Warmer weather is well on its way! It’s time to consider how you can transition your location into a summer hot spot. Below are a few of our suggestions for a successful summer at your establishment.
Beat the Heat with Skill Gaming
Advertise your skill gaming machines as being an oasis from the heat and opportunity for your patrons to cool off. They can sit back, relax in the AC and win big!
If you have the space available outside, assemble a couple cornhole sets for your customers enjoy some fun in the sun.
Celebrate summer with a themed Hawaiian night. Encourage everyone to dress up in Hawaiian outfits and serve Hawaiian drinks like Piña Coladas and Mai Tais. To entice more customers to participate consider offering a discount for people who are dressed within the theme.
Team Trivia Night
Host a team trivia night and award the winning team with a free round of drinks or voucher for another night at your establishment. Some suggestions include: sports trivia, TV show trivia, alcohol trivia, etc. For more help on how to host a trivia night read our blog: Increase Foot Traffic by Hosting a Trivia Night in Your Establishment.
Bring Your Pets
If you’re able to, encourage customers to bring their furry friend along with them as a plus one and join the fun for a night.
Set your TouchTunes to play summer jams
If you have a karaoke machine, consider hosting it outside so everyone can enjoy the weather.
How to get the word out about your summer events
Use a Hashtag
Using a hashtag has a mulititude of advantages for your business. Hashtags give you added clout with your customer interaction. For instance, #MargaritaMonday, #TequilaTuesday, #WineWednesday, #BobsBarisBest, etc.
Create a Facebook Event
Create a Facebook Event from your Business Facebook Page to help spread the word. Once a customer clicks “I’m In” or “Interested,” his/her friends will see the event in their newsfeed.

Posters are a great way to encourage your current customers to stop in at times they normally wouldn’t.
