  • 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

Inside Wendy’s in-house tech innovation lab

Want a Wendy’s cheeseburger? You can already purchase one using mobile payment or through beacon-based ordering. And soon, you may just be able to order a burger using your car’s connected devices. Wendy's has instituted a new tech lab next to Ohio State University's campus in Columbus, Ohio, to fast-track such digital and technology initiatives for its restaurants and consumers. In doing so, it joins other brands such as Domino's, Starbucks and GE which have been pioneering tech innovation in their products and marketing. "The labs will be an important asset in Wendy’s continuing transformation, as we work to drive growth by making our restaurants more inviting and by giving consumers greater access to our brand through technology,” said Emil Brolick, Wendy’s' CEO and president.

Timeline: When tech companies hire journalists

Journalists are in high demand at tech companies. Facebook, Twitter and even Snapchat are on the hunt for media talent that can both tell their stories and help the companies cozy up to media organizations. While the reporter resumes vary, the ideal journalist candidate seems to be the reporter or social media editor who has already show an affinity for the brand. Newsweek’s Mark Coatney, for example, was a big Tumblr proponent before Tumblr hired him away in 2010. Now he's a digital media consultant.

Infographic: How social drives TV viewership and other metrics that matter

A brief history of cheeky in-flight safety videos

The new breed of in-flight videos delivers the same old safety information cloaked as entertainment. The latest is “The Internetest Safety Video on the Internet,” in which Delta honors all things meme, from the Harlem Shake to screaming goats. By all accounts, the trend dates to 2007 when Virgin America released its first humorously meta safety video. Since then, they've only gotten more elaborate. The true masters of the genre, though, are the folks at Air New Zealand, who’ve featured Hobbits, Betty White and Richard Simmons in their uproarious clips.
