How to Prepare Your Business for the Holiday Rush

Elif Oztuna

The holiday season is coming with all its joy and excitement! You can make your business shine like a diamond during the holiday rush with little tricks and a good prep session. Here are some useful tips from us that will help you to be 100% ready for the holidays.

Start with a To-Do List

For anything you do, the most important aspect that brings success is organization. If you prioritize your tasks and list them, it would be hassle-free to get through the most difficult times. After you finish listing your tasks, you can distribute them among your staff members.

Double-Check Your Inventory

Going out of clean shot glasses or your most popular cocktail’s ingredients during the busiest hour would be a total nightmare. It is a great idea to check all of your inventory at least a month before the holiday rush. Then you would have enough time to restock all the inventory that is running low. 

Gift Your Loyal Customers

Every minute of your business is valuable for building customer loyalty. You have to seize every opportunity. Also, the holiday season is the time we remember the greatness of the feeling when you are giving & sharing the joy. So there isn’t a better time to make your bonds stronger with your loyal customers. You can prepare a little gift card for them, or you can simply reward them with complimentary drinks for the holidays.

Create the Most Efficient and Delicious Holiday Cocktail Menu

During the holiday rush, it will be all about speed and efficiency when it comes to preparing the cocktails. You will have to serve maybe hundreds of customers in a very short period, and they will be picky about the taste & strength of your cocktails. You can think about preparing ready-to-drink cocktails ahead of time, or you can have a look at our special holiday cocktail recipes right here: Holiday Cocktails

Train Your Staff and Show Appreciation

Holiday rush will give you a headache if you have new and inexperienced staff as well as unhappy employees in your team. Consider a quick staff meeting with basic training for the holiday season. Listen to your employees if any of their basic needs are unfulfilled. Let your staff know that you welcome their feedback and value their ideas.  Remember, your employees are the heart of your success. Keep them happy and informed at all times.

Reach Out to Local Businesses and Foundations

There is going to be a party or a gathering in every corner during the holiday rush. If you can reach out to local businesses and let them know your venue will be available for a group get-together, you can increase your revenue and traffic. You can create a holiday event post   on your social media outlets and boost it to expand your reach. Social media is a great tool to use for developing a larger customer base.

Stay Positive

No matter what difficulties you encounter with, try to keep your positive attitude. You can solve any problem with patience and calmness. Try not to stress out because when you are stressed out, it will immediately be reflected on your employees and chaos will be inevitable.  Following these useful tips can help you and your business stay organized, efficient, and positive during the most profitable season.
