"I think what he meant was that they would see the app icon, not necessarily constant updates (which would be incredibly annoying, as you pointed out)"

Andrew Baber replied to Ryan Gold's discussion Does your restaurant have an iPhone App?
"From what I understand most POS systems can allow a simple XML feed as an order input (assuming the menus are properly aligned). I've been speaking with MetroORDER and SalesVu on this front and it seems doable. Some of the awesome perks of a…"

"Do you find that restaurants are more interested in the advertising that a mobile app brings or the potential for increased orders? I'm curious as to why you aren't able to order with the app itself. While it is super useful to have a…"

Welcome Andrew,
Thanks for joining FohBoh. Let's see if we can connect regarding potential business development. I'm involved with mobile food, farm to table initiatives and community shellfish farms. Any chance some of your catering could incorporate mobile oyster bars? The general concept involves freshly harvested oysters from Tomales Bay, transported to a venue within hours of harvest and expertly shucked for the enjoyment of patrons. Let me know?

Hi Andrew,

What brings you to FohBoh? I suggest that you join a couple of groups that relate to your catering business, and connect with other like-minded FohBoh members. In fact, you and Luc Chamberland may have something in common...he also operates a SF-based food business.

Stay connected. Use this community, and contact me anytime.

If you are looking for capital to start or grow your restaurant, create the next 501c3, develop and launch the next app for the restaurant industry,or want to help your peers in some meaningful way, we want to know about it.


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.
