Founder of Slapfish, a FoodTruck Turned Fast Casual Shares Success Stories and Some of his Past Mistakes

Founder of Slapfish, a FoodTruck Turned Fast Casual Shares Success Stories and Some of his Past Mistakes

by Kerri Adams @ National USA - Foodable Network

Once upon a time, Slapfish, which now has six stores in California, was just a food truck cruising southern Cali serving fish sandwiches and tacos with sustainable seafood.  Andrew Gruel,the 36-year-old founder of the concept, started working in the fine dining industry, but his life changed when he began a position as the director of Seafood at the Aquarium of the Pacific.  In 2011, he missed the restaurant industry and decided to start a new venture because he recognized that there was a gap in the restaurant market.  "At the time there was a huge gap in the market. The only option you had for seafood was fine dining or cheap Long John Silver’s style. In every other sector of food you started to see better pizza, the better burger movement. In the fast casual realm, a step up from fast food and a step down from casual dining, there was nothing for seafood," said Gruel to "Forbes." With limited funds available, Gruel leased a truck and started to serve only three menu items out of it big sloppy fish sandwich, a fish taco and a lobster roll. He would hit up popular areas in Orange County and Los Angeles first.

This Service Aims to Help Restaurants Better Manage Online Orders

by Vanessa Rodriguez @ National USA - Foodable Network

It seems like we live in a time-strapped society. And now, with advances in technology and the expectation to have that technology work for you to make life easier, there is high consumer demand for the ability to have what we want, when we want and how we want it. Restaurant operators are in the service business and with that comes the responsibility to adapt to demand. Resistance could potentially lead to becoming forgotten by those who pay your bills— customers. Needless to say, operators now have to deal with orders coming from all sorts of places. For one, orders that come from guests on location (of course), via phone for pickup or delivery, via food delivery apps like UberEATS and/or an equivalent, and even via online through food ordering services, like GrubHub and the like. Plus, with the rise of restaurant openings and an increasing market competition, most restaurant operators have to learn to cater to all to not lose out on their market share and stay afloat or, better yet, profit. What is a restaurant operator to do to keep track of everything?

First Amazon Go Grocery Store Opens to Public in Seattle

First Amazon Go Grocery Store Opens to Public in Seattle

by Foodable Network @ National USA - Foodable Network

Amazon, Monday, opened their the first brick-and-mortar grocery store where no physical checkouts are required. Amazon Go has been in beta-testing with Amazon employees since 2016 and has just opened to the public. It was expected to open to the public more quickly but there were some teething problems with correctly identifying shoppers of similar body types - and children moving items to the wrong places on shelves, according to an Amazon insider. Transactions in the store are all done digitally using Amazon’s “Just Walk Out Technology.” It uses hundreds of ceiling-mounted cameras and electronic sensors to identify each customer and track the items they select while walking through the store. Purchases are then billed to customers' credit cards when they leave the store. Back in 2016, Foodable covered Amazon’s announcement of this concept and our experts chimed in on how these futuristic grocery stores could impact restaurant operators and their businesses. “First and foremost, what a great wakeup call for our industry. If anyone in our industry is taking anything for granted, what a gift Amazon is providing us...Amazon knows how to deliver experience,” restaurant brand coach Rudy Miick, CMC, MA, said. “In today’s market, people like convenience. Just like any business that offers a competitive product, there will be some loss of market share to restaurants. However, this is a great opportunity to model the process and fit it to your concept,” Andrew Carlson, consultant and author of Customer Service Is the Bottom Line, said. The store offers pre-made meals, consumer packaged goods, Amazon Fresh meal kits, alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, and a bunch of average grocery items. As of now, Amazon has not said if it will be opening more Go stores, which are separate from the Whole Foods chain that it bought last year for $13.7 billion. Only time will tell what's next.

All Consuming: The Temple Club worships Vietnamese food


San Francisco Chronicle

Geoffrey Deetz was last seen in these parts 16 years ago, running a handful of restaurants in the East Bay. Since we last met him, he's been living and working in Vietnam. It probably goes without saying, but a person does not usually linger in a place for a decade and a half unless he has fallen for its charms. Now Deetz is back in Oakland. He returned from Southeast Asia with such a craving for American hamburgers that he decided to open his own lunch counter. I'm kidding. He's here to cook Vietnamese food for us. I've come across patches of fine Vietnamese food in the Bay Area - a restaurant here and there in San Francisco, and a nice concentration of good spots in the South Bay.

