But these days, there are more and more choices of restaurants, cafés, and bars, and you can easily look up thousands of places online before you go, and even see reviews made by other customers on the place’s food and service. There are so many places and so many options for different types of food. And if you throw in our generation’s FOMO (fear of missing out), picking out a place to eat can be a difficult task. In fact, there’s even a restaurant sign that says 90 percent of relationships is figuring out where to eat!
This is the reason why restaurants today battle for the attention of their potential customers in every means possible. It can be TV commercials, ads on the internet, special campaigns and giveaways, and even by using their signs and billboards. In this day and age, the best thing they can do is make people laugh.
It’s known that if you can come up with something that can make people smile, make them feel amused or appreciate your sense of humor, they’ll probably rather be your customers than someone else’s. Being hilarious can get you loyal customers for life, especially if your food can back up your advertising.
So a lot of these restaurants try to get their wit and hilarity on, when choosing what to write on their signs. Some of them just make mistakes or don’t think their signs through, which also makes for a pretty funny sign. And sometimes the employees just go rogue and write awesome jokes. Either way, if you drive by one of these signs, it’s likely that you won’t be able to ignore it, and that you’ll remember it next time when you have a trouble deciding where to eat.
Some places, like the Mexican restaurant El Arroyo, have even made a name for themselves for having hilarious signs. Just by being funny, they managed to increase their Instagram following and grow a community to help their brand become more familiar. Sometimes restaurant slogans can be pretty boring, or even downright fails, but these restaurants have completely nailed it with their hilarious signs, that were clearly conjured up by brilliant people.
