Chipotle to raise prices to offset rising food costs! Print
Friday, 18 April 2014 13:21

NRN.com - Chipotle Mexican Grill is planning a menu price increase in the mid-single-digit range for this year to help address rising food costs for key ingredients like beef, cheese and avocados.

To be rolled out by early in the third quarter, the price hike would be Chipotle’s first in nearly three years to impact the domestic system.

In a call Thursday with Wall Street analysts following the release of first-quarter results, Jack Hartung, Chipotle’s chief financial officer, said the Denver-based chain has plenty of pricing power, but the goal is to ensure the menu remains accessible to guests in what continues to be an uneven economic recovery.

WTSP.com -  We've visited Gateway Pizza and Pasta Company over and over again. It's a restaurant with pages of violations on inspection after inspection.

On previous visits by 10 News, a man who identified himself as Gary told us the restaurant's problems were no big deal.

"We had one little incident and everything was taken care of immediately and everything is fine right now," said Gary back in 2013.

But when we asked for permission to inspect back where the food is made, Gary was not so eager to accommodate. Continue

Wednesday, 09 April 2014 15:32

Associated Press - Paula Deen and her younger brother, Bubba, have shut off the fish fryer and locked the doors at the Savannah, Ga., seafood restaurant that served as the backdrop to a workplace discrimination lawsuit that stained the celebrity cook’s reputation.

Deen and Bubba Hiers co-owned Uncle Bubba’s Seafood and Oyster House for a decade before the abrupt closure last week.

A spokesman for the Deen family, Jaret Kellers, issued a statement saying Hiers closed the restaurant “to explore development options for the waterfront property on which the restaurant is located.” Kellers said no specific plans have been made.

Orange-and-white barricades blocked the entrance to Uncle Buba’s on Friday, and there were no signs of life outside. The Savannah Morning News reported employees collected severance checks in the parking lot Thursday. Continue

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Hey Putin, don't even think about ordering a Super Mighty in Buffalo.

Mighty Taco, a Buffalo-based chain of Mexican fast-foot restaurants, has banned Russian President Vladimir Putin from all of the company's 23 locations in western New York.

The company known for its quirky ads announced on social media this week that effective immediately, Putin is banned from Mighty Taco for seizing Crimea from Ukraine. Mighty Taco's posting says Putin may be ordering around Crimea, but he won't be ordering a Super Mighty, one of the chain's most popular menu items.

The posting, which features a red-tinted photo of a gesticulating Putin, says he'll be "welcomed back" at Mighty Taco when he stops acting like a bully and "picking on people." Continue

Restaurants invaded- sued by music police. Print
Sunday, 06 April 2014 12:41

CTlawreview.com - Pop superstars such as Rihanna, Taylor Swift and Lady Gaga don't make many live appearances in Connecticut. But their music is frequently played in bars, restaurants and other businesses.

Legally, the playing of that music—on the radio, or via a compact disc or MP3 players—in a commercial establishment is considered a "public performance." Technically, the bar or restaurant must pay a licensing organization.

Many don't. And that can lead to copyright infringement claims that sometimes evolve into full-fledged lawsuits.

Greater Hartford's Plan B Burger Bar chain, Cheshire's Waverly Inn and Willimantic's Lucky Frog are current targets of music copyright infringement suits, federal court records show. Continue

Rodriguez received 11 years in prison for the manslaughter charge. He received an additional 15-year sentence for violating probation that stemmed from a prior gun charge in Manatee County.

At the time of his arrest, police say Rodriguez was a known, documented gang member with a violent history that included several weapons charges.

Small brewery Cheer changes to beer measure! Print
Tuesday, 25 March 2014 12:58

Tampabay.com -  Small breweries may not be as mighty as Anheuser-Busch distributors, but they showed a little muscle on Monday by helping to reshape a House bill that could have put some out of business.

"Some folks recognized that there were problems that needed to be addressed," said Josh Aubuchon, a Holland & Knight lobbyist who represents the Florida Brewers Guild, a consortium that includes 90 local breweries in Florida, including 28 in the Tampa Bay region.

HB 1329, sponsored by Rep. Ray Rodrigues, R-Fort Myers, would have legalized half-gallon containers, known as growlers, to sell craft beer. That size is legal in 47 other states, but not Florida.

But while Rodrigues' bill would make half-gallon growlers legal, it also came with many restrictions small breweries didn't like, so that only those with certain licenses were eligible. Aubuchon said additional restrictions would have made it difficult for many of the 90 breweries he is representing to operate. Continue

NFL Player called restaurant wokers "poor white trash" Print
Thursday, 20 March 2014 15:08

Fansided - Chicago Bears defensive lineman Henry Melton was arrested in December for an incident in at a Dallas area bar. Aside from throwing punches, he also allegedly but the owner of the bar.

The bar was trying too remove Melton for unruliness and details of the incident have leaked out, including allegations of the verbal jabs Melton threw at the restaurant employees.

According to the lawsuit, at the bar the night of the incident, Melton was telling restaurant workers that he “was a millionaire and the bartenders were nothing but poor white trash.”

Not so surprisingly, Melton’s agent Jordan Woy has released a statement in response claiming the opposite.

“We have recently reviewed the lawsuit and do not believe the validity of the allegations made. We look forward to providing the true facts in court and will defend this matter vigorously. We will seek to hold The Chill and others accountable for any and all damages Henry has suffered at the hands of multiple men who attacked him.”
