ABOUT: Restaurant Marketing Magazine Text Box:

What are the most successful restaurant brands doing to make money?  They have all built customer demand and loyalty.  Restaurant Marketing IS the restaurant business today.  Introducing new products and selling to consumers is what marketing people do.  Restaurant Marketing Magazine is a timely resource for restaurant executives from all types of restaurants (fine dining to food service at retail) with stories about their own challenges, successes and behind-the-scenes look at how restaurant brands are made. 

This quarterly publication is intended to educate, entertain and provide ideas and case studies from restaurant brands and those companies and products involved in the restaurant and food industry.  Some strategic articles and some fun how-to articles will provide both senior level and management level readers with valuable content.  Restaurant Marketing Magazine promises to take a look behind the curtain at what top restaurant marketers are doing to generate sales today, the challenges and successes they are faced with, and lessons learned. The Faces & Places section of each issue will offer photos and social news exclusively for and about restaurant marketing professionals.

The publishers of Restaurant Marketing intend to donate a percentage of proceeds from each issue of the magazine to a Restaurant Marketing Scholarship fund set up to provide educational opportunities for the next generation of marketing and public relations professionals in the restaurant industry.  The scholarships will be given out annually and will be announced at an annual event.
