New restaurants "Opening Soon" in your area!

I would like to share information on our services that help restaurant vendors locate (and sell) restaurants who are in the "opening soon" stages. If you are a vendor who needs to be in front of a restaurant opening perhaps we can help you beat your competitor.

Check out (Fresh Leads for Hospitality Industry Providers)

and contact me to discuss new leads in your area.

Thank you

I think that DC recently changed some legislation about mobile food trucks and their presence around standing businesses. I will look for the link. As for examples of brand extensions, you might think about when a company chooses to deliver. Or when they decide to cater. It's the same idea I think. Or another real example would be Wolfgang Puck and his smaller less expensive places Wolf Gang Puck Express. @Luc Chamberland, hope that helped!

Hello forum members,
Does a mobile food truck that is a brand extension of an existing restaurant become a new restaurant? It's a unique way to leverage an existing establishment by maimizing resources and promoting the brand. Any examples of this in the real world would be worth documenting.

As a rule food and beverage consultants do not affiliate as a group to perform services during new openings and re-concepts. We bring a wealth of knowledge and skills to all clients. Each of us has special skills. Rather than trying to be everything to all clients, I propose a collaboration of professionals to refer leads to each other in our areas of specialization and work together on projects based upon the size and scope of the job.
If you discover a project that doesn't really fit what you do I believe we can generate leads for each other by posting opportunities through this site as well as refer resources (example: I've got some great contacts in design, and equipment suppliers. Not my specialty but through previous projects I know these people are rock solid).
My specialties are restaurant turn-arounds, new openings, tribal gaming food and beverage, layout and design (specific to permanent labor reduction) and construction project management.
I am seeking specialists in other areas such as personnel, recruiting and marketing to refer to.

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
