Foodie Fortnight

Southampton has a fantastic selection of places to eat from small independent bistros and cafes to restaurants with several hundred covers.  We’ve got Chinese, Japanese, Indian, Mauritian, Spanish, Italian, Scandinavian, Korean, Mexican, Portuguese, Latvian…. the list goes on and on.  This is something to celebrate – which is exactly what we will be doing with our 2-week restaurant promotion!

Foodie fortnight will be based on Newcastle’s tried and tested Restaurant Week. Participating outlets will come up with a £10 or £15 offer (eg. “2 courses for £15” or “Afternoon tea for £10”).  This offer will be published on the Foodie Fortnight website and the event will be heavily promoted on social and digital platforms as well as in print.  Diners wishing to take advantage of the offer will register on the website and then book the restaurant mentioning that they wish to use the offer.

The idea is to get new customers through your door – people who might never have heard of your restaurant or those who need just a little bit of encouragement to give it a go.

It will be absolutely free for Levy Payers to get involved.  Restaurants outside of the BID area or below the levy threshold will still be able to submit an offer but there will be a charge for doing so.  Details will of how to get involved will be sent out to levy payers in the next couple of weeks.

If successful, we’d like to follow Foodie Fortnight with promotions of other sectors such as heath and beauty and professional services.  If you have any ideas you’d like us to consider, please do get in touch. (info@gosouthampton.co.uk)
