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?…

Line Cooks vs Caterers

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.

  • So, is generating sales via online food ordering more important to an operator than managing their reputation?
  • 32 percent of U.S. teens named Instagram the most important social network...so what are restaurateurs doing about that?
  • When a company pivots, doe they leave their business model behind or, leverage legacy assets?
  • The day after Easter? Watch out for egg salad specials :)
  • The importance of customer feedbacks that will drive insightful actions and measurement of a restaurant performance is ever Increasing.

    A startup called Afterall, has developed a product for just the same.

    Its really elegant and innovative with the design, while clearly intelligent to ask your customers the right set of questions.

    Check them out, or drop a mail to support@myoyce.in
  • We still believe the mobile and web food order sector is just beginning to affect change in the marketplace. New, fully-evolved business models track consumer behavior and it's all about delivery.
  • Going to attend a event with my catering staff..
  • Seems that smarter restuarants win, when they know what their customers really want...basics like good food, good service and a clean, quality environment. Sounds good to us!
  • Internet commerce for restaurants will absolutely make a difference and help define your success in 2015

Barton F. Graf: We can be serious, too

Gerry Graf and Barney Robinson, founders of indie agency Barton F Graf 9000 joined us on the Digiday Podcast to talk about Cannes, which they both agree is kind of "silly." Robinson, the "business" mind of the equation, said that he's very excited about the creative possibilities of ad tech. These days, the duo is focused on "giving back" the community -- they got a lot of help from the likes of David Droga when they started out, and according to Robinson, it's "an obligation to pay it forward."

The definitive Digiday guide to what was in and what was out this week

What a week it was. Facebook changed its logo, while Beats 1 and Apple Music made their big debuts. It reached a pinnacle on Wednesday when the New York Times suggested that peas is actually a good addition to guacamole, much to the dismay of everyone on earth. We made one chart to help you decipher what's in and what's out.

The New York Times: Paper of record, master of trolling

The New York Times uses its powers both for good and for trolling. Its suggestion on Wednesday to add peas to guacamole got a major rise out of readers, who considered the recipe off-putting to the point of being intentionally so. The post was only the latest seemingly written in an effort to tweak Times readers. Others include its reportage on the monocle revival and a story about well-off Manhattan kids who help their parents shop for multi-million dollar condos.
