Mobile messaging for restaurants

Increase bookings and customer satisfaction with text messaging

Text messaging allows restaurants and cafés to engage on a personal level with customers at any time. Restaurants are able to target specific groups of consumers with specially tailored deals, providing customers with the best value for money possible, and increasing their loyalty to a particular restaurant or brand at the same time. The compiling and sorting of customer data in the Textlocal system can be used in a number of exciting ways, from sending offers to customers on their birthday, to updating them as to when their favourite seasonal dish is back on the menu; the options are limitless!

A key strength of the SMS business service offered by Textlocal is that it is so unobtrusive; customers need only receive offers that are of particular value to them, and they are able to peruse marketing materials as and when they want to.

Our SMS service is also fast, cost-effective and highly accountable, all great attributes for any restaurant. And because Textlocal offer more than just a basic 160 character text message, we're full of ideas of how to stand out from the crowd with feature-rich content to boost profits and keep your customers coming back.

Reach out to numerous people quickly and all at once

Since our football club was introduced to Textlocal, we haven't looked back. Running a football club is busy business and telling a vast number of people the same thing can be quite a task! With Textlocal I am able to draft a succinct email with the desired message and just send, it's that easy. The Textlocal website itself allows me to check our account details (credits remaining), top-up credit (a selection of amounts), update/copy parts of contact lists and check message delivery and you have an account handler to assist with any needs. A Brilliant service, what more can one ask for?!
