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).

Amazon revamps its Snapchat account to show people how its smart speaker works

On TV, Super Bowl viewers saw Amazon's first-ever Super Bowl ad on Sunday that promoted Amazon Echo. On Snapchat, users got a behind-the-scenes look at how the Echo actually works in real life, thanks to a Snapchat takeover from Vine star David Lopez. Using Echo, Lopez ordered an Uber, listened to Spotify and checked the score of the game while speaking with Alexa, the speaker's voice-powered personality. The campaign was paired with recent, promising updates from Echo. “You can shout into the ether and have something done with Amazon Echo,” said Forrester principle analyst Sucharita Mulpuru-Kodali.

Budweiser says it didn’t pay Broncos’ Peyton Manning to mention it

Budweiser paid a lot of money to advertise during the Super Bowl, but not a penny of it went Broncos' quarterback Peyton Manning, who enthusiastically plugged the brand during his post-game interviews. The player said he was excited to drink the beer, leaving people to wonder if he was on the take. But the brand said it had no involvement and is, obviously, "delighted" he did.
