Retail Foods contemporary relevance.

Retail foodservice is undergoing a transformation or is it simply a migration from traditional cooking from scratch to Ready-2-eat and heat-N-eat fresh and prepared food.  Here are some interesting view of a changing retail food world or not.  Maybe the more change the more things are the same. 

1.        Hudson Riehle  stated recently that 26% of chefs ranked smartphone apps as the top restaurant technology trend in 2012.  Can anyone be surprised? 

2.       McDonald's has "promoted" Tweet 2nite that goes to "Party with #BigMac" & Facebook RSVP link. 

3.       Google gobbles up restaurant-recommendation app. 

4.       TaskRabbit raises $17.8M, plans to hop into Seattle with errand service http  how many of the errands will be food related?  We suspect many. 

You better be good because Santa Claus is coming to a White Castle in a town near you this holiday season! More than 370 participating restaurants are hosting Breakfast with Santa from 8 to 10:30 a.m. Saturday, December 17. This is the first year White Castle is hosting Breakfast with Santa.