Here’s How This Program Will Help to Prevent Illegal Fishing

Here’s How This Program Will Help to Prevent Illegal Fishing

by Kerri Adams @ National USA - Foodable Network

31 percent of total fish caught globally, which is worth $34.4 billion annually, is done so illegally. But, a new program is aiming to drastically decrease this percentage. On January 1, the Seafood Import Monitoring Program (SIMP) went live to stop the sale of black market fish in the U.S.  Now fish entering the country must also have specific information about how it was caught . “SIMP asks basic questions about seafood entering the US: who caught it (vessel flag and registration info), what is it (specific species), when was it caught (dates of operation), where (jurisdiction of fishing location) and how it was caught (what type of gear or method was used,)” writes the “Huffington Post.”  13 species groups are now subjected to the questioning, including “abalone, Atlantic Cod, blue crab (Atlantic), dolphinfish (mahi mahi), grouper, king crab (red), Pacific cod, red snapper, sea cucumbers, sharks, shrimp, swordfish and tunas (albacore, bigeye, skipjack, yellowfin and bluefin).”

Dipping into Vietnam / Three simple sauces work magic on almost any dish

Dipping into Vietnam / Three simple sauces work magic on almost any dish


SFGate

Similar to dressings, the sauces are served at room temperature and can be prepared in minutes. Take, for example, bun thit nuong, or rice noodles with grilled pork - a dish that I love to eat at the Ben Thanh market in Saigon. The last time I was there, I remember eagerly watching my favorite noodle vendor cook behind the glass case filled with jars of sauces. When she handed me my bowl, the sweet, savory aroma of grilled meat wafted in my face. The complex flavors resonated in my mouth - the slightly fermented taste of the soft, velvety noodles, the smoky meat, the crisp bean sprouts and cucumbers, the aromatic herbs and the crunchiness of roasted peanuts. No matter what mood you're in, be it for a salad, noodles or fish, the first step in Vietnamese cooking is to build a meal around a dipping sauce. Once you've rounded up a basic list of Vietnamese staples, have bought yourself an automatic insulated rice cooker (perfectly cooked rice is essential) and have mastered the following key dipping sauces, you're ready to recreate a whole host of mouthwatering Vietnamese dishes with ease. Nuoc cham, often referred to as Vietnamese Dipping Sauce, is a light-bodied sauce made by diluting with water nuoc mam, or fish sauce (a concentrated, pungent liquid extracted from anchovies fermented in brine), garlic, chiles, lime juice and sugar. In the U.S., fish sauce is available at Asian markets, specialty stores and some supermarkets. Chile-Lime Sauce makes a fabulous dipping sauce for boiled peel-your-own shrimp, steamed clams and mussels. No matter which recipes become your favorites, dipping sauces play a pivotal role in the overall meal.

Here's Why Fast Food and Dollar Stores Sales are Up and Convenience Store Sales are Down

Here's Why Fast Food and Dollar Stores Sales are Up and Convenience Store Sales are Down

by Kerri Adams @ National USA - Foodable Network

Apparently, American consumers are no longer visiting convenience stores as much to get their snacks and beverages. Instead, they are choosing to visit fast food restaurants or dollar stores. Not to mention, with delivery, E-commerce giants like Amazon and supermarkets that uppin’ the ante to compete, consumers have so many convenient options to get food and basic items.     Because of this, the $550 billion convenience store industry had the slowest sales year since 2013.  That’s why we are seeing super stores like Wawa and RaceTrac pop up all over. These stores are elevating the convenience store industry by offering more food options, online ordering, and loyalty programs– making other long-standing convenience stores with less inventory, hot foods, and technology implemented look tired. “They’re just facing a lot more competition for convenience than ever before, whether it’s for coffee, food service, whether it’s for gasoline,” said Todd Hale, former senior vice president of consumer and shopper insights at Nielsen Co to “Bloomberg.” “Now they have to figure out what they’re going to do in the world of e-commerce.”

