|| For the pizza restaurant, the first thing I'd do is get 2-for-1 coupons and frequent-pizza-buyers discount cards (like Subway's) into the hands of those strikers to make up for your business they are chasing away... maybe even give them a few free pizza slices to carry an additional sign that says something like "Restaurant Open During Strike."
If I were marketing a sports-pizza restaurant in Fallbrook, I would run promotional deals for every kid's sports team including all the schools and community centers and clubs... you can't afford to sponsor them all, but you can probably afford to sell the parents on a fair price for their post-game or post-season celebrations.
For ownership, as the manager, you should already be able to see all the warts, dirty laundry and maybe skeletons in the closet. Have to ask yourself if it is worth it to "own" all of those things, along with the good aspects of the business...

>I'm up in Escondido, but manage a sports themed pizza restaurant in Fallbrook. Is there anyone out there that could pass on some marketing ideas? Our business has slowed severely due to the strikes at Albertson's (we are right next door!) Also, I'm thinking about buying the business in the next few months...any tips on the transition? I'm fairly new to the "owner" role!
>Secondly, I also sell candles and body products through Little Ruby. You can check out their website at www.littleruby.com. Just give me a call or email to let me know you are interested and I can send you a catalog. You can also host a "candle party" if you'd like to earn candles! Their stuff is great and it smells delicious!
