How The Gannet & Tempus at The Grand Central Hotel kicked off the new year with a bang

The days are getting shorter and the nights are fair drawing in. Restaurants across Glasgow are already getting into the festive spirit with a packed diary and more Prosecco than you could shake a stick at, but (and we hate to remind you) what about those long, dark days in January?

The first part of the year feels a bit slow after the hustle and bustle of Christmas, but we can help you make sure the footfall keeps coming and revenue flowing all the way through to March.

And since Christmas is the time of giving, we can do it all for free (or almost free.)

The Gannet

One of Finnieston’s top restaurants, The Gannet has won rave reviews from critics and diners alike, as well as prestiguous awards like 3 AA Rosettes and a Michelin Bib Gourmand.

Featuring in our luxury dining category, hundreds of itisoners treated loved ones to a night of gourmet dining at The Gannet. Which is a way better Christmas present that novelty socks, if you ask us.

And for the Gannet, they got a busy restaurant from January right through to March from a high-impact promotion that cost virtually nothing:

  • 1,000 diners through the door
  • 100% new customers – who rated it 4.5 /5
  • Huge cash injection from voucher sales
  • Additional 50% income from upselling
  • Unredeemed voucher income slashed fee to 2%

Tempus at The Grand Central Hotel

Set in the stylish surroundings of The Grand Central Hotel, the Tempus kitchen team creates seasonal dishes to match their impressive surroundings.

Their itison Christmas gifting campaign saw them featured in our dining gift category with a powerful advert that cost nothing, and got them:

  • 2,500+ diners enjoying seasonal dining
  • Fee completely negated through unredeemed vouchers
  • Estimated 60%+ additional income from upselling
  • 94% new customers
  • Consistent footfall throughout January to March
