Luxury Movie Theater

Probably because people spend less money on travel and restaurants, movies become more popular these days. Sales are up to $10.6 billion. The trends are: we see more 3D movies; restaurants in a theater location often offer dinner-movie specials. Now, consumers can even enjoy “luxury experience” in theaters.

As reported in the video, Boston introduced a high-end movie theater in August 2008. In addition to luxury seating, consumers can request service from waiter and waitress during movies. USA Today also discussed the luxury trend of theaters. Developers are building more luxury dine-in movie theaters. This “dine-in” concept has been tested in Australia and Singapore, which attract 2.5 million moviegoers a year ($35 each). Amenities in some luxury theaters include adult-only clubs, lounges, and outlets for Hors d’Oeavres.

Luxury theaters create a new experience for consumers. Just because they want to enjoy a movie, they don’t have to give up tasty food and good drink for soda and popcorns anymore. The market of luxury theaters provides another business opportunity for restaurants and the managed services segment.

Would you consider working in a high-end movie theater? As a consumer, would you prefer to watch a movie in a luxury movie theater?

Want a job at McDonald’s? Now, it is as easy as talking to Alexa

The job application process begins with the applicants saying:
Alexa, help me get a job at McDonald’s.”

Is today's market too tough for upscale restaurants?

Operating a restaurant is never easy, but is it particularly challenging for upscale restaurants?

Restaurants Unlimited Inc., for instance, which operates 35 fine-dining and “polished casual” eateries, filed for bankruptcy in Delaware last week. Earlier in June, the Four Seasons Restaurant, an iconic spot for power lunch in Manhattan also closed for business after its reopening within less a year.

Are these two examples an isolated case or the tip of the iceberg? Then, if upscale restaurants are struggling to survive in today’s market, what challenges are they facing?

The rising labor cost

According to the Bloomberg report, Restaurant Unlimited Inc. hires 50 salaried employees at the chain’s headquarter in Seattle, plus another 168 full-time and 1,885 part-time restaurant workers. The rising wages in Seattle, San Francisco, and Portland have resulted in a total of $10.6 million wage expenses in the fiscal year of 2019. Nevertheless, its revenue for the year ended in May dropped 1%, at $…

My boyfriend asked if I wanted the donut thing they were trying to push, but I ended up going with a churro.As we received our food, my boyfriend told the server, “Good job on the upsell.”In which we received the same unenthusiastic “thank you” in reply. This all led to a discussion about suggestive selling, how easy it is, how to do it correctly, and how beneficial it is.Of course, this Del Taco drive-through upsell experience did not meet our standards of how to do it correctly, but it worked!

Easy-Peasy
Both my boyfriend and I have sales and hospitality ba…
