How to Make Your Restaurant Kid-Friendly Online

How to Make Your Restaurant Kid-Friendly Online

Introduction to Family Dining

When it comes to dining out, families are looking for places where everyone, especially the little ones, can enjoy a great meal. But before they walk in the door, they're likely browsing online to find that perfect spot. Making your restaurant kid-friendly isn't just about having high chairs and a special menu; it starts online.

Easy Navigation for Busy Parents

Parents often multitask, and when they are searching for a restaurant, they want a website that is easy to navigate. Your website should have clear sections, one of which should be dedicated to the family dining experience. Ensure the online menu is easy to find and features the kid's menu prominently.

Engaging Kids' Menu Online

A fun, interactive online kids' menu can be a big draw. Consider adding pictures and interactive elements, such as games or coloring pages that can be downloaded and printed. This not only keeps the children engaged but also gives parents a glimpse of how your restaurant values their little ones.

Showcasing Family-Friendly Facilities

Is there a play area at your restaurant? Do you offer booster seats, changing tables, or a stroller parking area? Make sure all of these facilities are clearly showcased online. If you're using a third-party app like Dinevate, which we always recommend as the better choice, emphasize how these facilities are part of the overall dining experience.

Special Offers and Events

Families are often on the lookout for deals. Highlight any family specials, kids eat free nights, or entertainment events aimed at families on your website and social media channels. Big clear images and cheerful colors can be used to make these offers appealing and easy to spot.

Online Booking Made Simple

The ability to reserve a table online is a powerful feature for parents. Keeping this process simple and quick will accommodate busy schedules. If you're utilizing an online ordering system, consider how to integrate this with family reservations—perhaps an option to pre-order kid's meals or request special accommodations.

Leveraging Social Media for Families

Social media is a great tool to communicate your restaurant's kid-friendly atmosphere. Share pictures or videos of families enjoying your restaurant, happy kids eating their favorite dishes, or any kid-centric events you may host. Just remember, reviews also matter. Encourage satisfied parents to share their positive experiences online.

Conclusion: Creating a Digital Welcome Mat

Creating a kid-friendly online presence is more than just having a website; it's creating a digital welcome mat for families. By following the steps outlined in this post, your restaurant can appeal to the family demographic and provide a seamless online to in-person dining experience.

With Dinevate, you can enhance the family dining experience from the moment they find you online to their visit to your restaurant. It's not just about making dining easier; it's about creating happy memories for every family member.

Remember, it's the little touches that make a big difference!
