Best approach to contacting restaurant managers? Mon, 11/26/12 7:19 PM (permalink)
Hi, I'm hoping members of the forum can provide some feedback on the best method to reaching out to restaurant managers in my area for a product concept I'm researching. I realize these folks are really busy and I want to maximize my chances of getting a meaningful discussion with anyone interested.
I'm hoping to schedule a quick and informal 15-30 minute conversation to learn more about their business and discuss a product concept I have in mind. This is purely market research and not a sales discussion of any kind. A few questions I have are:
- Is an in-person visit better or should I call instead?
- I'd like to buy them a coffee or something to thank them for their time, but given it's their establishment is there something else that would be better?
Any advice is welcome. Thanks!
