Online food ordering company Olo on Friday said it will be integrating Amazon Restaurants’ delivery service into its ordering platform in a bid to simplify the delivery-order process for restaurants. With the integration, Olo’s restaurant clients will be more easily added into the Amazon Restaurant system — enabling orders through the delivery provider to go right through the point-of-sale system without the addition of a tablet.
This post is part of the On the Margin blog. We’re not the only ones who say burger chains stand to lose in a McDonald’s Corp. resurgence. Jim Chanos, founder of the short-selling investment firm Kynikos Associates, told CNBC this week that McDonald’s success could be bad news for its rivals. “McDonald’s righted the ship and has now reinvested aggressively in its restaurants, in its franchisees, and upping the game for everybody else,” he said.
You can now get driving directions from Colonel Sanders, provided you’re traveling from Louisville to Georgia and happen to own a piece of electronics people stopped using regularly in about 1995
It’s the latest, off-the-wall marketing campaign from KFC, called GPS Cassette. The Louisville, Ky.-based chain has hired a pair of social media influencers to drive across the south, with the company’s famous founder giving them directions over a bright red cassette tape.
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".
