Running a Restaurant/Business cards Dropbox for customers.


Dear Jeffrey

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


No. Don't clutter the tables with items that are only important for you. The table top is sacred guest territory. Put it on your guest checks to have guests leave their business card with their payment (and pick one or two cards a week for a free lunch or something).
