Key Idea: Young Artists
Here are two ways local restaurants attract neighborhood families by making youngsters (and their parents) feel like VIPs!
Celebrating Young Artists
KEY IDEA – When youngsters arrive at The Fishn’ Pig Restaurant, servers actively promote the monthly coloring contest, which faithfully awards T-shirts, free food, and other fun prizes. The walls tastefully display last month’s entrants, including winners
from three age groups.
KEY IDEA – Actively promoting their monthly contest and keeping displayed art current allows The Fishn’ Pig to:
- Demonstrate a genuine interest in its youngest guests.
- Give fidgety kids something fun to do while they wait.
- Make winners (and their proud families) feel like VIPs when presenting their prizes!!!

Take a Kindergartener to Work Day
KEY IDEA – Back when her own kids attended a nearby school, restaurateur Paula Spataro hosted her first of many kindergarten field trips to her restaurant!
Students see the kitchen, step into the chilly walk-in, and hear how food is prepared. In the dining room, they receive small pressed-out dough rounds on parchment marked with their name. Paula ladles a little sauce onto each round, which the kids spread with spoons before adding cheese and fresh veggie toppings.
KEY IDEA – Then, as the pies bake, the youngsters color small pizza boxes. After enjoying a warm slice of their own pie, the kids take the rest home in their decorated box! As a result, Paula hears plenty of praise from proud parents!
