Health Inspections 101

In all my years of running restaurants, health inspections have always been impromptu, meaning, I've never had a health inspector call me up and say, “Please get prepared, I’ll be by in two days to do an inspection.”  Wouldn't that have been nice?  

Despite the ice that runs through your veins when you hear, “The Health Inspector is here” that big, bad health inspector did not come to huff and puff and blow your restaurant down.  As a matter of fact, they’re…

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?…

How Microsoft scored a viral hit with #HowOldRobot

What was intended to be a small experiment in facial recognition involving a couple of hundred people, went hugely viral in a few hours. A new Microsoft website called #HowOldRobot tells you how old you look just by analyzing your photos -- sometimes squarely accurate and other times hilariously off. “It gives people new ways to engage in consumer digital vanity play without taking a selfie,” said Luke Carrell, strategy director at agency We Are Social.

Venmo punches up a mobile ad for Pacquiao-Mayweather bout

Venmo, the mobile payments app favored by millennials everywhere, is part of a cool mobile ad campaign by PHD and Undertone. It serves up an ad about the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight that is up for purchase on PPV from HBO and Showtime, then asks people to open up the app and let them split the cost of the fight ($99) with friends. “We identified Venmo's platform as one solution to highlight what many may not have thought of," said Andrea Cardamone at PHD.

GameStop CMO: ‘You have permission to fail, as long as you fail passionately’

GameStop is a fixture retailer of the 90s strip mall, but it hasn't faced the same phase-out as similar physical media stalwarts like Blockbuster and RadioShack. According to Frank Hamlin, the company's CMO, the importance of the storefront hasn't gone away -- only 5 percent of their business is from online orders -- and they're bringing millennial gamers into businesses. Still, fighting irrelevancy is at the retailer's front-of-mind. "Where the customer goes, that’s where we’re ready to go," said Hamlin.
