Austin's Best Places to Work for 2017 have been unveiled — 75 companies that perk workers up with benefits such as free Segways at their downtown office, trips abroad and all the catered food you can stomach. Pay close attention to what makes these businesses so great — there is business intelligence to be had. From rooftop yoga sessions to in-house chefs to desks that are made for sitting or standing, these companies offer innovative perks to keep employees happy and productive.
Freshly made barbecue sandwiches, beef jerky by the pound, fresh fudge and clean restrooms. Like, ridiculously clean restrooms in a ridiculously big space — soon to be the biggest in Florida. No, it’s not heaven. It’s Buc-ee’s, the gas station with a cult-like following in Texas, and it’s bringing its first location outside of the Lone Star State to Florida next year. The 50,000-square-foot Daytona Beach Travel Center will feature 120 fuel pumps, said a spokeswoman for Buc-ee’s.
Marc Katz — the deli entrepreneur known for driving around in a big, yellow Cadillac and shouting in commercials that "Katz's never kloses" — was one of the most popular business personalities on the Austin scene for decades until his Sixth Street eatery closed for good via bankruptcy about six years ago. But his son is still at it in Houston. In fact, he's making progress with the brand.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
