CRM Definition:
Customer relationship management (CRM) is a term that refers to practices, strategies and technologies that companies use to manage and analyze customer interactions and data throughout the customer lifecycle, with the goal of improving business relationships with customers, assisting in customer retention and driving sales growth. CRM systems are designed to compile information on customers across different channels -- or points of contact between the customer and the company -- which could include the company's website, telephone, live chat, direct mail, marketing materials and social media. CRM systems can also give customer-facing staff detailed information on customers' personal information, purchase history, buying preferences and concerns.

Restaurant top 10

So, you’re a foodie, all your friends rave about your cooking, you’ve watched every episode of “Chopped,” "Iron Chef" & “Diners, Dirve-Ins and Drives” and think it would be a great idea to open your own restaurant. Is this a good idea or not so much?

Well, the standard wisdom is that roughly 60% of restaurants will fail during their 1st year in business. This is slightly higher than other business models. No, the failure rate alone should not become your barrier to entry into this particular business arena. It just means that you need to do your homework better than the other 60% opening their doors this year.

Here is my top 10 list of factors that a prospective restaurant owners needs to consider:

  1. Experience: 
    Having professional experience running a restaurant is a great place to start when considering opening your own establishemnt. However, if you’re the “foodie” we’re talking about with little to no practical experience, you’ll do well to bolster yourself with those who do! A consultant, like one of the professionals at the The Lion’s Share Network can work with restaurant owners throughout all phases of planning, design and implementation, helping to ensure long term success.
