Fabienne Cocheteau's insight:

Dining out: another way of meditation?

One of the key drivers for dining out slips from communication with others to the communication with our inner self.

Chicago's Garvey Food Court has a McDonald's, a Dunkin Donuts and a vending machine that sells kale.
Fabienne Cocheteau's insight:

Here is another example of vending machines offering healthy and fresh food. The challenge in this business model is to maintain profitability in the daily service for supplying the machines of new fresh food each morning and for getting back unsold products at the end of the day.

Restaurant Social Media Top 10 [Infographic]

Restaurant Social Media Top 10 [Infographic] | Foodservice around the world | Scoop.it

Next month, restaurant marketing, communications and customer service professionals will gather in Chicago for the second annual Foodservice Social Media Universe (#FSMU) -- the first and only conference to provide social media insights and best practices specifically for restaurant operators.

In advance of #FSMU (I'll be emceeing the event, BTW), we thought it would be interesting to compare the social media reach of the biggest brands in the QSR and fast casual segments. We've compiled the results into the infographic below.

A word of caution as you view the infographic...As you'll undoubtedly learn at #FSMU, a successful social media strategy is about much more than just accumulating the highest number of "likes" or followers. Real success will come from how effectively you engage your followers and how well you use that engagement to improve your bottom line.
