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).

How luxury brands try to straddle the accessible-exclusive divide

Research from Hearst finds that over half of millennials in the U.K. feel that when a luxury brand becomes accessible it loses its appeal. Balancing exclusivity and accessibility is a tough challenge for brands -- forward-thinking brands like Everlane and Burberry have turned to Instagram and Snapchat. Personalization builds relationships -- and so loyalty. Mr Porter earns props for its personalized delivery too. This extends to data and marketing.

Publicis' December reorganization now has a tangible product: Saatchi & Saatchi and Roar, both Chase agencies, will share the client's business under a new structure that has one P&L. Leigh Baker, who joins the group this week, will lead the charge. “We used to have an inability to work across the organization and look horizontally,” said Saatchi CEO Brent Smart.

Ad tech is trying to bring analytics to emoji marketing

Now that emojis are all over digital marketing, there’s growing demand to measure their impact in brands’ campaigns just like the rest of their media. That’s why the ad tech industry is adapting to the emoji, and a number of companies are starting to put science and data behind the seemingly frivolous symbols. Companies with names like Snaps, Emogi and Swyft — to name a few — are figuring out how to apply traditional digital ad measurements to emojis, GIFs and stickers.
