Technology has come a long way in the restaurant industry in the last decade. And today, following the rise of mobile platforms, operators are finding that restaurant automation—particularly with self-service ordering kiosks—is opening the door to potential labor savings. Just look at Wow Bao. The Chicago-based dumpling fast casual just launched its first automated eatery, which features self-ordering kiosks and individual cubbies where guests pick up their food.
There is a Subway in east Orlando, an endcap in a brand-new development just off state route 408. Of course, saying there’s a Subway in east Orlando is like saying there’s a millennial hipster in Brooklyn or an aspiring actor in L.A. There were nearly 27,000 Subways in the U.S. at the close of 2016, almost double the locations of the next largest chain (McDonald’s) and nearly one for every 12,000 people in the states.
What are your tips for improving speed of service at Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s? First, reduce “reaction time.” By starting to make each product the moment the order is placed with the cashier, we can begin the overall process more quickly. The faster the food is ready, the faster it can be delivered to the guest. Second, establish strategic scheduling practices. We put a huge emphasis on having the right employees scheduled at the right time to meet business needs.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
