Business benefits of being a kids friendly restaurant

Making your restaurant "kids friendly" could increase traffic up to 25%

It's true - the youngest guests can become your best guests! You probably are wondering how this can be possible! How can they become your best guests when the average child, depending on age, eats two or three times less than adults? Well, they can! Let us explain to you this incredible power that these little creatures have – the power that you can very easily turn into a real business.

First and foremost it's important to understand why children are an interesting target group of restaurant guests:

  • Kids are strongly influenced by the habits of their parents because parents often decide to eat where their little ones feel comfortable and happy.
  • Family with children often do not stay for a long time in your restaurant or do not visit it at all if your restaurant is not kids friendly.
  • Restaurants are often used for celebrations such as kid’s birthday parties or for family gatherings.

Consequently, children and their spending power should not be underestimated. Children are some of the best consumers that can become your best guests if their parents consider that your catering facility is good enough for whole family.

“Kids friendly” restaurants have become very popular

Restaurants that are considered as "kids friendly" are playing an important role in our society today. Parents are searching online for ” kids and family friendly” restaurants when deciding to spend money for lunch in restaurants - and will go there more often. Maybe this is the reason why the number of families who eat out has increased by 15 % in last 20 years.

Kid’s special menus

It's a simple idea to offer a special menu just for kids and make it attractive both in terms of food, but also as entertainment while they wait for food to arrive. In this way you will boost the value of your restaurant offer for children.

Creative ideas for kids in restaurants

Children want to play and to express their creativity! You do not have to be a parent to know how kids are impatient, especially when they are hungry! Keeping them entertained takes the pressure of the parents and makes the whole dining experience far more relaxed and enjoyable. No need to rush badly behaved children home as quickly as possible.

Kid’s birthday parties

Lots of restaurants are now very popular for children's parties. Add some entertainment in the form of a fun activity chef's hat, activity or party bags along with colourful branded tabletop party ware. The children have a fantastic time, no clearing up required by the parents and it's a lucrative alternative market for restaurant owners.

Remember: if the kids are not happy in your restaurant their parents would not be either. The key is to find a balance in order to meet the restaurant offer for your adult and small guests and you will be happy to see the effect on your bottom line.
