We Speak RestaurantSM

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, Taste of NY, New York One, AMNY, etc. We reach out to bloggers like RestaurantGirl, Grub Street and hit websites such as Eater.com and Edible Publications 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.

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

COUNSEL
Based on our decades-long, on-the-ground experience working with businesses large and small, we offer an insider's perspective into what works and what doesn't with respect to concept ideation, operations, management and customer experience. With over 25 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.
