RD ImagineCreate a Dynamic Brand, from bottom up to inside out. “I get it”. Guests rarely say this out loud but they think it. The restaurant either feels right or it doesn’t. Whether your concept is pizza takeout or 5-star dining, the dots have to connect. Guests and team members must have a sense of comfort and confidence – emotions that support the concept vision.

Creating a dynamic brand begins with the concept idea that must be fully developed. If you do not paint a detailed picture, how would you expect anyone involved, from your banker to your bartender, to “get it” and then translate it into brick and mortar? Therefore, we progressively elaborate your concept idea into a detailed Brand Map.

Restaurant Dynamics creates Brand Maps that present a concept vision of Environment, Food and Beverage, and Service, which connects the dots to form a comprehensive Business Plan.

RD InspireGame On! Are your “12’s” working for you? The 12th man concept goes back may generations to the start of the 20th century[1]. In 1984 the Seattle Seahawks took it to new heights when they retired the 12th man Jersey. Some would say they designed Century Link Field to maximize the effect of the 12th man.

Just like football, restaurant teams are inspired from the inside out and from the bottom up. In turn, team members inspire guests to return and return often:

  • Truth#1: Every minute that team members are focused on problems or themselves instead of solutions or the team, is a minute robbed from guest engagement.
  • Truth # 2: Team members connect on social networks, and every connection they have is a potential raving fan[2] – what are they saying about the working environment?
  • Truth # 3: Guests increasingly use social media to vote your concept up or down, or ignore you all together – what, if anything are they saying about your establishment?
  • Truth # 4: Many restaurants and hotels are mired in the day-to-day tactical battle for business results. They forget that inspiring team members (and guests) needs a clear strategy with the same constant attention, in order to drive ongoing success.

Restaurant Dynamics works from the inside out and from the bottom up to increase your team’s enthusiasm and commitment to your restaurant, with a strong believe that “self managed teams” provide a stronger and more consistent return to ownership.

Restaurant Dynamics works to insure that your marketing plans, social media efforts, and public relations is based on strategy first.
