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!

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).

Copyranter’s advice to aspiring female copywriters

All the trades keep reporting that there’s a “talent crisis” at ad agencies. So why haven’t they hired you yet? the most likely reason is probably because about 95 percent of agency creative directors are male and most of them prefer male creatives because they can then remain comfortably sexist and tell hilarious pussy jokes and, oh yeah, they don’t think you’re tough enough, babe.

Inside Lad Bible’s soft-sell approach to push notifications

The biggest drop-off points in push notifications are when they are used for over-spamming (naturally) and when people are asked to turn them on, according to mobile messaging platform OtherLevels. Leaving it a day or two before asking if users want pushes can help, as well as operating a less-is-more approach. Lad Bible is testing the waters with notifications, keeping it on brand with sending out 20 percent as more irreverent content.

The brand outrage bubble just won’t burst (and that’s a problem)

#Brandfails are everywhere: Uber is changing its logo; Airbnb is too; McDonald's doesn't have enough cheese in mozzarella sticks. The combination of speed and need to share your opinion has made the sheer volume go up, according to Columbia prof George Nitzburg. But the question is if brands are insulated now because of the sheer attention span -- if everything is a brand fail, nothing really is. “We don’t have yet the ability to differentiate between significant concerns and genuine concerns,” said Dipti Bramhandkar, who heads planning at Iris NY.
