  • So, is generating sales via online food ordering more important to an operator than managing their reputation?
  • 32 percent of U.S. teens named Instagram the most important social network...so what are restaurateurs doing about that?
  • When a company pivots, doe they leave their business model behind or, leverage legacy assets?
  • The day after Easter? Watch out for egg salad specials :)
  • The importance of customer feedbacks that will drive insightful actions and measurement of a restaurant performance is ever Increasing.

    A startup called Afterall, has developed a product for just the same.

  • We still believe the mobile and web food order sector is just beginning to affect change in the marketplace. New, fully-evolved business models track consumer behavior and it's all about delivery.
  • Going to attend a event with my catering staff..
  • Seems that smarter restuarants win, when they know what their customers really want...basics like good food, good service and a clean, quality environment. Sounds good to us!
  • Internet commerce for restaurants will absolutely make a difference and help define your success in 2015

Purina turns pet research into content with ‘Puppyhood’

Purina is reaching out to a new subset of consumers -- new puppies owners -- with a fresh content play. Puppyhood is a new magazine-like site created by The Night Agency that serves as a resource, as opposed to a product pitch. The site features a registration aspect that will let the brand collect data on users. "We come from a great legacy of expertise around pet care and pet nutrition," said brand manager Marcus Fong.
