Delivery Approaches to Consider

Here are some tools to consider, but feel free to propose new ideas and tools to get the word out about the restaurant’s new location.

  • Social media
    • The company currently uses Facebook and has a business page where it regularly post specials and interact with the community.
    • The company does not currently use other social media, but it is open to expanding its reach.
  • Free local newspaper (Suburbia Weekly Buzz)
    • Suburbia Weekly Buzz is a weekly local newspaper that covers news about city politics, entertainment, and community interests. The newspaper allows paid advertisements and features for businesses. It is available for free at local businesses, including restaurants and grocery stores. It is well-known and read by a diverse audience.
  • Paid local newspaper (City Gazette)
    • The daily newspaper is available in stores and offers digital subscriptions to its online edition.
    • Readers are mostly middle-aged to older adults.
  • Company website/blog
    • The company has a simple website with its mission in the “About Us” section, as well as hours and a menu. Stakeholders are open to expanding resources on the website to better connect to the community and build brand awareness, if the website would be an appropriate communication platform.

Economic Environment

  • Suburbia already has one Italian restaurant that markets itself as “fine Italian dining.” It is located on the outskirts of town and is very expensive. The restaurant appeals mostly to older, wealthy people in the community.
  • The area is in a phase of significant economic and middle-class growth. The city is located in an area with many old textile mills that are being bought and converted to office space by technology companies. This is creating jobs and stimulating the local economy.
