Wow Bao CEO and President Geoff Alexander said his company’s Dark Kitchen Initiative is a way to turn the lights on in existing kitchens and give them more business. The dark kitchen concept allows for Wow Bao menu items to be cooked and prepared in the unused areas of already built restaurants and commercial kitchens and delivered to customers everywhere with third-party platforms. “We believe in dark kitchens.” Geoff Alexander explained on the Restaurant Influencers podcast with Shawn Walchef of https://calibbq.media. “Where that comes from is every restaurant has capacity. And especially during COVID, you lost your dining room, you didn't need all of your kitchen space… And we believe we can help turn the lights on in that dark area.” Wow Bao serves “Hot Asian Buns,” soft fluffy dough that is filled with savory or sweet flavors and steamed to perfection. They also offer a number of other fast Asian street food offerings and specialty drinks. The requirements to operator a Wow Bao Dark Kitchen are: An active licensed commercial or restaurant kitchen Existing kitchen equipment or capacity to add equipment Broadliner delivery service or comparable vendor services Experience with third-party delivery platforms An owner, officer, or director must have at least 2 years of experience in the business “We believe that life’s too short for uninspired food. We’re here to transform the fast-casual experience from every day and expected to extraordinary and inventive,” Wow Bao states on its website. “We promise to put a “wow” in our guests’ day with an incomparable food experience that engages, excites, and exceeds expectations.” NOMINATE A RESTAURANT INFLUENCER — Do you know someone or a restaurant who is great on social media?

The Sweet Baby Ray’s famous barbecue sauce brand — which was sold to Ken’s Foods in 2005 for $30 million — has become such a conglomerate that their hundreds of millions in sales, obviously number one, total the next seven brands’ sales combined. With an influx of technology and ways to communicate using social media for marketing, Duce Raymond (son of Sweet Baby Ray’s barbecue sauce creator Chef Larry Raymond and nephew of Dave “Sweet Baby Ray” Raymond) was faced with opportunities to increase the reach of their Sweet Baby Ray’s Catering and Restaurant business. Initially he tried everything, to no avail. But with the guidance of Gary Vaynerchuk, better known as marketing guru Gary Vee, and his VaynerX company The Sasha Group, Duce set out to employ a new strategy using mainly short videos on TikTok. Then there was a turning point. Duce Raymond and crew planned their entry into the vast world of TikTok using a short-form video show, “BBQ Like a Boss”. Episode 1 of the show amassed an amazing 11,000 views as Duce gave viewers advice on the differences between Baby Back and St. Louis style ribs. The show’s popularity grew rapidly and was able to garner over one million views on Episode 12. NOMINATE A RESTAURANT INFLUENCER — Do you know someone or a restaurant who is great on social media?

How To Make $3,500 In Less Than 8-Weeks – Guaranteed [for web designers] [Video]

DoubleStack Guaranteehttps://doublestack.net/the-guarantee/Solution First Agency – Free Video Workshophttps://doublestack.net/solution-first-course/There’s a new and much more efficient and profitable way for web designers to get leads. This new approach is so effective, I literally guarantee you’ll make at least $3,500 in less than 8 weeks, or I’ll keep working with you for free until you do. If you’re not getting the number of leads you want or you feel like the quality of your leads is too low because everyone has such a small budget, don’t be so quick to think that you’re targeting the wrong people. Yes, sometimes it’s a targeting problem, but most of the time you are just not bringing the right offer to the table. Change your offer, and you’ll change everything about your business – the number of leads, the price point, and the profit margin.Who Is This For?There are a few prerequisites to qualify for this guarantee. Most of the web designers I work with use WordPress to build websites for their clients. I also have a very long history building sites with WordPress page builders as well as developing custom-coded themes and plugins for WordPress. You don’t have to code to join DoubleStack, you don’t even have to use WordPress, but you do need to be able to build a professional-looking website.While most of the people I work with are WordPress designers, some DoubleStackers use Webflow, Squarespace, Wix, and Duda. I personally prefer WordPress because of the incredible ecosystem. Anytime you need to integrate with any other service, there’s almost always a plugin or integration for WordPress, so you don’t have to hand-code the connection.You also need to be open to offering three layers of service to your clients.1) Design: Web design and Branding2) Technical: Hosting, Maintenance, and Technical Support3) Marketing: At least a basic digital marketing packageThe goal is to build a portfolio of high-ticket clients that work with you on an ongoing basis, so you get recurring revenue from every client. Lastly, you have to live in and work with clients located in the United States. I’m an expert in local lead generation, but I only have experience within the United States. Many of the tools/services/platforms we use might not be available in other countries. For example, Google Local Service Ads, direct mail options, payment gateways, and even the rules around email marketing differ based on what country you’re in. Since I don’t have experience in international digital marketing, if you’re living in a different country, I don’t feel like I’m the best person to help you. If this all sounds good to you, check out the details and grab a spot on my calendar so we can see if this is going to be a good fit for you. If so, let’s start winning some clients together!Learn More About The DoubleStack Guaranteehttps://doublestack.net/the-guarantee/

Running a B2B Business with D2C Principles with Gilmar Arellano [Video]

Gilmar Arellano, who co-founded HAY! Straws and serves as its CEO, pursued the plastic straw alternative due to his unconditional love for nature. “I wanted to protect the environment from the horrors of plastic waste,” he says, “and my experience in hospitality led me to identify one of the most egregious culprits: straws made from oil-based plastic.” Hand- selecting straw from small farms, cutting it, washing it, and packaging it in eco-friendly boxes revealed a natural solution to a dire modern problem. As he embraces the HAY! brand and its mission of reducing plastic pollution, Arellano also builds a strong, devoted team. Banking on their individual commitments to the cause, Arellano harnesses the powerful energy that comes with making a difference. “Rather than micro-manage, I choose to empower people,” he explains. While growing up in Lima, Peru, Arellano longed to start his own business after observing his father, who owned a clothing factory. Arellano’s first advent into the sustainable product space—alongside Savin—came in 2015 in the form of a toothbrush, one that stands up on its own and sources only eco-friendly, biodegradable materials. MABLE’s commitment to supporting children’s education through toothbrush profits also became a core tenet of Arellano’s business practices. Arellano brought on Emma Grose, who he met while traveling through Vietnam, as the head of social media, photography, and website design. A strong thread of eco-friendliness began to take root in Arellano’s career as he lived out his appreciation for the Earth and its fruits through his work with wine and in sustainable product design. He soon learned just how much he could contribute to the planet by combining and applying his skill sets strategically. A few years after MABLE’s launch, Arellano continued to innovate by taking on the hospitality industry with his and Savin’s alternative to plastic straws, the HAY! Straw. With the help of Grose and Savin, Arellano brought the straw-made-from-straw to market in 2018 and started a revolution in earth-friendly products. To date, the team has helped replace more than 50 million plastic straws with HAY! straws. Arellano recently moved to Austin and can be found cycling, playing soccer, reading and traveling the world. In This Conversation We Discuss: [00:00] Intro [01:03] Where Gil got the idea of alternative straws [02:48] How Gil got into sustainability [05:03] Timing is really important [05:58] The avenues that HAY! Straws targeted [07:32] Cold emails as a strategy [09:11] The difference in approaching cold emails [10:03] HAY!
