Man, this group has been dormant at a time when foodservice media has changed so much. Let's get this conversation going again!

Hey, all, am an Indianapolis-based food and wine writer and food blogger. Was referred to Fohboh by a few chef pals and looking forward to getting a better feel for the place. Blog covers primarily Indianapolis fine dining and wine --

I'm involved in food marketing. Loyalty marketing to be more precise. I have a marketing background and came from the publishing world. Before that, I was an art director in an ad agency in Minneapolis. Most recently, I've really started utilizing social media applications to market my company and our products. So much to learn...

Hi All!
We're a restaurant music service provider that allows you to customize all music for your individual location or entire chain. Imagine you as an owner or manager sitting comfortably at any Internet connected PC making changes to the different playlists of music that play in all of your units. You make the changes, or allow us. See for more info and tell me what you think.

Hello Denise,
I have been involved in the restaurant distribtion business for over 25 years. I have critiqued food establishments (non professionally) of every price scale. Needless to say not all the expensive ones are better than the single unit Mom and Pop styles wheich happen to be my favorite . Say hello when you have a moment. Please visit my website if you get a moment. I started producing a line of Organic Sicilian Blood Orange Juice and now its my time to get critiqued. . I would like to offer anyone in the group free samples of our prodcut for their professional opinion.

I'm a longtime foodservice journalist and own/edit/publish Foodservice East and as well as doing a lot of industry publication freelancing - I'm really enjoying FOHBOH and find it a useful and more meaningful site than the consumer-related ones like CHOWHOUND. Look forward to connecting with all of you.
