Hello from Maine

Hi everyone!

I am the marketing manager and graphics guy for a large independent restaurant in Lewiston, Maine. Yes, there are enough people up her to support a large independent restaurant, no we do not have any moose right outside our door, and no we are not a part of Canada. :smileylol:

Now that we have that out of the way, I am looking forward to interacting with you somehow on this board.

My main objective here is to find "best practices" for restaurants, customer retention, sending out coupons & promotions...things like that.

I'm a graphic designer by nature and have been doing that in a marketing environment for over (gulp) 25 years. Within the past 7-10 years I have become more active in the marketing aspect of things and have grown my knowledge as social media has grown.

Thanks for reading and I'll see you around!

Re: Hello from Maine

Hi Cory, good luck with your marketing. Being an independent restaurant do you find yourself competing against any large franchises?

Hi Joseph:

There are chain restaurants throughout the Lewiston/Auburn area that diners can frequent (Applebee's and the like). I would  say that we are in competition in the sense that we both offer food and dining, however I feel that chain restaurants like that do not offer the same dining experience or ambiance that our facility does. I don't know if that answers the question or not?. :smileyhappy:
