CTN Services Inc. is the parent company of RestaurantBar.com, the premier online provider for restaurant and bar services in your local community.
RestaurantBar.com’s company line is “Dining Made Easy.” In other words, we are a one-stop shop for all your dining needs. We believe that we can benefit both dining customers and restaurant owners and that these goals are not mutually exclusive.
The current economic climate has dramatically changed the way customers spend their disposable income on dining out. As a result, restaurants have seen a cut in sales and profits. Many not only struggle to compete, but also to stay above water.
Our goal is to provide an easy and cost-effective way for customers to enjoy the dining experience, while providing an effective way for restaurants to attract new customers and increase profits at the same time.
For Restaurant Patrons:
Membership is easy and has some great perks. When you visit the website you are given the opportunity to become a member of the Restaurantbar.com family through a very simple and free registration. This gives you access to thousands of local restaurants, menus, reviews, dining deals, video tours, and even the ability to make reservations. However, the greatest benefits are received by becoming a Dining Passport Card Holder. With your Dining Passport, you will receive amazing “insider” discounts and deals from your favorite establishments as well as new places you’ve always wanted to try out. We know that these days every dollar counts and dining out has gone from a convenience or a part of everyday life to a bit of a luxury. We aim to make that luxury much more economical.
For Restaurant Owners:
In this economy, we acknowledge the huge challenge restaurant owners face in generating new and constant business. Most patrons when faced with budget constraints tend not to explore new dining options and usually just stay with establishments where they know what they will get. Another challenge is that when business is down, one budget item that is frequently cut is advertising. With no guarantee that a dollar spent will bring in customers, especially new customers, advertising sometimes seems like an unnecessary risk that you cannot afford.
In addition, the advancements in technology and the internet have changed the landscape of the restaurant industry (access to information, social media marketing, ability to post information on blogs and reviews, online reservations, buying/selling deals online, etc.).
In our business model, local restaurants and bars partner with us by agreeing to provide discounted products and services to our members. In return we provide advertising, discounts, general information, and more to our large and eager membership base.
There is no upfront fee for the restaurants and no financial commitment from you other than to honor the discounts for our members. And though the upfront cost is free, the service we provide is not by any means cut-rate. The website is maintained by a professional staff of writers, public relations specialists, videographers, and designers. This is because it is in our mutual best interests to drive as many new customers to the partner restaurants as possible by promoting on third party sources such as social media marketing media, cable television advertising, and traditional print resources.
