Prepare for February holidays with Toast

Just when we thought the holidays were over, February sneaks up on us with a few more. Here are a few ways to get the most out of the short month and keep your guests engaged: 

  • Running a special for the Big Game? Our Toast Marketing template is the perfect way to  get the word out to your customers. Don’t have Toast Marketing? Get 3 months free* when you bundle Marketing + Loyalty. 

  • Speaking of the Big Game, you may be preparing to do a ton of deliveries. Integrate directly with 3rd party partners to help make things run as smoothly as possible, or add a commission-free delivery option to your Online Ordering to save on fees. 

  • Want to drive traffic through your door on Valentine’s Day? We’ve got a Toast Marketing template for that, too. Or help them find the perfect Valentine’s Day gift by suggesting a digital gift card from your restaurant. 

  • Incentivize guests to order takeout with a promo code. Single-use promo codes are now available to use with Online Ordering! Learn how to set up a promo code here.
