Restaurant Manager Professional and Social Network

I often marvel at the industry's plague with management individuals who often feel stuck, or rather are stuck in the daily grind/routine of the their restaurant management jobs.

I love what we do! I love the energy, the interaction, the problem solving, the relationships, the successes, the failures, the long hours, the food, the wine, the coffee, the tea, the beer, the special events, the banquets, the caterings, the industry shows, the thrill of a busy service... all of it!

But I have spent too much time with uninspired managers!

I believe a some of the lack of inspiration is attributable to an employer's lack of investment in engaging their management staffs. But I also believe we as managers would be much more engaged if "WE" made more of an effort to read, to learn, experiment and educate ourselves about subjects relevant to our profession.

Furthermore, we would be more engaged if we could discuss and share our experiences with like minded and similarly experienced individuals in our industry.

I believe that our careers in restaurant management are often regarded as second class. And further believe that we succumb to that notion.

We are left feeling that our jobs are unglamorous and perhaps even ashamed to admit that we are restaurant managers.

We are not any less professional than any other occupation. Our credentials may often come from the school of hard knocks, but our profession should be no less esteemed .

The landscape and the educational accreditation of our industry is vastly changing, but no degree, certification or diploma will ever substantiate the worth of our profession if we don't take pride in who we are and what we do.

I hope by creating this network, we can begin to associate with individuals who share common interests and experiences. Additionally I hope to create a forum where like minded professional restaurant managers can engage in intellectual conversation, and have interaction that inspires them to pursue more engaging endeavors in their restaurant management careers. Ultimately, I hope these interactions will embolden the pride in our profession that is too often lacking.

And what the heck, maybe we'll even get together and have a drink.

-Cheers

We have a multi unit operation and are looking for an IT/software system that will help us capture data on revenues, purchasing, inventory, labor, etc. - that will feed into the G/L, show trending and generate reports. Any suggestions?

I am a restaurant manager for a corporate franchise chain. I am looking for some inspiration. My store is very low volume and our marketing sucks. They give our marketing managers no room to really be creative and market to our communities past fundraisers that aren't working. I think I'm getting frustrated with it. We are so slow and we have four managers. There's always this "what do I do" lul in the day. It's not fast paced AT ALL. Anyone have any advice?

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: James Patten: The best computer interface? Maybe ... your hands - James Patten (2013)

"The computer is an incredibly powerful means of creative expression," says designer and TED Fellow James Patten. But right now, we interact with computers, mainly, by typing and tapping. In this nifty talk and demo, Patten imagines a more visceral, physical way to bring your thoughts and ideas to life in the digital world, taking the computer interface off the screen and putting it into your hands.

TED: Hamish Jolly: A shark-deterrent wetsuit (and it's not what you think) - Hamish Jolly (2013)

Hamish Jolly, an ocean swimmer in Australia, wanted a wetsuit that would deter a curious shark from mistaking him for a potential source of nourishment. (Which, statistically, is rare, but certainly a fate worth avoiding.) Working with a team of scientists, he and his friends came up with a fresh approach — not a shark cage, not a suit of chain-mail, but a sleek suit that taps our growing understanding of shark vision.

TED: Michel Laberge: How synchronized hammer strikes could generate nuclear fusion - Michel Laberge (2014)

Our energy future depends on nuclear fusion, says Michel Laberge. The plasma physicist runs a small company with a big idea for a new type of nuclear reactor that could produce clean, cheap energy. His secret recipe? High speeds, scorching temperatures and crushing pressure. In this hopeful talk, he explains how nuclear fusion might be just around the corner.

TED: Sarah Lewis: Embrace the near win - Sarah Lewis (2014)

At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?
