Every holiday deserves some special promotions around your cafe, so don’t forget to celebrate St. Patrick’s day on March 17th. Offer some specials that will leave your patrons feeling the luck of the Irish!
You can orchestrate a scavenger hunt to find the “pot of gold” hidden around your cafe! Be creative with the clues, and try to make it so those interacting aren’t intrusive on customers who just want to relax! The lucky winner can be rewarded with a coupon for a free cup of coffee everyday for a week, or a gift card to your cafe of an amount you deem appropriate!
You can use green food coloring to get festive with any of your beverages, or create green whipped cream to give a nice finish to your specialty drinks!
Host a St. Patrick’s day trivia night, and be sure to include fun facts about the holiday and other Irish culture! Offer gift cards to the winning person/team, and prizes for most creative team name or best dressed competitor.
It’s always a good idea to offer BOGO specials on signature beverages like an Irish Cream Latte! You can also offer free shots of Irish Cream syrup to regular drip coffee to get your customers in the Irish spirit!
Throw a “Leprechaun Contest” and have patrons, or your baristas, show off their best leprechaun garb! The best dressed leprechaun can be rewarded with specialty beverages or a gift card of your choosing!
