Chicago’s Virtue offers its guests Mother’s Day brunch boxes such as the “Salmon Brunch Box” and “Steak Brunch Box,” which both feed two people. To promote more orders, Virtue adds its offerings to the navigation menu of the website under “Mother’s Day Orders”. We can’t help but love their play on words with the headline, “A Mother’s Love is a Virtue.”
New York City, Philadelphia, Nashville + More
With a growing number of locations across the East Coast, Emmy Squared offers its customers an engaging, interactive, and delicious Mother’s Day experience. Visitors to the website can purchase a Mother’s Day Pizza and Cocktail Kit + Pizza Making Class. It’s a fun, creative way for the restaurant to show appreciation for participating families while offering a new way for customers to engage with the brand.
The Little Tart Bakeshop
One of Atlanta’s beloved bakeries promotes a few offerings for Mother’s Day, including their Lemon Olive Oil Cake and a Mother’s Day Cookie Box. As a means of driving more visitors to make a purchase, The Little Tart Bakeshop adds a “Mother’s Day <3” tab to the top navigation of the website. This increases orders for visitors looking for seasonal menu offerings.
Another Atlanta hot spot is Whiskey Bird, a popular Asian-influenced, new-American restaurant. Their sister takeout concept, Little Bird, offers Mother’s Day Brunch Takeout complete with a French Toast Casserole and Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Casserole, among other brunch classics. Diners can opt-in for a bottle of sparkling wine for an additional fee — which, why not?
Mount Vernon Inn Restaurant
Mount Vernon, VA
Steps away from George Washington’s historic estate is Mount Vernon Inn Restaurant. This year for Mother’s Day, diners in the Mount Vernon area can order Mother’s Day To-Go for two, four, or six guests. Each package includes a choice of protein, an array of sides, and a choice of dessert. Guests can even choose to take it up a notch with a fresh mimosa kit or a few bottles of red wine.
Just south of Lafayette, Louisiana is the town of Maurice, home to much-loved Village Deaux. The bakery offers its guests a Mother’s Day treat, their famous Gentilly Queen’s Cake — a play on the notorious King Cake that is a Mardi Gras tradition. Guests can simply visit the website to pre-order for pick up just in time for celebrations.
Coming from a strong culinary and banquet background, VIPS Catering is a full-service catering company strategically located in the heart of D.C. Visitors to the site can navigate to their online catering store under the “Order Meal Kits” button where they’ll find an array of catering options.
