Tips for a successful spring

1. Upgrade your outdoor space
Dust off the patio furniture, install flower boxes, or invest in those new umbrellas you've been eyeing. It's time to prep your outdoor space.
2. Utilize Tock’s ’Multi-Experience Tables’ feature
Now it's possible to offer that March Madness package alongside a Women Winemaker flight, so you can maximize what sells best and keep your dining room filled.
3. Don’t give no-shows a chance
Utilize prepaid reservations, deposits, or credit card holds to ensure your guests show up.
4. Check in with your staff
Remember to check in with your team amongst the hustle and bustle. Feedback is helpful for your business, and it makes your team feel valued.
5. Make time for spring cleaning
Deep clean your establishment, get organized, and take inventory where necessary.
6. Refresh your marketing materials
Invest in new photos, spruce up your Tock page, and make sure your website is up to date with correct hours and information.
