I visited a couple of restaurants in the last week and was not particularly happy with the service. These are places I have been to before. I had a particularly difficult time getting a server’s attention in both of these visits. Off and on in the past I had good service and/or good food but was not as impressed as I had been before. It made me less likely to eat there again.
Ask yourselves, how do companies produce customer loyalty if there is not a consistent…Continue

I just returned from my nephew's wedding. He is the first of our family's next generation to marry so the pressure was on to create a standard to follow. Being my brother's son, I was excited to go, visit with family that we don't see often enough and most importantly, to honor my nephew and his new bride. From the rehearsal dinner to the church, and ultimately to the reception, it was perfect.
Not just for all it had. It was perfect for the things that were…Continue
