Food Week

If your town's business association is planning a week to highlight your restaurant along with your neighboring businesses, the first step is a good marketing campaign. We've said it a million times, but it bears repeating; video is an essential part of any marketing campaign. Don't leave this tool in your toolbox!

Show, Don't Tell

Marketing is just a way of telling a story. And the first rule of storytelling is "show, don't tell." If you want people to come to your restaurant, like the Office of Economic Development did for their Restaurant Week, then you need to entice people with beautiful footage of the food. The shots in the video above such as the steam rising off the plate, or the sauce being drizzled over the tacos make the food look so irresistable your kitchen will have to work doubletime to handle all the business you'll get! You can see just how valuable video is for restaurants, especially if you're trying to promote your restaurant for special event.

We're always excited to work on restaurant projects. We've worked with restaurants for decades covering everything from grand openings to special events.
