The South Carolina Restaurant and Lodging Association (SCRLA) announces several changes coming to Restaurant Week Greenville slated for January 7-17, 2016. Changes include the addition of lunchtime service at many restaurants and a new partnership with Checkpoint Scan Technology provider, ChekTrek. Patrons of Restaurant Week establishments will now scan QR codes at each location to check-in and earn prizes.
Restaurant Week Greenville is an eleven-day celebration of the best cuisine Greenville has to offer. The event gives local, regional and national food lovers the opportunity to experience dinner at a number of casual and high-end Greenville restaurants. Guests can sample new restaurants or visit old favorites while enjoying exceptional dining at a great value. Each restaurant will offer a special prix fixe menu showcasing the best of their cuisine. While not required, diners are encouraged to make reservations, as restaurants will fill up quickly.
Information about the new QR Promotion:
The new QR promotion allows restaurants to see the impact of Restaurant Week. When a guest pays at each restaurant, they will scan a Server Card containing a QR Code using the QR reader on their mobile device. The first time they scan, they will register entering their zip code, email address and a unique password. They will then be logged into the system which will check them in as they scan additional Server Card QR codes at each restaurant. QR readers are available for free via phone app stores. If a mobile device is not available, guests may write down the alphanumeric code from the Server Card and enter it manually by following the links on the RWSC website prior to the end of the campaign. If ANYONE in a group purchases from the special Restaurant Week menu, EVERYONE in the group gets to scan the QR code for validation. Guests that register and scan or enter a Code manually are automatically entered into prize drawings based on the number of restaurants they have visited. Prize winners will be contacted by email after the campaign and restaurants will receive the winners’ contact information as well.
“Planning ahead is a key to getting the most out of Restaurant Week,” commented John Durst, SCRLA President and CEO. “Make reservations early to ensure you can get into your favorite restaurant or try that new place you have heard so much about.”
