Horecatrends | Tips for Culinary videos worth watching – week 8

19-2-2019

YouTube has been a source of inspiration for spotting trends past few years. Every day, thousands of movies are uploaded with new and interesting content. We too sometimes use videos as a source of inspiration to write about. With this week again a selection of videos which Vera Rauwerda thinks are cool to watch.  This week, among other things, a great video by Bloomberg about the history of Red Bull and their marketing. A video of ‘The Best Ever Food Review Show’ about the most impressive meat market in Asia where they sell meat from amongst other cats, dogs and rat. And a video about luxury plane meals, which we never had as travelers in the tourist class. lees verder

Another hotel that plays with the social media addiction of many guests today! On 14 February guests of the ‘Check Out Suite’ have the chance to experience a unique hotel stay at Hotel Bellora in Gothenburg, Sweden. There’s only one condition – you need to put down your screens. They introduce the world’s first hotel room where the price is set according to how much you browse the web. Less browsing and more hanging out equals a better price. So, check-in, and then check-out! They want to encourage people that are staying in the hotel to spend more time together and less time looking at the phone screen. The Check Out Suite is an exciting concept that challenges our online behavior and incites us to spend more time together. Unfortunately the registration date has expired! Great way to increase your brand awareness!   lees verder

Domino’s Pizza is ‘Paving for Pizza’ in the USA | Don’t let bad potholes ruin good pizza!

  • PavingforpizzaPaving For Pizza

We missed this initiative by Domino’s Pizza  from June last year up to this morning but for once we don’t really mind. This way we can check whether this is just a media stunt or that they’re actually ‘paving for pizza’. As their press release back in June said; “Domino’s is saving pizza, one pothole at a time”. Cracks, bumps, potholes and other road conditions can put good pizzas at risk after they leave the store. Domino’s was hoping to help smooth the ride home for their freshly-made pizzas. Started June last year, Domino’s asked customers to nominate their town for pothole repairs at Paving For Pizza. And as we recently visited the states Florida and New York in the USA we noticed the terrible conditions of the road, so a great campaign by Domino’s Pizza.    lees verder

Baked in front of your eyes by a robot, the BreadBot makes bread that is fresh, healthy, preservative free and eco-friendly. The BreadBot from the Wilkinson Baking Company mixes, forms, proofs, bakes and cools bread all on its own. The Wilkinson Baking Company debuted the BreadBot last January at the CES (Consumer Electronics Show) in Las Vegas. This robot baker, a machine that goes from flour to loaf all on its own, harnesses the marvels of modern technology to take us back to the old world with its artisan bread that is tasty and nutritious. We start seeing more and more robot-like machineries in the hospitality industry and retail, like for example ‘The Creator’, a start-to-finish fully automated preparation process to create gourmet burgers. The BreadBot is a new example of this development. Imagine a BreatBot baking fresh buns in your hotel lobby!    lees verder
