February 24, 2023
For Resquared users looking to connect with local restaurant owners, email outreach can be an effective way to establish relationships and explore potential partnerships. However, crafting the perfect email can be daunting, especially if you're unsure where to begin. While we offer smart templates that will cater to the owner, whether you're a landlord rep, tenant rep, or marketing agency, you can still take it a step further with more personalization that is sure to impress them!
In this blog, we'll explore three tips that Resquared users can use when doing email outreach to local restaurant owners. These tips will help you craft effective emails that are more likely to grab the attention of busy restaurant owners and build lasting connections with them.
1. Make It Specific To The Type Of Restaurant
One effective way to personalize your emails is to mention the recipient's restaurant type in the subject line and body of the email. This approach shows that you have taken the time to research their business and are genuinely interested in what they have to offer.
For instance, in the example above, we're reaching out to a Greek restaurant to let them know about a space that is open in a shopping center. By specifying the restaurant type specifically, it would show the owner or recipient that it is a unique email and not being blasted. In the body of the email, you can further personalize the message by highlighting how your vacancy would be perfect for them.
2. Read Their "About Us" On Their Website
Another way to personalize emails to local restaurant owners is by mentioning information from their "About Us" page and their restaurant history in the body of the email. This approach can be particularly effective if you are reaching out to a well-established restaurant with a rich history.
By acknowledging their contributions to the local community and their unique story, you demonstrate that you have taken the time to research their business and have a genuine interest in working with them. In addition, highlighting specific achievements or milestones in the restaurant's history can be a great way to start a conversation and build a positive rapport.
3. Eat At The Restaurant and Let Them Know!
If you're looking to maximize your tailoring, going to a local restaurant and experiencing the atmosphere and food firsthand is a great way to personalize your outreach efforts. By actually visiting the restaurant and enjoying a meal, you can gain a better understanding of their business and tailor your email accordingly.
For example, you can mention specific dishes that you enjoyed or the ambiance of the restaurant that made your visit memorable. Including these details in your email can help to establish a personal connection with the owner and show that you are genuinely interested in working with them. Additionally, by visiting the restaurant in person, you can learn more about the owner's vision for their business.
