Max Group Adopts Hospitality Socials Products(May 21, 2011)
Hartford, CT, and Naples, FL (PRWEB) May 21, 2011
As the NRA Show 2011 opened today in Chicago, Hospitality Social announced that the successful Max Restaurant Group in Hartford, Connecticut, has signed on as a customer. For the first time, guests in Connecticut will get a glimpse of the future and how Apple Computer, Inc. iPads or Andriod tablets will revolutionize the experiences that hospitality venues can offer their guests. By carefully weaving the dining experience together with expert wine pairings, menu selections, hospitality rewards and social media buzz Max Downtown will offer a first in the state.
Hospitality Social is the first company that we have seen to connect all the dots, said Richard Rosenthal, President of the Max Restaurant Group. Word of mouth has traditionally been the most important focus for restauranteurs and hospitality executives. Social media now makes that viral. The form factor of a pad versus a terminal just makes too much sense. Combining this with expert advice to improve the dining experience will give a significant advantage to any venue that has it.
Convergence: A Shifting Industry
Every day, billions of dollars are spent in the hospitality industry based on social networking. However, the landscape is changing, and the focus is moving from terminals to pads. By 2020, the number of interactive menus will outnumber paper, and that race has already begun. Interactive menus, combined with social media, unlock the door to new and increased revenue. Hospitality Social has connected this convergence into a winning strategy to ensure hospitality executives dominate in this new environment.
We are excited to work with Max Downtown, said Jack Serfass CEO of Hospitality Social and co-owner of Naples Tomato restaurant. Richard has a great vision of where he wants to take his restaurant group and we are very excited to be part of it. The benefits will be immediate for both the restaurant and guests.
We chose the 10 iPad package for $699 a month, said Rosenthal. We are excited to offer this amenity of Hospitality Pads and the Personal Sommelier to our guests at Max Downtown. No other restaurant in the area has anything like it. This will be the first time guests in Connecticut get this experience and we are excited that Max Group introduced it. We already have a demo unit and plan to go live before Memorial Day Weekend. Its exciting. There is a good chance we will bring it to more of our restaurants.
