Why I "Eat More Chikin"

I often ask myself, why are you obsessed with Chick-Fil-A? Maybe it’s their waffle fries, or tasty breakfast options? Maybe the incredible customer service is to blame. Maybe it’s that the nearest location to me is hours away, and we all know absence makes the heart grow fonder. In the end I tend to blame it on the Polynesian sauce.   …

Evolving Social Media Management Services

Social media is a force of change that is evolving how we work in the marketing suite. When I founded FohBoh 40 months ago as a restaurant social network, social media was a foreign language. Now, it is almost a language in it of itself with "experts and everything.” As with any profession, there are those more skilled than others, disparate philosophies, even early best practices based on varying levels of experience. I don’t believe any one possesses the dominant view,…

Do Social Media Experts Exist?

More and more I am seeing articles, blogs, webinars, etc talking about the “social media expert”. This title has become one of my biggest pet peeves. Before I read or watch any of these I always seem to have the same initial overwhelming reaction. To me, social media experts don’t exist. You may be thinking, why would someone who lives and breathes social media and executes social media campaigns for several restaurant clients say something like this? Allow me to explain.

What's Up for 2011? Social Integration

2010 was a very interesting year for restaurants and restaurant social media. That means it was a pretty amazing year for us here at FohBoh. Why? Because it’s just starting to gel and we can see investment starting to take place. As a start-up, it’s always a good thing to be ahead of the curve. Be the “first mover”, as they say, but not too far ahead. There are also many advantages to being “second mover”. I’ve written about this before citing Google, Oracle,…

Perspectives on the New Conversation Economy

This is an incredibly interesting concept: an economy fueled by dialog, by the crowd, via the Internet. We are using social networking platforms as the communications channel of choice. It's an amazing shift in human behavior that is real-time, all the time.


Now that nearly 82% of us are using some form of social network to interact, there is an opportunity to reflect on this and gain some perspective. In other works, why you should care.


First,…

Business Anniversaries

Interesting things, these anniversaries. We celebrate personal and family anniversaries and of course, the wedding anniversary.

Rounding it Up



Two of my passions in life are the industry in which I work and giving back to my community. I'm even more excited when I get to combine the two. Throughout my years at FohBoh I have had some tremendous opportunities to work with some amazing organizations that raise money and give back to their communities and to those less fortunate. The restaurant industry has a unique opportunity to accelerate this effort in a good economy or a bad because lets face it, we all dine…
