If it’s one thing I’ve noticed about the people who are dominating the hospitality industry these days, it’s their innovative thinking. It’s one thing to stay with the times, but I’ve noticed that most of the top hospitality leaders are looking towards the future. How do they do that? Well, they have their ear to the ground. They are always learning from other great leaders and testing out ideas.
The Festive season is synonymous with family get-togethers, parties, lots of food and of course drinks. But, for those working in the hospitality industry it also means plenty of guests, an overload of orders, and quite possibly a few people who get a little too carried away with the extra “cheer”.
Understanding what to do when things get out of hand can not only prevent accidents from happening within your business but also ensure the safety of your guests and staff for the entirety of the night.
It’s the second most consumed beverage in the world after water, yet tea is rarely given center stage. However, more and more restaurants, bars and hotels around the world are extending their tea lists beyond the classic English Breakfast or Oolong to accommodate for customers who can’t or don’t wish to drink alcohol or coffee, and to follow in the footsteps of venues that are rapidly gaining in popularity due to their tea menus.
Running a local coffee shop doesn’t mean that you can only attract customers in your local area. With the rise of the internet, you can now market to an audience on a much larger scale and can easily grow your client base with the click of a button.
Why is this so important? Well, digital content rakes in conversion rates six times higher than any other marketing method. Using only a fraction of the traditional marketing budget, you can generate more fresh leads and earn new clients rather quickly.
