Tips on Starting a Mobile Food Business

Mobile food business certainly has many advantages for entrepreneurs. As compared to those traditional restaurants, mobile food business has lower start-up costs. In addition, locations and operations hours can be more flexible.

This ABC News video further offers some suggestions for mobile food entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurs need to consider the following questions:
1. What type of mobile food business do you want to start? (i.e. franchised vs. independent, food type, scale of the business).
2. Do you want to become a restricted or unrestricted food vender? Restricted food vender only sells pre-prepared food from other approved venders.
3. How much do you know the market? Market research will help.
4. How do you get the permits for your operations? You need to check with the state government agencies. Sometimes, you may find yourself in a waiting list for the permit. However, offering healthy alternative food may help you get your application ahead of the line.
5. What are your start-up fixed and variable costs?
6. Where do you store your food? A restaurant or commissary will work, but not the refrigerator(s) at home.

Yammer: A Social Networking Site Exclusively for the Workplace

Effective internal communications among employees are related to some desirable organizational outcomes, such as robust morale, a clear vision, low turnover, and high employee engagement. The question is what platform can serve the purpose. This ABC News video introduces “ Yammer ,” an exclusive internal communication tool for companies. A user must use a valid company e-mail address to sign up for an account. Once an account is validated, the user will be led to the company page that is pretty much like a Facebook page. The difference is that only the users whose e-mail addresses share the same domain can see the wall and communicate with each other. I have no question about whether Yammer could be a useful internal communication tool for companies, but I just wonder: how many social networking sites do people need for communication? Why people have to “create” so many platforms or channels for “effective communications”? To many people, Facebook is only for “friends,” whe

Can leisure and work-from-home demand stimulate extended-stay hotel growth beyond COVID-19?

The lodging industry is   struggling   to fill the empty rooms in 2020. For months, U.S. hotels are running at an occupancy of 50% or lower.     Not every segment   suffers the same impact from the pandemic, however. Demand for   home-sharing  facilities had already bounced back over the summer. Airbnb reported a higher booking than last year. Marriott’s home-sharing arm is also doing well, seeing a sevenfold increase in booking over last summer.     Similar to what a residential rental or home-sharing facility   offers , guestrooms in extended-stay hotels also feature a full-size kitchen or a kitchenette. Extended-stay hotels are designed for travelers who want to stay at a “home” when away from home.
