Do you own one of the 19 279 restaurants in Quebec*? If so, you already know that the competition is fierce (this is no less than 1 restaurant per 406 people). On top of the food, how can you make your establishment stand out? Through atmosphere, as well as service. And for this, we can help!

Television

Our television packages offer flexibility, making it possible for you to select the options that suit your establishment best.

Starting with a low-cost basic service, you can then add a number of channels (10, 15, 20, 25 or even 30 channels to please your clientele), or, for the utmost simplicity, select one of our pre-assembled packages. These combine popular and diverse channels, in English, French, or both.

Videotron offers the best selection of HD channels in French, as well as incomparable image and sound quality.

Your rate could even be lowered if you need more than 10 TV sets. Contact us for more information.

The Galaxie Service must also be mentioned… It offers 51 different music channels, without interruptions. These channels you can add to your Illico TV package enable you to select the perfect musical atmosphere for your restaurant or your customers. Among all the choices available, you will find Rock, Pop, alternative, francophone, dance, R&B, jazz, country, folk, classique, oldies from every decade, world music, children’s music…

Note : If you choose to play music in your restaurant (as in any public place), you will have to pay licensing fees. You can refer to the SOCAN and ReSound websites for more details.

Internet

We offer many business Internet options, which can cater to virtually any restaurant. Please see our recent post on choosing the best Internet access.

Among other things, you can plug in your point-of-sales banking terminals (POS) to the Internet, which processes data a lot faster than a phone line. Additionally, the cost is lower, and it tends to drop as a much faster rate than for the telephony network, according to a recent study from the Strawhecker Group. The POS terminals, whether they are at the counter/cash or wireless, provide your customers with a reliable, secure, and convenient payment experience.

Your Internet access can also make it possible to set up a Wi-Fi network for your clientele. All of our Business Internet accesses include a free Wi-Fi router (rented), making this opportunity easier than ever! This router accepts up to 200 simultaneous connections; with such trafic, it’s important to plan for sufficient bandwidth. See our recent post on the topic.

Telephony

Whether you want to take reservations, orders, or contact your suppliers, our business telephone line offers unlimited local and long distance calls with other Videotron customers, at all times.

You can also keep your own devices as well as your existing phone number, so your customers can still reliably reach you. Our telephony system is compatible with alarm systems, as well as with most of your other essential equipment.

Our packages

With Videotron Business Solutions, the more services you have, the more you save! We have packages with two, three, or four services, and you can even assemble your own package.
