More than ever before, you need an effective way to keep in tuch with your guests and referrall partners.
I must be honest with you and share a frustauating statistic.

This is where I try to make up for everything I didn't do on Day One. Okay, so let's just cut right to the confession. I've been a bad boss. (Yeah, already!) You see, I wasn't the only new recruit to start on April Fools Day...
Sarah Atkinson, I'm pleased to announce, has also joined FohBoh as Marketing Coordinator. Sarah has BA in Business Communication with a minor in Marketing, plus seven years experience at the Cheesecake Factory… Continue

6 quick examples that will start to increase your sales!
1. A strategy and a plan: Marketing must be planned, consistent and repetitive to be effective. Many entrepreneurs take a scatter-shot approach, trying one thing then another. Instead, develop a marketing plan and budget that you can execute.
2. Defined target market: Focusing in on a particular market segment — or niche — gives focus and direction to your marketing efforts. For instance, if you’re an accountant,… Continue

I came upon the social network site purely by chance. Wasn't looking for it -- no siree. But here I am, nonetheless. I hope to make a few friends and learn a few things too.
So here's to food pleasures and new learning experiences...and everything else in between.

Well, my web site is under reconstruction at the moment, so I thought I would use this opportunity to introduce myself to fellow FohBoh members. I call myself a food service consultant - but with a twist - I am a student and Teacher of Applied Meta-Physics (The Science of Be-ing and Knowing) and have over 32 years of experience in almost every type of food service establishment.
I am also a Vegetarian - in transition to becoming Vegan - I run a Food Service Consulting company called… Continue

It's still going on...through tomorrow and it is quite the gathering. I heard that combined, the CEO's in attendance, run over 500,000 of the 945,000 restaurants operating in the U.S. market! If that's true, I am truly impressed.
One of the more interesting (and passionate) presentations was a pessimistic economic perspective presented by the People Report. More like a sky-is-falling announcement that everyone in the industry should… Continue

So I bought a plane ticket. It cost me $325. My plans changed and I now had a credit with one of the major air carriers. No problem. I know I'll have to pay a change fee at a later date (usually $100) but not a huge deal. "At least I'll be able to use the credit"… Continue

Your first day on a new job at a new company is always a little bit weird. Even if you've been doing something similar for years somewhere else and have a lot of confidence in general, that first day can be awkward.
You wonder... am I doing the right thing? Will these people accept me? Who are the players? Who are the sharks? Where are they hiding? And will I be eaten alive? Even if you have grand plans to change the world, you still… Continue
