Valentine’s Day – Glassware and Plating Options


According to the Australian Restaurant & Catering Association, Valentine’s Day is the second biggest dining day of the year. Glassware and plating options can add to that special experience that customers seek and remember.

How to Enhance Customer Experience & Repeat bookings

Valentine’s Day is a valuable opportunity for those in the hospitality industry. With a little preparation, you can ensure service is seamless while creating a memorable and positive experience for your customers. Here are some ideas:

  • Create a Pre-set menu designed to share
  • Provide special glassware and plating options with a romantic twist
  • Offer champagne on arrival or petit fours with coffee
  • Offer Takeaway to cater for those choosing a romantic night in (and the Uber Eats crowd)
  • Encouraging repeat business with a special offer for the next booking.

Capture the singles crowd by creating a special event or date night before or after Valentine’s Day. This may help boost bookings across the week and on days that are normally quieter.

Plan the Menu – Think about Glassware and Plating options

Our friendly team at Johnson Hospitality can help you plan ahead to ensure your Valentine’s Day service is seamless.

A great Menu can not only help your service run smoothly, but it is integral to creating a memorable customer experience. Our team can help you decide what new Kitchen equipment you might need and what plating and glassware options are best for highlighting your Chef’s creations.

Also check your stocks of Cutlery, Crockery, Champagne Glasses and Wine Glasses. Depending on your venue and theme, you may like our range of Copper cutlery, Gold Cutlery and Rose Gold cutlery.

Don’t forget the little things such as Napkins, Tea Lights, Coffee & Cocktail Syrups, and Janitorial and Washroom items.
