Innovation in cloud-based software and mobile technology today has dramatically increased the ability for businesses to easily capture data to better manage their restaurants. Restaurants can analyze aspects of their business with data that wasn’t previously available or easy to collect. Restaurants can now optimize processes, make better decisions, and save time and money.
Here are some of the best ways a restaurant chain can take action with technology to save on food costs:
The Restaurant Association of Maryland Education Foundation awarded over $11,000 in scholarships this past spring. Most awards went to high school seniors and students already enrolled in culinary programs. Each year RAMEF promotes its scholarships to help young people continue their education in the culinary arts and hospitality management fields.
After a statewide search for candidates, the Restaurant Association of Maryland (RAM) completed the annual nomination process for its Board of Directors. The following list of new Officers and Directors were voted in at the Annual RAM Membership Meeting held at Sysco Baltimore on June 14th.
Missing Man Table displayed at Maggie's Restaurant in Westminster, MD
This Memorial Day weekend, restaurants across the state of Maryland will have “Missing Man” tables set in their dining rooms to honor the American soldiers who have lost their lives or are still missing in action while serving their country. These tables are also referred to as a MIA/POW table, Empty table or Fallen Comrade table.
The Missing Man table is a permanent place of honor found in military dining facilities that are also set up during service balls and other military dining occasions. The tradition of setting a separate table in honor of fallen and missing soldiers has been in place since the end of the Vietnam War. The manner in which the table is decorated is full of special symbols to help us remember the sacrifice these men, women and their families have given to their country.
As families and friends get together this holiday weekend, restaurants across the state will have Missing Man tables set up to remind their customers of those we have lost. The Restaurant Association of Maryland led the effort to educate restaurants on the meaning of the Missing Man table and encouraged their members to participate.
On Friday May 12th, thousands of computer users worldwide logged on and found threats to delete their computer files, which were encrypted, unless they paid up to 300.00 USD or more in Bitcoin payments to the hackers. As of this writing, more than 200,000 systems were attacked in at least 150 countries.
With a plethora of ingredients being purchased daily by restaurant owners, operators and chefs, knowing the most information possible about your products is an advantage that is sometimes left untapped. Local seafood distributor, J.J. McDonnell has developed a series of informative, no-cost classes for area chefs that give an in depth look into the seafood that they are using and the story behind each product.
RAM attended the School of Fish in March, which was co-hosted by Maine's Bristol Seafood. This particular session educated attending chefs on the differences between domestic scallops and Japanese Hokkaidos scallops.
