Restaurant and Cafe’s Dine-in Customer Registration Template

In response to the confusion and uncertainty around dine-in guests providing their phone and address details as required in Stage one of the Roadmap to easing Queensland Restrictions we have created a template for restaurants and cafes etc to use.

We recommend providing a box for your customers to put these straight in to or collecting directly and storing securely, rather than having their details visible on a clipboard list.

If you would like a copy, please complete the form below and a copy will be emailed to you.

The bottom tear-off section gives you the opportunity to reconnect with your customers and building loyalty. It might be a great opportunity to include a monthly prize voucher giveaway as a reward for allowing you to have their email address.
