any business owner. But when you're running a busy and successful restaurant, it gets all the more difficult. In order to make sure your employees and your guests know what's changing in your store, you might want to invest in a simple piece of communication technology -- a bulletin board. Sounds too easy, right? You might be surprised at how useful this piece of cork really is.

Employees Know What's Going On

When your menu changes, would you rather talk to each individual employee on their own or would you rather post up the changes in the employee timecard area and know that you've saved yourself time while also educating your crew? The answer seems pretty simple. You can hang calendars, schedules, and even menu changes on the bulletin board, helping everyone stay up to date on their jobs as well as on what's expected of them. You can also allow employees to post notes to other employees on the board to help facilitate discussions about shift changes.

Customers Know What's Going On

But a bulletin board in your entryway is a great way to help customers see if your restaurant is for them. By posting your menu, the prices, and your daily specials, people can easily look at this area, make a decision and either leave or get a table. Many restaurants now put a glass enclosed bulletin board on the exterior of their building to accomplish these tasks. Some people who are in the area might not be ready to eat just yet, but having the knowledge of the restaurant will help them make plans for later.

Fun Ways to Use a Bulletin Board

You can also use a bulletin board to highlight special employees or events at your restaurant. Perhaps you have a charity event that you want guests to come to or you might want to showcase a special guest or entertainment group that's going to be coming to town. Try to make this board exciting and new each week to keep people coming back to see what else you can offer them. Make sure the items posted are colorful and also clearly legible. You can also use laminated pieces of paper to use again and again, instead of printing new signage.

Your bulletin board can do all the talking for you -- and that's a relief. It's much easier that talking to everyone individually or trying to coerce employees into a long drawn out meeting.
