Easter Sunday means brisk business for breakfast and brunch at restaurants, especially for extensive buffets as families gather and celebrate. It is also a great opportunity for operators to announce limited-time offers, like a dish featuring ramps – a wild spring onion that resembles the scallion but with a flavor of its own.
Operators in non-commercial segments as well as restaurants should consider packaging complete family meals and to-go specials that can be ordered ahead of time or available as Grab-n-Go. Mimi’s Café, with locations across the southern United States, offers a three-course, Easter Ham Supper that serves six to eight guests for carryout. To-go packages with ham or turkey as a centerpiece are often promoted by restaurant chains and grocery stores at Easter, so you may want to add a twist that sets your offer apart from others with a free dessert, complementary drinks or a fun game for the family.
