The Return of The Hospitality Formula

It has been a while since this site has been updated. In fact it was the longest pause since the network was started. Let me start out by assuring you that the site is going to be around for quite some time. The pause had nothing to do with a lack of writing, but rather some exciting changes coming soon. These sites have always been a passion of mine. Unfortunately, or fortunately depending on your outlook, it has created many challenges that have prevented me from updating.

Since the last update a number of opportunities have kept me away from blogging. More clients are actively seeking me out to design websites for them. I have accepted several new clients for marketing and search engine optimization. I have a massive new training project underway that will change the way restaurant owners look at social media. There have been a few new media opportunities as well. I will have more details on the biggest one soon, but I can tell you that I will be making an appearance on a show you are familiar with very soon. I also am now settled into my new office after moving and ready to bring you even more of the sometimes readable posts you have grown accustomed to.

Monday marks the start of new posts. I will be leading off with what may be the most important post I have ever written. A restaurant industry giant has done something so repugnant that they must be called out on it. I have not seen much of this story in the server blogosphere. I am making sure everything is in order with the post, but let me warn you this will be huge. This is a post you should all be concerned with and a call to action for the industry as well as the guests.

I also want to take a moment before we get started to thank the fine folks at The Pitch for naming me Kansas City’s Best Server of 2012. It was a huge honor to be given this award again this year. In a town with so many great servers, I am incredibly flattered to receive this award. I should also thank my former nemesis Charles Ferruzza for the amazing write up. It is a privilege to receive such high praise from someone I am proud to call a mentor and a friend.

Thank you to everyone for bearing with me during this pause. Get ready for Monday’s post. It is going to be a big one.
