Stick a fork in whoever has been feeding you lies about restaurants, they’re done. We have the inside scoop on eating out, and we’re dishing it out.
Are you - like me - one of those closet-watchers of restaurant reality shows? You know, the ones where a foul-mouthed and/or burly sledge-wielding Brit bludgeons our American operators with all of the things that they’re doing wrong?
You might find it ironic that one of the aforementioned proponents of local flavors now… Continue

As the Director of Marketing for Cafe Metro in NYC, I was thrilled when noted nutritionist Martha McKittrick wanted to do a feature on our new 100 Under 500 Menu that features a menu of full meal options under 500 calories combined. Not a lot of places have embraced this mind set so I thought I would share it here. You can see see articles and great advise on her great website … Continue

As an enthusiast of social media, I can tell you that to promote any business these days you need to include social media into your strategy. It is a fact that people spend more time these days hooked up on their facebook or Twitter accounts than ever before, making it the best… Continue

There are a great number of excellent restaurant bloggers around the web. Most of these people spend time writing these blogs while also working on starting their own business or holding down a full time job. I personally developed and write seven different blogs related to the restaurant industry. I do this as a method of establishing credibility for my book (Tips²: Tips For Improving Your Tips)… Continue

I’m 19 days into my personal challenge. (Check out #TR30days on Twitter) For those of you who don’t know this was peer pressure prompted by my significant other Susan and our best friend and Talent Revolution CEO, Amanda Hite. It’s pretty simple – you create a bucket list for 30 days of your life and you… Continue

This isn’t an article about becoming a maverick in marketing, PR or achieving “the bottom line” results that make us some kind of Gods of the industry so if that’s what you were looking for then hit the little X in the right hand corner (red dot to the left if you’re a MAC) and move to AdWeek.com.
What this is, for those that did stay with me here, a celebration and acknowledgment of those who are honored… Continue

I just purchased a used car, eh hem, I mean a pre-owned vehicle. Usually
I break out in hives when it’s time to purchase a vehicle however this
time it was different. I must preface this by mentioning that I tried to
buy a vehicle for 3 days at another dealership and they couldn’t put
together a deal that would entice me. That wasn’t the case at Glenn Auto
It started with me surfing the net and realizing that Glenn had some

As a former Exec Chef 9X across the USA, it's my professional belief that the restaurant industry has much to learn from - and teach to - the specialty coffee/tea segment. From time to time I'll cross-post here in FohBoh the adventures of my deep-immersion knowledge-build in the world of specialty coffee and tea.
I’ve been drinking coffee and tea all… Continue

Technology is completely changing the game for service industries. You would not be reading this post two years ago if it weren’t for the atomic explosion of the social web.
I believe paper comment cards are dead.
They have zero value today. For reasons enumerated by several sources here in FohBoh and my own observations, I declare the paper comment card an archealogical relic of an earlier age. If you are still using paper comment cards, you’re a dinosaur.
I also… Continue

In my line of business, it’s not uncommon to hear horror stories. Stories about candidates who have, let’s just say, approached the interview process the wrong way.
Often, candidates seeking new opportunities are in a whole new world. They’re out of the element and unsure of the best means for finding new options. That discomfort sometimes leads to frustration and sometimes frustration leads to poor interview performance.
What is, perhaps, less talked about is the poor… Continue

One of the great things I get to do for a living is meet people. Since we specialize in the restaurant, on-site foodservice and hospitality industries, one of the great perks I get is the ability, nay job requirement, to dine out.
The truth is that we find many of the great people we place [into new job opportunities] through our direct recruiting efforts. There’s no better way to see a potential candidate’s skills, then to see him or her in a restaurant, in action, leading the team… Continue

Do you remember the stories your parents and grandparents used to tell you about walking miles in the cold and snow? I think the lesson was to teach patience. If you work hard and remain on the right path, you’ll get to where you’re going. Patience was a virtue.
Then, we moved into the fast lane…highways and byways, computers and cell phones, internet and social media.
Change occurs right in front of us, and the speed of change continues to increase. Technology and… Continue

Every day, we are confronted with situations that require us to make decisions. Some decisions are easy. Some are not. Yet, each day we face the world not knowing what we’ll have to decide.
It’s a challenge that I suspect doesn’t get much thought. We tend to develop “I’ll take it as it comes” attitudes. Some folks hide under the guise of an “I can handle anything” mentality. Others are a bit more prepared, and work to develop… Continue

From the very beginning of my recruitment career, I chose not to think of myself as a headhunter. Instead, I view myself as a relationship builder. Regardless of industry or specialty, I enjoy the chase. I like seeking out talented people and getting to know them. Once I understand motivators and requirements, I can identify opportunities specific to the individual. Clearly, I’m candidate-centric. I want candidates to not only be qualified for the positions they’re interviewing for, but to also… Continue

You go through the interviewing and hiring process with an employer you’re excited about. You jump through every hoop. You meet with people from the department you’ll be working in. You even meet people you may not ever see ever again, and you impressed everyone. You know you kicked butt and took names. You are feeling confident.
There it is…the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel. You can sense it. You are going back to work with a renewed energy. You’re motivated and very… Continue
