Gary Downey Founder Of Restaurant Vantage

25 Years of Experience in Restaurant Marketing & Consulting

Elevate Your Restaurant's Success with Expert Marketing



I am Gary Downey, the proud owner of Restaurant Vantage. With over 30 years of marketing expertise, including 15 years dedicated exclusively to restaurant marketing, I bring unparalleled knowledge and experience to the table. My journey began at a young age, working in my father's bars and restaurants, and has since evolved into a lifelong passion for the hospitality industry. This deep understanding of the restaurant and bar scene, coupled with my marketing proficiency, uniquely positions me to elevate your business to new heights.



Tailored Marketing Solutions for the Hospitality Industry

The restaurant industry operates on narrow profit margins, a challenge compounded by today's rapidly rising food prices. This financial strain is especially acute for new establishments with limited marketing budgets.



To address this, I founded Restaurant Vantage, offering specialized software and affordable marketing solutions tailored specifically for the restaurant and bar industry. As a sole proprietor, I manage all sales and personally handle each client account. No aspect of my service is outsourced; when you engage Restaurant Vantage, you are directly hiring me to craft and execute your marketing campaigns.



Navigating the Complexities of Digital Marketing

Marketing in the digital age presents unique and complex challenges. Those responsible for promotions and customer acquisition face a competitive landscape where diners have numerous options vying for their attention.


Dining out is more than just eating; it’s an experience. My role is to translate that experience into the digital realm, creating an engaging online presence that attracts and bonds with customers before they even set foot in your restaurant. By harnessing the synergy between your culinary offerings and digital marketing, I can help drive traffic, attract more customers, and increase ticket averages.



Specialized Services for Maximum Impact

I offer SEO and Reputation Management services specifically designed for restaurants. My sophisticated targeting methods ensure your brand reaches the right audience at the right time, maximizing your marketing impact.



Dedicated, Personalized Attention for Measurable Results

With a focus on efficient resource deployment, I strive to deliver measurable results and maximize your return on investment. To maintain the highest level of service, I limit my client roster, ensuring dedicated, personalized attention to each project.