Dominique Crenn Develops New Restaurant and Bar Focused on Wine

Dominique Crenn Develops New Restaurant and Bar Focused on Wine

by Denise Toledo @ National USA - Foodable Network

Late next month, Dominique Crenn will be opening her third restaurant, Bar Crenn, directly next to her first. Two-Michelin-star Atelier Crenn has long been known for its avant-garde cuisine inspired by traditional French fare. Bar Crenn will offer a contrast to the new age restaurant with more casual bites. Though she says, she will be heading in the direction of classic French—specifically, dishes she grew up with as a child in Brittany. In an Instagram post earlier this month, Crenn announced that chefs like Alain Ducasse, Guy Savoy, and other three-Michelin-starred chefs will be contributing recipes to the menu of shareable plates next to a number of original recipes from the restaurant. Plates to be expected include tarte flambee, pomme soufflée, and Petit Crenn’s own omelette à l’oursin, The wine list at Bar Crenn is expected to be the greatest differentiator of Bar Crenn with Matt Montrose, wine director of Atelier Crenn, putting together a wine list that skews French and European. There will be low-ABV cocktails as well, which Crenn says will be a nod to French aperitifs. Barr Crenn will share a courtyard with Atelier Crenn. The design is described as homey and warm. “This is more than a wine bar, it’s my living room,” says Crenn. “It’s elegant and it’s warm and thoughtful. We want people to experience the best hospitality there, too.” The new space will also serve as a starting place and end point for Atelier Crenn diners, where they can begin their meal with an aperitif, and finish with dessert and coffee. For those interested in a more casual environment, Crenn says the full tasting menu from Atelier Crenn will be available to a limited number of diners each night. The long-awaited spin-off will open February 20th. Read more at “Robb Report.”

Here's Why Foodable Expert Thinks Lemonade Is an Emerging Brand to Look Out For

by Andrew Carlson @ National USA - Foodable Network

When I was first introduced to Lemonade, I thought the concept was interesting. It wasn’t until I started doing the research behind the storefront when I knew that they were going to make some noise in the industry (for the better). There are a number of different reasons why I think that Lemonade is one of the top emerging brands of 2018. 1. Chef-Driven & Food Conscious They are a chef driven restaurant. The selections you get from their veggies and their meats to their hot dishes; everything is something that you would find in a scratch-kitchen restaurant. What’s really cool about that is they know that people are growing more conscious about what they purchase in terms of food so having a variety of dishes serves them well in this cafeteria style concept.

Adam Sachs No Longer With Saveur

Adam Sachs No Longer With Saveur

by Foodable Network @ National USA - Foodable Network

Saveur editor-in-chief Adam Sachs’s tenure at the food magazine is over. The magazine’s publisher, Bonnier Corporation, laid off 70 staff members at offices in California, New York, and Florida, Recode reported Wednesday. Several worked at Saveur magazine including Saveur digital editor Dan Dao. After news of the layoffs broke, rumors quickly swirled that Sachs was no longer with the company. Sachs confirmed his departure to Grub Street over email but added that he could not comment beyond that. According to the New York Times, Saveur is reducing its publication schedule to four issues a year. Its editorial department now consists of just six full-time employees. The news was met with grim reactions, but on Twitter, editor Alex Testere reaffirmed that the magazine was not folding. “The few of us left are obviously reeling a little bit from losing some of our closest friends and colleagues, but we still have faith that we’ll be able to make Saveur a beautiful quarterly magazine, and also keep up our original digital content,” Testere wrote to Grub Street the day after the news broke. “The layoffs are sad and unfortunate, but I’m personally looking forward to continuing to work with everyone in whatever capacity we can.” Before taking the top position at Saveur after longtime editor James Oseland, Sachs had a long career as a writer covering food and other subjects. He wrote for publications including GQ, Bon Appétit, and Details, and has won several James Beard Foundation Awards. Sachs was brought on before Saveur’s digital relaunch in 2015. “Saveur is special,” Sachs said to the New York Times. “I know there’s an audience for the kind of in-depth, smart reporting the magazine has always been known for. The challenge for anyone in this business now is, how do you package and sell the good stuff in a way that’s sustainable?” Read more about Sachs’ career at Grub Street.

Chipotle Finalizes Price Hikes Across the US

Chipotle Finalizes Price Hikes Across the US

by Denise Toledo @ National USA - Foodable Network

* Chipotle's Sentiment scores have increased and decreased in line with the fast casual stock market prices.  * Chipotle needs to build brand advocates, develop a new message around food safety, and go back to food sourcing basics, & Paul Barron gives more tips.  * Chipotle's last wave of price hikes are now in effect. Chipotle’s last wave of price hikes has now been implemented. Last April, the fast-casual chain announced that they would be raising prices by 5% at 400 locations across the country. A second wave occurred in November. This final hike will affect the 45% of stores that did not see a price increase in 2017. This boost was the first price increase from Chipotle since 2014. Chipotle has had a rough time in recent years with multiple E. Coli outbreaks and the launch of their unpopular queso. In an effort to turn the company around, CEO Steve Ells said in November that he would be stepping down from his post as head of the company as soon as Chipotle found someone to replace him. He will remain with the company as executive chairman. A new CEO has yet to be selected. The price increases have added about 25 to 35 cents to the price of a typical entree according to Spokesman Chris Arnold. The price hike will go towards higher food and labor costs. "Even with the new prices, our pricing remains very competitive across the category, particularly if you factor in our ingredient quality," Arnold says.
