Health Inspections 101

In all my years of running restaurants, health inspections have always been impromptu, meaning, I've never had a health inspector call me up and say, “Please get prepared, I’ll be by in two days to do an inspection.”  Wouldn't that have been nice?  

Despite the ice that runs through your veins when you hear, “The Health Inspector is here” that big, bad health inspector did not come to huff and puff and blow your restaurant down.  As a matter of fact, they’re…

Customer Retention - Listen to them

Today, is the day of the most digitally empowered customers! Your guests/customers don't like the experience at your restaurant, they will actively look out to voice their opinion. If the medium they choose to do so is on the internet forums (like Zomato, Yelp etc), then we have a problem. Negative word-of-mouth. This again leads to the dreadful phenomenon of Customer churn. Which means, you need to spent a lot more on advertising  than to grow your customer base Automatically. So now what?…

Recently The Painted Table expanded to an experimental Bistro partnership.  Taming down our nouvelle style cuisine we made a menu in less than two days while "Restaurant Impossible-ing" the grime coated kitchen.  In two days we went from nothing to full fledged bistro and the discussion I bring to the table is what everyone else thinks of the differences between a line cook and a caterer.

How Nars is bringing modern luxury to social media

Nars'' social campaigns aren't conventional. This week, the luxury cosmetics brand launched a Twitter hashtag that chipped away at a prize-holding orb. The company rarely promotes giveaways, however. NARS is luxury, and those aren’t on brand. Still, through its campaigns, the company has managed to raise awareness on social while maintaining the allure of luxury. According to L2's head of research Maureen Mullen, it’s about smart targeting: "The goal is to be in the right hands rather than a lot of hands."

The Washington Post takes an Amazon-inspired approach to native ad targeting

You’ve heard the common complaint that advertisers want native ads at scale. But they also want it to reach the right people. Too often, native ads follow a “post-and-pray strategy,” The Washington Post’s Jed Hartman said. So the Post built a product that marries data with native -- adapting the same article-recommendation technology that has helped the newsroom increase engagement 96 percent on the site. If this sounds familiar, it might be because the tech was inspired by Amazon, whose founder Jeff Bezos also owns the Post.

Start me up: Rolling Stones tap YouTubers to tout tour

The Rolling Stones teamed up with YouTube comedy trio The Kloons to promote their upcoming North American tour. The Kloons worked Keith Richards and Mick Jagger into an episode of their popular “Sisters” Web series, which the Stones saw as an opportunity to reach a younger demographic. In 24 hours, the video has racked up 25,000 views and 1,300 likes on YouTube. While Orange Factory Music co-founder Jeremy Skaller called it “a creative hit,” he doesn’t forecast a substantial sales boost for the Stones.
