28May14

What does this mean to your business?

If your business has been around for a long time, like our “casual restaurants” have, you should know the latest trends that might affect your business. It’s not hard to pay attention to your customers and the trends; you just have to ask them.

Don’t Let Your Customers Get Away from You and Other Bad Business Practices (Part 2)

27May14

Casual dining in general has been hit by the economy. It’s no longer fast, and the food hasn’t changed for years.
Where is everyone going? They’re going to “fast casual restaurants ” lead by Panera Bread. The perception of Panera is healthy, faster and customizable food. If you don’t want potato chips, you can [...]

Price Sensitive

Brand A, is a mature brand and has a strong following. Brand A customers have a strong preference for that product and are willing to pay for it. The premium they pay for Brand A is part of the value of that brand. If enough loyal customers routinely buy that product, Brand A will be [...]

Don’t Let Your Customers Get Away From You and Other Bad Business Practices (Part 1)

22May14

I was listening to an interesting discussion about the “casual dining” groups of restaurants the other day, i.e. Red Lobster and Olive Garden just to refresh your memory. Is it surprising to learn they’re losing business? When was the last time you couldn’t wait to go to Olive Garden? Things have changed, but it doesn’t [...]

Collision or Cultivation: Millenials and the Z-Generation In the Workplace (Part 4)

21May14

Look around you at work. Do you feel aspects of the core company or organizational beliefs shine through in your workspace? Or are company values mis-aligned with your workspaces?

Collision or Cultivation: Millenials and the Z-Generation In the Workplace (Part 2)

16May14

Millennials and the Z Generation want to be engaged at work and believe in what they’re doing. They also want more autonomy at work and believe work is 24/7, not 8-5 as Rob Asghar from Forbes recently wrote. Their idea of boundaries vary differently from Gen Y, X and Boomers. Many of them have entered into the workforce [...]

Collision or Cultivation: Millenials and the Z-Generation In the Workplace (Part 1)

15May14

Preparing the workspace of the present and not to distant future for Millenials and the Z-generation should be a critical item on the short-list in the C-suite.
