It is an old Jewish saying that means something like wishing someone a lot of worries and a lot of misery but many hospitality companies are currently having a lot of worries due to the lack of employees.

To elevate the unique talents of these storytellers across the country, SweeTARTS is reimagining the typically exclusive award show concept by hosting the first branded Film Fest on TikTok.

Done right it will push your amount of followers on TikTok and who knows it might interest young people that didn’t visit your place before. In the past we spotted similar ideas for Instagram.
