Find more Restaurant Owner leads with Coldlytics than any other data provider! Coldlytics specializes in finding restaurant owners email addresses and phone numbers to supercharge your cold email, cold calling, or even direct mail campaigns.

In this step-by-step guide, you’re going to learn exactly how to create fresh list of restaurant owners using the Coldlytics self serve platform.

If you’ve been searching for restaurant owners, you likely came across several restaurant suppliers as well. While other sources group both of these together you can get more specific with Coldlytics.

Using the additional notes section, you can request inclusions and exclusions. An example of this would be “Include companies that mention “menu” on their website.” or “Exclude companies that mention “supplies” on their website.”

If you’ve tried to create a list of restaurant owners before, there’s a good chance you’ve tried using tools like D7 Lead Finder or Seamless AI. We’ve heard lots of feedback that  platforms like these are great for some searches, but in the instance of restaurant owners often turned back results that were entirely inaccurate or full of info@ and office@ email addresses.

Coldlytics will never provide generic emails, only direct decision maker contacts. We understand the need for direct contact information based on our founders previous experience running  marketing operations in multiple digital marketing agencies.

So how does Coldlytics work exactly?

Glad you asked. Coldlytics starts by identifying restaurants via their Google Business Profiles (GBPs). From there we are able to pull a lot of information about the restaurant such as where they are located and what their review score is on Google.

Next we take this data on our spreadsheet and begin deduplication, cleansing and normalization. This ensures that the list is high quality before we start looking for the owner’s contact information. Again, having a good clean list is critical to your success with outbound marketing.

Our human research team is made up of contact finding experts. We spend significant time searching the web for as many direct emails and phone numbers as we can find.

Once we’ve finished our research, the data is sent over to our email verification partner, Zerobounce. They check each of the emails to ensure that we’re finding as many deliverable email addresses as possible and avoiding unnecessary bounced contacts.

The best part? We have a bounce-free guarantee. You’ll never pay for a bounced contact again.

Within 24 hours from requesting a new list, we email you a link to a spreadsheet where you can access your leads. Set it and forget it. Follow the guide below to get started!

Search Google Maps for "Restaurants in [location]" or "Mexican restaurants in [location]", for example, where [location] can be a specific city, state, or even country. Be as granular as you want here, but we would recommend sticking to geographies with a combined population of over 20k.

Copy and paste the Google Maps URL from your browser address bar into Coldlytics.

Repeat this step as many times as you wish. For example, if you want to source restaurants in multiple cities or specific states.
