Have you ever wanted to go to a restaurant that serves food that tastes just like your favorite home-cooked meal? While there are some corporately owned chains that claim to offer the made-from-scratch meal you’re looking for, sometimes locally owned places offer the service and food you just can’t find anywhere else. Below, the staff at The Pizza Haven, an Italian restaurant located in Rhinelander, WI, are here to let you know why you should eat at locally owned restaurants more often.
The Benefits of Eating at Local Restaurants
1. Exceptional Service
People love the feeling of being recognized in places they frequent. When the staff already know your order before you even walk through the door, it is a sign that they truly care about giving you the best service. At a chain, it can be difficult to get the specialized service offered at a locally owned restaurant due to high numbers of staff and the number of customers each day. When the owner of the restaurant also lives in the neighborhood, it is easier to meet customers outside of the restaurant setting. Knowing what the people in the neighborhood like and dislike is a very useful tool to create a lasting relationship with the community.
2. Delicious Food
Local restaurant owners love what they’re doing and they take pride in the food they make. For example, at The Pizza Haven, everything is fresh and made from scratch with the same recipe that was used almost 50 years ago. This consistent, great quality food is what makes for happy customers and keeps people coming back.
3. Benefits for the Local Economy
When more people start to visit locally owned restaurants, the community directly benefits from it. Smaller businesses are able to give directly to the people in their neighborhood. Rather than spending money at chains owned by large corporations, you should do business with local places that will participate in local events and outreach right in your own community.
For almost 50 years, the owners and staff at The Pizza Haven have been an essential part of the Rhinelander, WI, neighborhood. Along with their delicious Italian cuisine, their dedicated involvement in the community has touched many hearts.
