Here are some quick tips to get kids begging their parents to come to your pizzeria:

  • Add variety to your kids menu. Go beyond cheese pizza, chicken nuggets and mac and cheese. Offer your top sellers/specials in kid portions. You might be surprised at the results. Don’t forget to give the items creative names.
  • Provide some entertainment at the table — coloring books, games, etc.
  • Let them make their own pizza — have ready to make pizza trays with a variety of toppings.
  • If your pizzeria consistently has a wait — be sure to keep the children entertained. Some shops have arcades, designated play tables with games, use tablets and TV to play cartoons and even provide a waiting area near the pizzaiolo station so kids can watch them toss dough.
  • Train your host staff and servers to accommodate kids. Click here for great tips on catering to kids.
