They should do napkin ads too!
Not sure when the ad starts but i'm going to go have lunch there today and I will find out when they are getting their new place mats. They only told me that this restaurant was having new place mats

I just got my proof of what my ad will look like on the place mat. I just signed it back and approved it with no changes. I hope they get printed soon.

I can't wait to see what it looks like.

How many restaurants will it be in? Will these restaurants all be in your mowing area?

I will be in 2 restaurants.. the 1st one still has some left so this year they decided to go to the new restaurant I just payed them. Hopefully get more business from them since they are more busy than restaurant A and restaurant B is currently one of my customer and will be a customer for life. They don't have any mower so yeah. I do it

There will be 50,000 place mats printed for restaurant B

Justin, I just saw this thread,

I advertise in about 25 to 30 restaurants right now. I went and bought these great Napkin Holders that you can put ads on both sides.

Every one of the restaurants do not charge me anything at all. I just paid for the napkin holdesr, and they where only $5 bucks each.
I not only sold a couple house from those ads, but people run into me and say they are sick of seeing my face all over the place. That is good!

I also bought a bunch of the large stand up napkin holder that have my advertising on the front of them. I have them in about 19 gas stations next the fountain drinks.

I do so many weird things because that is what works.

I will get you some picture if you want?

Thanks!
Artie

Here is one that I have in a Shell Gas Station.

The good thing about gas stations, they get tons of traffic to see advertising.

I put my outdoor business card holders on the top of these so people can Take A Card and the card holder does not fall open or go all over the place if someone knocks it over or when they put more napkins in the holder.
They work great for me.

I have about 20 gas stations and the owners want me to more of thier other stores because the look nice.

THINK OUTSIDE OF THE BOX!

If I did sell them, I would have to get $19.99 for the stand up ones.

I will send mor of the other ones I have in the resturaunts.

That is really cool!

How do you go about getting them in the stores like that?

Do you offer to pay for the napkins or do they refill them, themselves?

For the gas stations I will supply the napkins for the first like 6 month or all year, They only use about a half case. Case of napkins are only $50 dollors.

The Resturaunts, I just give them the holders and they get the napkins from their suppliers.

But when I bring the holders into them, just about everyone of them love the napkin holders and they say yes!

I put them in one gas stations and with in days I got calls from other gas stations asking for them. The owners are all family Indians, they realy are great/smart business people.

SORRY JUSTIN, I feel like I highjacted your thread
