WHATS NOT TO LOVE!
EXPERIENCE AN ENTERPRISING RESTAURANT WITH A GENEROUS WELCOME, COURTEOUS ACCOMODATION AND BEAUTIFUL DÉCOR.
ENJOY AN EXCEPTIONAL CHOICE OF OVER 250 NEW FLAVORFUL BARGAIN PRICED ENTREES THAT WILL REWARD YOUR BUSY DAY…ALL AVAILABLE AT A SPECIAL RATE WITHIN 3 DAYS IF YOU ACT FAST!
Last month my friend Bob introduced me to an exceptional restaurant that blew me away! They show such an efficient degree of service and variety of their signature dish…Cheesecakes… that they are well named – The Cheesecake Factory!
Please accept my e-mail invitation to visit by Friday. I have two 50% off discount coupons that expire that day.
I won’t kid you – There is usually a 20 to 30 minute wait, common in very popular bistros, but you will hardly notice it. You are greeted by knowledgeable hosts who take your name and number of your party and quickly find a comfortable seating arrangement.
Welcome to the Receiving Parlor
You will feel like you are in a Mediterranean country as well as Hollywood when you see the décor as you are lead by courteous servers in well pressed slacks and white shirts to your dining area. The tablecloths are shining white and the silverware and chinaware dishes are arranged as in a European palace.
Here comes the Main Assembly Line
The cuisine can best be described as global and you will feel the experience of a whirlwind world tour when you see the menu collection. There are over 250 items available with a menu that changes every 6 months. I can only list a few but some are bound to energize your taste. Explosively tasteful cuisine representing Japan, China, Southeast Asia, Mexico, Italy and Northern Europe, to list a few, leap off the page at you!
Please don’t Ignore Domestic Products
American cuisine traditions hail from New England, The Southeast, The Heartland, Southwest, Pacific Northwest and Hawaiian to name a few.
Here is a sample product inspection
(If those mentioned do not suit you, there are perfect alternative choices)
Traditional comfort food

Mexican – Chicken Mole (Roasted chicken in a savory spiced cocoa sauce)

Cut Rate Products
You can be sure about healthy options. There is a line of salad and light appetizers termed “Skinnylicious” comprising 590 calories or less per item. One is the fire roasted fresh artichoke. Many folks in the US don’t know what an artichoke is, but this native Pacific Coast grown vegetable served in two large sections, succulent when steamed and infused with a spicy vinaigrette and garlic dip is a vegetarian meal in itself.
The lubricating Fountain (there are sodas liquors and other drinks available)
Coffee – Caramel Royale Macchiato – Double espresso, caramel, vanilla and steamed milk and many other varieties of cappuccinos, lattes and native coffees …These are available for takeout and can be ordered as well. All guaranteed to enhance a writer’s world! Pick up a mug for yourself and Katie.
Wines – Wines are available from California, Washington, Europe, South America and Australia ranging from $7.95 to $12.95 per glass.
The Central Production Floor
Cheesecakes, the signature item will blow your mind! There are 37 served varieties infused with creamy tart fruit flavors, sweet and dark chocolate. A choice selection for a coffee drinker is the Kailua Cocoa Coffee Cheesecake filled with layers of rich chocolate mousse and Kailua cream. Another choice selection is the Hershey’s cheesecake covered with chocolate liquor and finished with a smores style toasted marshmallow and graham crackers. This one will be a hit with the kids as you can take out part of the generous portions or order separately as a takeout item. There are downsized low cal options available for all entrees.
Surprise! – There is tailored accommodation available
I carried my laptop with me on my visit and needed to compose and send e-mails later. But was I surprised when the server showed me to a table where wireless capability was available. What a break for an artisan wordsmith! The atmosphere is several upgrades above the cyber writing environment of Starbucks and capped a perfect day!
Don’t just take my word for it (This is a sampling of endorsements)
We dropped in for a mid day snack before heading off to the theatre next door. We each enjoyed homemade lemonade followed by a Greek Salad, shrimp Summer Rolls and Pretzel Crusted Chicken. It was more than enough food for the two of us. K Patterson, Edmonton AB Canada. February 17, 2015

Thank you Rebecca! I know what you mean about enhancement. I was thinking about that after I sent it out. My thinking is modeled around Joshua Boswell’s Recent copy showing even smaller paragraphs, more white space and repetitive use of adjectives extolling benefits . Another issue…As a premierm COS member I own Web Copywriting 2.0. So I shouldn’t need to re-order it ? OK

Your feedback from Rebecca is below:
Great job Michael – you managed to hit all four of the P’s: picture, promise, proof and push.
My only suggestion would be to see if you can go back and strengthen anything even just a little … an even clearer or more inviting picture, a bigger promise, a stronger push … or even just making a tad more conversational overall. It won’t be easy, but would certainly be a good exercise in editing.
Great job again! Rebecca
