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

The unmanned food markets of the company can be placed in the lobby of a hotel and the guests can decide themselves what they will take up to their room, which makes the minibar unnecessary. Jutter Speijs is already active in several hotels in the Netherlands and hopes to expand locally and abroad this year. 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
