Publisher's Summary

Erle Dardick believes the multi-unit restaurant industry is leaving billions of dollars on the table. So he outlined a clear solution for food businesses struggling to stay afloat or to grow during the recession in his new book, Get Catering and Grow Sales! A Strategic Perspective for the Multi-Unit Restaurant Executive.

"I believe the fastest-growing source of revenue for restaurants will be catering," asserts Dardick, a serial entrepreneur, "and I have no doubt it will be their most important revenue source during the next decade."

Dardick, the CEO of MonkeyMedia Software, a food industry consulting and software company, has helped his firm's clients grow their revenue by embracing a catering strategy. Catering, which can be supplied to corporations, organizations or private individuals, can include off-premise drop-off catering with or without set-up services, or off-premise catering for pick-up. One's catering strategy may even include altering menu selection, portion sizes, and the creation of a proprietary beverage. Many pitfalls and opportunities await those brands ready to incorporate a catering strategy.

"This is a book about driving new and incremental sales for our community's brands," writes Dardick. "It's about getting out a roadmap for the future of how our industry can come together as a group and use Get Catering and Grow Sales! as a compass for innovating as a community. It's about leveraging our assets to maximize catering as a substantial revenue channel in the multi-unit restaurant environment."

All net proceeds of the audiobook's sale are being donated to Share Our Strength, a charity dedicated to ending childhood hunger in America.

Don't bother

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

This is one of the few books i never bothered to finish. After several hours i couldn't stand anymore.
It reads more like an advertisement for the authors software...never giving you any useful info but refers you to use the software.

Great, informative

The first 20 chapters or so I didn’t benefit much as the author just kept repeating the importance of catering and I was close to quitting on the book. Glad I didn’t. After those chapters it’s gold and the ideas in the book are life changing.

No real substance.

Seems mostly like an ad to sell more of the authors software. Worth a listen but don't expect too much.
