I have a theory about how the resturant industry conducts real estate business such as site selection, development and construction management. I is hard for me to understand why chains would want to take on overhead to build up real estate and construction departments in this economic climate. I have extensive experience in all these disiplines and I think outsourcing these functions is the future. I am new to this blog, but I thought I would get the word out about my services.
Thanks for the comment to my blog. Good catch on your part. It was a mistake in transcription and as the hour was late I didn't catch it. The actual number Steve Kron stated was 12,000. I think the point is still the same. I have already posted the correction.
Thanks for reading, following and commenting. I hope you will continue!

We distribute the same through sms (text), email, Facebook, iPhone, Blackberry, print, widgets, and affiliates. We also plan to integrate with all the major POS at a later stage. Any ideas/suggestions from you most welcome.
If you have a couple of minutes I would love to talk to you about securing financing for our second/third location and the walls I'm running into. Please email me your number or how I can reach you. Thanks and Have a Great Day!
Rod, Thanks for the comment.
I have been in the travel industry a good while. I enjoy following the industry and studying the buying habits of people and their travel purchases. I also like to see from the supplier's standpoint. Why did they choose a particular ad campaign ? Who are the focus groups ? A lot of peole don't realize that places like resorts and cruise lines market their property as a destination.
For example if you're on a cruise that calls on Cozumel, Jamaica and Nassau. You also have another destination : the ship. Many ships have their own theme.
I 've watched different advertising and marketing forms and how they relate to travel and tourism. I find it very interesting. I am starting to study how each state does its marketing for travel and tourism. I started a discussion on FOHBOH a few days ago
about travel marketing and how restaurants and food outlets come into play. We've had some good dialogue.
