What We Do

Working with signature restaurants since 1992, the team behind Metro Restaurant Marketing aims to build client reputations and revenues through thoughtful strategies, deep media relationships, social media savvy, e-smarts and client partnering.

The Basic Package

PUBLIC RELATIONS
Includes marketing your news (promotions, events, menu changes, holiday offerings, etc.) to metropolitan media such as the New York Times, Daily News, New York Magazine, TimeOut, The New York Post, Gotham, Avenue, etc. We reach out to bloggers like RestaurantGirl, StrongBuzz and hit websites such as Eater.com for additional exposure. To that end, we monitor Yelp, Zagat, Urbanspoon and OpenTable and alert you to comments both positive and negative that can help manage customer relations. We can also set up Foursquare campaigns and liaison with your key staff.

FACEBOOK
It's not enough to just have a Facebook page. Facebook marketing is more important than ever. We run 60 business pages, over 30 Facebook ad campaigns (strongly recommended), and create dynamic pages that push exclusive content and promote interaction.

COUNSEL
How does an operator know the difference between the advantages of Groupon vs. Gilt vs. Living Social? What constitutes a good promotion? We can help explain and advise. With over 20 years of experience representing restaurants, we have insights into the business — and the marketing of concepts and promotions. We have indeed, "been there, done that" and are happy to share our observations with you.

FACE TIME
We commit to a minimum of four visits per year (quarterly) inasmuch as all our work is conducted via email and phone. We are also always ready to Skype!

STATUS REPORTS
All clients receive detailed monthly status reports describing press placements, work performed, work to be performed as well as social media analysis.


Popular Additional Services to the Basic Package
