While dining in is temporarily on hold, takeout and curbside pickup are king. Promoting these services is easy with online marketing and #TakeoutTuesday can give your location the boost it needs for a mid-week bump in business. Use #TakeoutTuesday on social media to show your customers that your restTakeoutTuesdayaurant is #TourismStrongDE!

In addition to using a simple hashtag, try adding some of these ideas to your online marketing strategy. 

  • Join the Delaware Division of Small Business’s #TakeoutTuesday contest. See details here!
  • Offer a special deal or promotion
  • Share photos of your employees giving back. Examples include serving healthcare workers, essential workers or children
  • Post a video of a chef preparing or highlighting a signature dish
