Scream on the Green brings a unique opportunity for businesses to grow. The Novato Chamber understands that large events are not without its challenges, but with these helpful tips and suggestions your business can thrive.
KEEP IT SIMPLE
For restaurants and food-based businesses try these tips:
- 3 - 5 item menu | Include at least one vegetarian option
- To-Go / Take-Out options to keep seating open.
- Change hours to be open during the busiest times of Scream on the Green and Safe-Trick-O-Treat | 10 am - 4 pm
Your business is going to be in front of 6000-8000 families--many of whom are NOT from Novato. By offering a sale to potential customers it may help you increase sales.
Get in the spirit of Halloween. Decorate your window and showcase Novato's Spooky Spirit. Work with your neighbors and pitch in together to create a stronger festival atmosphere that customers will be hard-pressed to forget.
Customers Only - thank you
Many businesses have concerns about bathroom use. Simply p[ut a sign out that states your business' bathroom policy clearly. Something like "restroom reserved for paying customers only" Do not forget to say 'please' and 'thank you.'
Print out coupons to give away with treats. As families come to trick-o-treat you have a unique chance to leave them with a deal that may entice them to return to your store at a later date. Giving away coupons is easy and can lead to future sales. You may contact the Chamber if you want help designing a striking coupon.
No community event in the North Bay screams COMMUNITY louder than the Novato Chamber's Scream on the Green. Supporting this event with other community groups and local business will help connect your business with our community.
