    Hey - It might be a great option to reach out to local media in the form of lifestyle bloggers & publications and invite them to an open evening where they get to know more about the business and try your product and service you offer. Once they have done this, they can share to their social media channels (hopefully the ones who you work with will have a large social following) along with content you can share for your own social media channels.

    The use of Instagram and Twitter is great for local businesses with NO overheads and costs. When sharing for eg; the food you make, create an instagram story and include # in the description on insta story as this will pop up for anyone looking at that hashtag in the area so it's free publicity. Consistency will help people discover you on a local scale with again no paid marketing.

    Be sure to add your business to Google Business's, it's a free tool and effective for local searches.

    Hope this helps!

    One of the biggest obstacles to small business marketing is finding the budget for it. But if you don't make noise about your business it's hard to get anyone to listen.

    Well you are focusing your promotions on social media and product sampling. Social media is definitely a powerful media for brand promotions but you cannot neglect the other marketing channels like promotional products and paper advertisement. The thing is you can collaborate your digital marketing campaign with the promotional products which is far more effective and help in brand building.

    One powerful yet sometimes disregarded promotional method is youtube. You can have a youtube channel sharing some recipes or even doing actual cooking of your specialties(best if accompanied with explanations). Target local keywords when uploading those videos and in time it could be leading people to your location when your videos gain traction.

    Direct mailing services is the best idea for business promotion. But it should be updated and suitable email lists for emailing. Now a days lots of direct email services provider company in the market. But we should away from fake and old email list provider company and select a reputed emailing list provider. Direct mailing services helps the business send the direct email in your client inbox, it reduce the chances of your target.

    Hi,
    Approaching B2B companies helps to enhance your business productivity and helps to get the required visibility to your brand or products.  
    You can reach more people within short period of time.

    According to me you need to find your target audience first and having some creative program for your customers it can help drive them in the door because your business is providing extra value for their business. Also you can consult customer experience agency.
