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).

While they haven't necessarily abandoned the traditional newsroom structure, digitally native publishers organized themselves to suit millennials' needs.

Four lesser-known subreddits every marketer should read

Reddit calls itself the “front page of the Internet.” Anything that strikes a nerve there will inevitably appear on BuzzFeed, Tumblr and countless other sites. This is a big reason why the platform should stay on marketers' radar, even if they don't advertise directly on the site. Subreddits of note include /r/adops, where ad ops people at publishers and ad tech companies swap ideas; /r/fellowkids, which details the many ways that brands fall flat by trying to hard to reach young people; and /r/TIFU, which is often a master class in the art of telling a good story.

Unilad’s ‘serious’ videos are getting millions of Facebook views

Unilad has started to create more serious video content, increasing its video team from one person to 12 in the last few months. Its videos are getting millions of views on Facebook. Liam Harrington, co-founder, explains that it is getting high engagement from its Facebook posts, more so than competitors like Lad Bible. It’s also bringing in more Facebook referral traffic than Lad Bible. However, only a few months into this transformation, it has some ways to go in shedding its “lad” image.
