41 September Marketing Opportunities to Bring More Customers into Your Restaurant

With September just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about your fall marketing strategy. Luckily, the month of September is packed with many national holidays and events (from the obvious to less familiar), giving your customers plenty of good reasons to dine out and celebrate. Here’s a look at them.

The month begins with Labor Day (Sept. 2) and the preceding weekend when millions of Americans will be enjoying their last taste of summer and anticipated day off. According to a poll conducted by Harris Interactive, a leading international marketing research firm, Labor Day ranks number eight among the top 10 holidays for dining out in America.

September, in general, is also back to school time and the perfect opportunity for restaurants to draw in busy families whose hectic fall work and school schedules can make meal planning difficult. You may want to create special family meal deals to-go and enticing back-to-school specials that will appeal to working families and children.But beyond the obvious occasions like Labor Day and back to school season, September is also National Breakfast Month, National Chicken Month and National Organic Harvest Month, to name a few. That’s not to mention that September 15, alone, celebrates three national food events all in one day: National Double Cheeseburger Day, National Creme de Menthe Day and National Linguini Day!

So get creative and enjoy all of the special occasions to help give your bar or restaurant a boost into the fall. Here’s the complete list of September holidays and events to help you get started.
