Secrets of a $1.4-Billion Chinese Fast Food Enterprise

This ABC News video reveals the secret ingredients of turning Panda Express into a fast food enterprise that had $1.4 billion in sales in 2010 and sells 65 million pounds of sesame chicken a year. They are:

Healthy Life Style
Continuous Learning
Developing Others
Acknowledging Others

It is true. Healthy employees are more productive. Providing supports for continuous education allows people to grow and succeed. It is also important for organizations to develop future leaders and acknowledge employees’ contributions. According to the co-CEO of Panda Express Andrew Cherng, the restaurant chain is not in the business of selling food; its purpose is more about developing people. It seems to me that Panda Express is just another example of why hospitality companies and entrepreneurs need to take good care of their biggest asset --- people. Are you in a “people’s” business? What do you learn from today’s discussion?

  2. There is an increasing need of on demand food delivery app development for eatery mobile application advancement. Using mobile application innovation can help restaurant proprietors cement their quality in the market. At the same time, it can help them advance their image on the web.

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

Will restaurants of the future still need a dining room?

It does not seem the coronavirus is leaving us soon, although we have seen good   progress in developing the vaccine . In recent weeks, many places reported   a surge of new infected COVID-19 cases . Some even resumed   lockdowns   and the mask-mandate order, forcing restaurants to   shut down indoor dining   services again.     As a short-term remedy, restaurants immediately shifted their offering to   curbside pickup and delivery  services.

Here are some examples,     Chipotle opened its first digital-only restaurant     The new prototype, known as the   Chipotle Digital Kitchen , debut in Highland Falls, NY, earlier this month. Different from the traditional Chipotle restaurant, the Chipotle Digital Kitchen features:     A lobby designated for pickup services through off-premise orders.   A see-through kitchen, allowing customers to see, smell, and hear what is going on b

The 2020 hospitality and tourism trends that will likely stay in 2021 and beyond

The COVID-19 pandemic had made an unprecedented impact on the   global economy   in 2020. The good news is the long-waited COVID-19 vaccines will   soon become available . Let’s hope that the coronavirus will disappear soon as we enter the New Year.     Looking back before we look forward   At year-end 2019, I predicted a few   2020 trends   in hospitality, retail, and tourism businesses. For example, I recommended that we should pay special attention to the following areas:      A shifting focus on food delivery, sustainable food, and quick-casual restaurants. Using AI and facial recognition in service operations.   The threats from Google, Amazon, and Airbnb as a (potential, new) giant tourism enterprise in the market.   Investors’ growing interest in boutique retail stores and hotels. Customer loyalty issues as more travel companies adopted the dynamic pricing strategy even in their frequent traveler programs.   Safety issues during travel.     Certainly, the global pandemic was not
