It's been a while since I have been around FohBoh and I miss you guys and all your wonderful help.
My husband and I are expecting our first baby in August, and I would really like to get some great recipes from anyone who has them.
Natural baby foods and toddler foods. Anyone have some great suggestions or ideas for me?
P.S. For the baby shower my friend is throwing a Luao and I was wondering what kinds of marinades… Continue

Hey all! I know I've been gone a little while, but I was just curious about how everyone is doing in the restaurants right now? I know times are tough, but what sorts of things are being done to keep the guests coming in the restaurants?
I know my company, a franchise of Applebee's, has extended our happy hour. It is now Monday thru Friday 11-7 and 10-close half off all appetizers and all alcohol except shots and shooters. Then they are serving half off Perfect Draft Beers all day on… Continue

I was learning about the different types of market structures today, and learned that restaurants are Monopolistic Competition markets. Which means, many producers try to make differenciated products. It is so hard to make your restaurants different from others, when really they are all the same. Chilli's, Applebee's, Ruby Tuesdays, T.G.I.Fridays, etc.
McDonald's, Burger King, Wendy's, etc.
They all try to do something different, but it is all still the same. Why is that?

You can buy a pretzel for .30 cents at the grocery store. A street vendor sells them for $2.00. The street vendor is better off, and you are worse off.
True or False and why?

1. If your server was very rude to you?
2. If your server was very pleasant to you?
3. If the manager never came to your table when he/she said that they would?
As a manager, what would you do?
1. If your guest was unhappy with their service?
2. If your guest wanted to compliment their server?
How are people handling things in the restaurants? I am just curious to see how many differences there are.

I thought that this was a cool thing to talk about today!
This morning when I got to work, I walked to the back of the restaurant to get inside. As I was walking, I passed by a gentleman who was cleaning our parking lot and I said "Hi"! He said Hi back and asked "How are you?" and I said "Great, and you?" He said, "Good".
Then I walked into the restaurant and started opening up the bar. As I was doing that, the man came inside and said to me, "You know what? You made me… Continue
