What is the most important aspect of the guest experience nowadays?

“How we’re making them feel. It’s applicable on so many levels, whether they had a good meal, mediocre meal, bad meal experience, whatever it’s going to be. I think that we’re we should always be focused on making them feel in a positive way. Every single person that that writes, comments, on our social media, DMs, emails, or review us, we respond to diligently. We take every single piece of feedback that we get very seriously. We all love when we have good news and praise that we can share, but sometimes those negative experiences we learn so much more from that kind of shapes up.

What successful strategies and tactics have you seen/tried?

“We try to surprise and delight. We’ll run like various campaigns where, ss a surprise for a certain amount of orders, we might give away extra dessert or cookies, or even a bouquet of flowers as a surprise.
