In Vino Veritas LXXV: The Problem With Food Wines
In Vino Veritas LXXV: The Problem With Food Wines — By Larry Mogelonsky

Hotel Mogel Consulting Limited · 5 Dec

It happens all too often now. I'm dining with my wife, a friend or a business associate for lunch and we are both in need of a morsel of libation. But as the sun is still out, a bottle is simply too much - a point that is metaphorically and literally driven in by the glint of my white Mercedes-Benz station wagon near the far end of the parking lot.

Implementing Revenue Management in Your Restaurants: A Case Study with Fairmont Raffles Hotels International
Implementing Revenue Management in Your Restaurants: A Case Study with Fairmont Raffles Hotels International — By Sheryl Kimes

Cornell · 4 Dec

In 2015, Fairmont Raffles Hotels International implemented a system-wide revenue management program in its restaurants. Starting with an analysis of baseline data, Fairmont applied a five-step revenue management process to highlight potential revenue-enhancement opportunities. Restaurant managers and employees were invited to suggest tactics and strategies drawn from three categories: (1) all-purpose strategies, (2) strategies to use when a restaurant is busy (hot), and (3) strategies to use when a restaurant is not busy (cold). Appropriately chosen strategies were simple to implement in most cases, and guests often were pleased with the operational and menu changes. Within a year of implementation, Fairmont restaurants that implemented revenue management had generated five times more revenue growth than those not applying the program.
