Wednesday, 16 July 2014 11:33

Fastcasual.com - Pie Five Pizza has awarded 18 franchise units to retired Cleveland Indian Matt LaPorta to bring the brand throughout the Tampa, Fla., area beginning in early 2015. LaPorta, who is also a former University of Florida baseball player, will be joined by fellow MLB retiree Josh Fields and restaurant operators Brandon Birdwell and Jeff Engle to expand the chain from Pasco County to Sarasota, Fla.

“For the longest time I’ve wanted to open up a cool pizza place like this. I guess you could call pizza my new passion,” LaPorta said in a news release. “So when Josh told me about Pie Five, and my family and I tried it out for ourselves, I knew this was it. The operational model is excellent, the company’s leadership is top notch and the food is fantastic.  I’m convinced Pie Five is going to be a huge hit in this area.”

Fields is also currently spreading the Pie Five brand throughout Oklahoma City with former NFL star Billy Bajema.

Restaurants sales fare poorly in June! Print
Wednesday, 16 July 2014 11:27

NRN.com - The second quarter ended on a slow note, with lackluster same-store sales in June due in part to ailing dinner and weekend traffic. However, improvements in consumer spending trends bode well for the second half of the year, according to the latest NRN-MillerPulse report released Tuesday.

Restaurant same-store sales rose 0.8 percent in June, lower than the 1.9-percent increase recorded in May. Still, the second quarter ended on a better note than the first, with same-store sales rising 1.4 percent, compared with the 1-percent increase in the prior quarter.

As has been the case for some time, poor traffic was to blame, said Larry Miller, founder and chief executive of the monthly MillerPulse report. Continue

Does Tilted Kilt "OWN" the right to all Kilts, Court may decide! Print
Tuesday, 15 July 2014 19:47


Thesubbews.com - A courtroom clash is brewing over who has the right to market kilt-clad cuties to golf-loving, beer thirsty Myrtle Beach area consumers.

The Tilted Kilt — a so-called “breastaurant” chain known for waitresses who sport thigh-length kilts, bare midriffs and plaid bras — this week filed a trademark infringement lawsuit against the Myrtle Beach-based Kilted Caddy Club, which supplies similarly dressed female caddies for golf outings.

The Tempe, Ariz.-based Tilted Kilt, which has nearly 100 locations nationwide including one at Broadway at the Beach, says in court documents that the caddy club is copying its distinctive and trademarked “uniforms,” thereby, confusing consumers into thinking the two businesses are related.

The Tilted Kilt has asked a judge for a permanent injunction against the Kilted Caddy Club’s use of its name and tantalizing tartan uniforms, as well as unspecified monetary damages. Continue

Restaurant.com again dodges class action lawsuit! Print
Tuesday, 15 July 2014 09:54

Marinacityonline.com -A federal judge on Thursday granted a motion to dismiss the class action lawsuit against an Arlington Heights, Illinois, company owned by two River North residents.

The case against Restaurant.com had been argued before the New Jersey Supreme Court and a U.S. Court of Appeals.

In 2010, two New Jersey residents sued RDC on behalf of themselves and others over gift certificates they purchased that had expiration dates and a disclaimer in violation of New Jersey law. RDC faced as much as $1 million in fines.

The suit was dismissed, then appealed, and made it to the New Jersey Supreme Court, which ruled the gift certificates were tangible property and therefore subject to the law RDC was accused of violating. But it was up to District Judge Joel A. Pisano to decide if that meant the ruling could be applied retroactively or to future cases only. Continue

Inspectors close buffet for second time! Print
Monday, 07 July 2014 11:00

WTSP.com - Inverness, Florida—With awards lining the windows, Evergreen Buffet was at one time a runner-up for "Best of the Best" of Citrus County restaurants.

"I got the honey chicken and the lo mein and all that, it was pretty good," said longtime customer Nick James.

But James must have missed our report in 2013 warning customers of potential problems in the kitchen. The restaurant was shut down in January of last year, according to state records, with an employee not washing their hands, close to 100 droppings and evidence of rodents chewing on bags of food. Back then, employees blamed all the issues on the owner being out of town.

"We correct everything. It won't happen again, we promise," said manager Elaine Tacn. Continue

Thestir.cafemom.com - Think the hardest part of dining out with toddlers is getting them to sit in their seat and wait for their eats? Try this one on for size! A family in Georgia is claiming they were kicked out of a restaurant because of their 4-year-old's shirt.

  1. Lewis Roberts was dressed like most kids his age in a lime green Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles tee. But that wasn't the problem for The Tavern at Phipps Plaza, an Atlanta eatery. It was the fact that Lewis' shirt had no sleeves -- and the restaurant has a clear "gentlemen's dress code" that forbids sleeveless shirts. Continue
