Running a Restaurant/Business cards Dropbox for customers.


Dear Victor

Do you feel it could be useful to have a Central Business cards Dropbox Or on each Dining table for customers?.


What I would suggest is that you solicit the assistance of an interior designer to help you create the "look and feel" you want to achieve in your dining space. I am flattered and happy to give you my opinions on your decor, but they are just that; my opinions and as I do have a great deal of experience in building great restaurants, my field of expertise is primarily based in operation and culinary execution.

That being said, my opinion is that depending on your concept I would ask what function would a business card drop off serve your business? Are you looking to create an email database of customers you could then market to? If so, I think there may be less obvious ways to do that such as offering social media discounts, newsletter sign-up discounts, etc. If your objective is to establish your location as a business meeting place, I would attempt to create a word of mouth companion such as offering corporate discounts, discounts off parties of 5 or more, etc.

Hope this is helpful.
