SMS for Restaurants

In food and beverage service, restaurant owners have to consider customer interactions and employee organization to run their businesses. While you can use phone calls, emails, and mailers to boost sales, these methods take time and aren't always reliable. With SMS solutions from Red Oxygen, you can contact people through text on the device they use most—their cellphones.

As staffing requirements change, you can roll out updates as soon as they arise. Communicate with staff about sudden closures due to weather or other events, introduce new employees, and send out training day reminders and shadowing opportunities. Distribution lists enable you to communicate with set groups of people according to shared characteristics, like workers who want extra hours.

Connection Icon Send Restaurant SMS With Ease

Running a restaurant is more than just a great menu—you need to connect with your diners. Red Oxygen allows you to connect with up to seven billion devices worldwide to keep in touch with your consumers wherever you are. As your restaurant expands, your messaging reach grows with you.

While reaching a large audience is valuable, a local touch can be just as important. For smaller restaurants or locally owned franchises, Red Oxygen can provide a familiar, geographic-based 10dlc phone number that your recipients will recognize.

When customers or employees want to respond to your texts, they can do so. All texts go to a designated email address, and you can even direct dedicated texting numbers to a specific phone number if anyone were to call it. With improved communication, you can keep your staff happy while reeling in customers.
