The value of an industry specific insurance broker

As a retired Chef and Food & Beverage Executive for over two decades, I never really put much thought to risk Management or just how much really goes into protecting the property of the guests, the employees and the hotel or restaurant itself.   Having spent the last 5 years dedicated to studying Risk Management, and knowing just what goes in behind the scenes at properties across the country, it's amazing there aren't more claims!  

Writing hotel insurance policies that provide…

Packaged food is no longer the preserve of developed regions. Companies in the global packaged food market are now gaining nearly as much revenue from developing economies as they are from developed ones. This points toward an inherent change that has altered the very character of the global packaged food market. Companies are now courting success by being present in high volume markets where exposure to global food habits is…

The term Chamomile actually refers to a range of different daisy-like plants, which are a member of the Asteraceae family. The two most important species are German chamomile (Marticaria recutita) and Roman chamomile (Chamaemelum nobile). These two have an extensive industrial application. They are mainly used for their calming and anti-inflammatory properties, and each offer their own additional health benefits. Apart from these Chamomile has been…

Non Compete Disclosure

Hi All, We are owners of 2 very popular breakfast/lunch restaurants.  We hired a woman that worked for us as a manager for about a year at which time, we needed to fire her. We just recently found out that she is now opening a breakfast/lunch restaurant in somewhat of a shabby area in a restaurant building that has not had very much success (various restaurants have tried but all went out of business). Our dilemma is this: She contacted our head cook of 10+ years and has offered him $75 more…

Tipping: Good or Bad?

Lately I've been hearing a lot of debates about whether or not tipping is good for servers and diners. On the one hand, tipping is not generally based on performance and gives servers an unreliable income. On the other, it creates incentives and increases a servers opportunity to make more money. Here's a few articles I've read recently with some good information. I would love to hear some thoughts and personal expeirneces! A Restaurant Server Explains Why We Shouldn't Abolish Tipping Should…

Restaurant Loyalty Programs- Worth It?

Lately I've been reading a lot about restaurant loyalty programs and whether or not they are worth it. The Menu Shoppe recently wrote about how loyalty programs increase revenue. I was sold until I read this blog post about how they reduce profits. I am hoping to hear from small restaurant owners who have used these programs and can talk about their results. So restaurant owners, what do you say? Is a restaurant loyalty program worth the effort?

In the News

Livio LauroSouthern Wine & Spirits of Nevada’s senior director of key accounts, and Armando Rosario, Southern’s director of mixology in Orlando, Florida, perused multiple bookstores before finally putting pen to paper. “We noticed that the cocktail book scene has become an interesting story: 500 recipes, 700 recipes, 800 recipes, 1,000 recipes, 2,000 recipes—the more the better,” Lauro says. So rather than contribute a tome boasting 2,001 recipes, they did the next logical thing: The Twelve Cocktails Everyone Needs to Know ($15,TwelveCocktails.com).
