Driving year-round catering success
Here come the holidays, bringing operators sought-after catering opportunities. However, catering deserves to be much more than just a year-end affair. Catering corporate meetings, conferences and other private events should be an important part of a restaurant operator’s full-time business model, attracting incremental sales from new clients and encouraging more business from existing clients.
Pleasing the away-from-home hot beverage customer
Eager to maximize their hot beverage sales and profits, restaurant operators are brushing up on vital details in order to meet consumer expectations for flavorful and convenient premium coffee.
A brand doesn't have to be a beverage specialist to drive traffic and sales with hot beverages. With a little inspiration from players in the specialty beverage segment and a modest investment in training, equipment and supplies—such as sturdy and functional cups, cup sleeves and bulk hot beverage carriers—restaurant operators of all types can run profitable hot coffee and tea programs.
