When a global pandemic forces you to close your dining rooms and focus solely on takeout and delivery, it comes in handy to have protocols for that in place already.

Of course Tony Darden, president of Mooyah Burgers, Fries and Shakes, an all-franchised concept based in Plano, Texas, with about 70 locations, had no idea that the novel coronavirus was going to transform the way that people interact with restaurants, but takeout and delivery were becoming more of a priority for consumers even before disaster struck. http://ow.ly/9V1Y50ztv5D

How chef Sam Marvin is surviving after he had to make the transition from three restaurants to one butcher shop

Pivot seems to be the mantra of the hour for independent restaurant owners and chefs trying to survive as the effects of the coronavirus pandemic subsist. Chef Sam Marvin, owner of Echo & Rig in Sacramento and Las Vegas, and Pluck in Carlsbad, Calif. is no different. Over the past six weeks, Marvin has been forced to close all three of his restaurants, although he was able to keep the butcher shop on the first floor of his Las Vegas restaurant and has focused his entire attention on pivoting that retail experience.

Hi folks! I am an MBA student at UC Berkeley and my partner owns a cocktail bar. I'm working on a school project to understand how we might help restaurants manage their online food delivery. With COVID impacting all our lives so intensely, it feels like this is hopefully a helpful pursuit. Would anyone in this group be willing to connect with me for a 15-20 minute phone or video conversation in the next couple of weeks? Your perspective is truly valuable. Thank you!

I was very excited after reading the heading, “The Art of Menu Pricing” since our restaurant is in the process of updating the menus. Unfortunately, however, the title was misleading, much like Yahoo News headings. I expected to see some science to pricing, perhaps ideas about whether or not to include dollar symbols or whether it is better to use single digits (8) or the traditional 7.99. Instead, the “Art” was actually advertisement for “Subcription Dining” and converting a high-end restaurant into two restaurants so that there are, “people in seats at all times.” The very last section, “Doing the Work,” was the most helpful, and could have been expanded upon and made for a more helpful guide to the Art of Menu Pricing. Examples of restaurants who are implenting strategies using the “systems” approach would also be quite useful information. In a world of junk media, please be one that publishes real food for us to feast on.
