I've tried dropping off info for free trials to a bunch of local pizza places. In almost all the cases no one was there that could talk, they always took the info happily and said they would pass it along. Since no one took me up on the trials I'm assuming they passed it along to the trash can. For the few owners I did get they mostly said they had like 30 seconds, took the info, shook hangs, said they'd look at it, and when I called back to follow up they weren't interested.
I feel like I have some great campaign features that would rock for a pizza place, but every time I go they are either in the back mixing dough and super busy, or if its in slow times the owner isn't around. I'm looking for a good way to reach them and be able to talk.
Some people have suggested really trying to sell the person at the front counter to be excited to pass the info along. The problem is that in almost every case its been a young teenage girl at the front counter and unless you are ordering food or picking up an order they aren't exactly the type to get all excited for marketing materials and want to go push their boss for it.
Suggestions for this niche? Should I try independent sit down restaurants instead since there is more likely to be a manager or someone I can talk with?
