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. 1.

A new lens on growth and a critical set of strategies for navigating a complex world Growth is rarely in a straight line. It is tempting to think otherwise, particularly when looking in the rear view mirror, but anyone faced with plotting the coordinates for a company´s growth knows the fallacy of this notion. As much as we like to think of corporate leaders executing sure-fire growth strategies, the truth is far messier: it´s more an act of exploration and discovery than a step-by-step process. In Growth in the Age of Complexity, the authors describe in detail how complexity has impacted businesses and the markets in which they compete, and the strategies, mindsets, and skillsets required to grow profitably! New strategies are required to navigate the ´´Sirens of Growth´´: the growth plans borne of Industrial Age mindsets that too frequently lead to complexity vs. scale. In addition, companies need to develop an Explorer´s Mindset and a Navigator´s Skillset to sustain performance. You´ll discover how to: Assess where you´re truly making money Reignite your core products and services to drive growth Incorporate experimentation as a key way to discover new opportunities Create an operating model for scale, location, and replication Identify new markets where you are positioned to win Understand the fundamentals for executing in a distributed organization This book is an invaluable tool for achieving growth and maintaining a competitive advantage in virtually any business. 1.
