What do you eat for breakfast? Perhaps an omelet or maybe a frittata? What about an egg sandwich from your favorite coffee shop?

bird fluWell, if you have not noticed, egg prices have nearly tripled due to the avian flu outbreak. Per the latest report from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, over 46 million birds are affected. This has not only spawned the rationing of eggs, it has also spiked wholesale prices. According to USA Today, "wholesale prices, the price a warehouse pays, for a dozen extra-large eggs are up 3 to 22.5 cents across the USA last week." In the Northeast prices rose from $2.41 to $2.63; the prices are likely to continue rising.

Right now, the hardest hit are restaurants and commercial operations that use hard-shell eggs and egg products, such as bakers and pasta makers. But, the everyday consumer is starting to feel the wallet strain, due to purchasing eggs and egg products for their home, and consuming food items containing eggs when they dine out.

What's to come of this egg shortage? What do you plan to do differently to ensure eggs are a part of your breakfast?

card-swipeIt's Friday evening and it's packed. There are guests waiting to be seated, tables that need to be cleared, and checks that need to be paid. A guest signals you, she's ready to pay; you grab her bill and credit card. What happens next? You go to "ring" her up, but the card isn't reading. What do you do? Here's a quick hint, it involves thermal paper.

Watch this video below for the full hack.

Dishes and entrees that include prepping small fruits and veggies (spherical ones such as cherry tomatoes, grapes, blueberries...) can be a pain. Talk about time-consuming! Why hasn't someone designed a gadget that can cut prep time, as well as cut the produce in one fell swoop? Until that gadget is available, here's a great hack that just might save the day.

SmoreIt's time enjoy the great outdoors; tis' the summer season! Grab an ice cream cone to cool you down, throw a few "dogs" and burgers on the grill to fill your belly, and satisfy your sweet-tooth with a couple of s'mores. Yes, s'mores, but not just any s'mores. This is a hack for "indoor s'mores" (no campfire needed).

For decades, the restaurant industry has suffered from high turnover rates, due to low wages and the lack of employee benefits.

While health and dental insurance, along with retirement plans have been far-fetched ideas, the owner of one San Francisco bistro is bringing change to the forefront. Jennifer Piallat, owner of Zazie and one time waitress, understands the plight of the restaurant worker and has taken controversial steps to keep her staff on board and happy. Piallat has added a surcharge of $1.25/person on all checks, which is stated on every menu, in order to provide her staff with full benefits.
Regardless of their title, each staff member receives full health and dental insurance, paid sick leave, and is offered various 401(k) plans.

Have you taken any steps to incentivize your staff to build their careers at your establishment? What are your thoughts about adding a surcharge to help provide employee benefits? How do you think your patrons would react?

kfc coffee

In celebration of its 50th anniversary, KFC partnered with experimental food experts The Robin Collective, to sweeten the deal and woo their coffee-drinking customers with something other than Kentucky Fried Chicken.

Lucky customers in select UK KFC restaurants will be able to indulge in a cup of Joe, but not just any cup of Joe. The cup is actually a cookie wrapped in edible sugar paper, lined with white chocolate that slowly melts over time; it secretly sweetens your coffee and prepares your cookie to be devoured.

 

 

So what do you say? Do you think the U.S. is ready for edible coffee cups? Would you try one? Why/why not?
