Doesn't this look delicious? It's from foodporndaily.com - the greatest site on the planet. I'm using it to illustrate that pictures (most definitely of food) make people hungry - or at least develop crave-tastic feelings of want.
Get Pictures Taken of Your Food
Hire a photographer for a couple hundred bucks make up some of your favorite dishes and get some delectable pics taken - maybe even some candid shots of the kitchen staff preparing the eats.
Use the pics everywhere
Put your pictures on our restaurant website, tweet them, post them to Facebook. Give a nod to the photographer, too - they'll definitely appreciate the shout-out.
And Add Them to Your Menu!
Almost every large chain does this - they create an incredibly visual menu with large, lick-the-page pictures. I'm amazed at the number of restos that don’t include pictures. Snapshots of what a customer is ordering reduces risk - they know what they're getting, plus it drives sales of the item you're featuring. Have you added pictures to your menu?
