Customers Only

Make sure your space remains available for your customers


Parking spots, outdoor seating, waiting areas, lounges etc are often plagued by crowds. Make sure your business ropes these off early and place adequate signage to ensure your customers are given priority.

NO DOGS KEEP THEM HOME

DO NOT BRING DOGS TO SAFE-TRICK-O-TREAT OR SCREAM ON THE GREEN


Dogs are wonderful additions to the family home, but that is where they belong. The costumes, commotion, and chaos do not make for happy habitats for pooches. Service Dogs are obviously permitted.

Keep it Simple - Increase Turnover

There is no reason your business cannot capitalize on the crowds


Capitalize your success with well-thought-out planning. Keep menus simple, shrink large menus to 1-5 items, (include gluten-free & vegetarian options). Try to prep "meal packages" as much as possible. Increase turnover by providing takeout items. Put marketing (business cards, coupons, menus) inside take-out bags.

For Paying Customers Only

Keep it Simple, Be Polite


To help reduce your messes or backups in the bathroom it can be a good idea to post a simple sign that reads "Restroom is Reserved For Paying Customers Only". Be polite and place this sign near your entrance NOT on the bathroom door.
