As we continue the year into the colder months, restaurants are starting to rally around a new initiative: BYOB. No, they aren’t encouraging customers to bring their own beer or bring their own booze – but rather their own blankets.
Depending on where you live, many restaurants are looking for creative ways to extend their outdoor seating season, because, well, #COVID. Since most indoor dining rooms are still not able to operate at 100% capacity, establishments are investing in propane heaters and temporary outdoor coverings, online ordering and carry out options, and now even snuggly sweaters and custom blankets!
With this BYOBlanket initiative, restaurants are creating cozy fall and winter friendly outdoor seating areas and encouraging their customers to bring their own “going-out” throw.
If you are a restaurant owner, do not miss this major branding opportunity! Provide your customers with their go-to outdoor blanket customized with your logo. You’ll help keep them warm during this chilly part of the year, while they wear your restaurant draped over their shoulders!
