National Food Holidays to Market in February

Superbowl! Valentines Day! February is a month filled with celebration - probably because it's both short and (depending on where you live) a bit on the dark and gloomy side. We've already discussed the two 'big' holidays to look out for this month - but what about national days? These days, also known as 'hashtag holidays' highlight a particular food item or event in order to get it trending.

National food days are a fun way to promote your restaurant's strongest offerings. Using the hash tags on Instagram (today, for example, is #nationalcroissantday) can push your profile higher and create buzz for your business.
