Florida's 'Growler' Ban Unconstitutional, Lawsuit Claims Print
Wednesday, 29 October 2014 10:56

Sunshinestatenews.com - Florida is violating the United States Constitution by arbitrarily banning restaurants, taverns, and breweries from selling or filling the most popular portable jug for craft beers -- the half-gallon (64-ounce) growler.

That's according to a civil rights lawsuit filed today in federal court on behalf of the owners of a downtown Stuart craft beer restaurant, The Crafted Keg. The lawsuit was filed by the national free-enterprise legal organization, Pacific Legal Foundation (PLF)."It should be an interesting suit as we are fairly certain that this is the first courtroom challenge to the growler ban," said Kate Pomeroy, PLF's Washington, D.C., media director.

PLF always gets its man, so to speak," retired Orange County attorney Sanford R. Craig told Sunshine State News. Craig was part of a legal team that unsuccessfully opposed PLF a few years ago. "The state is in for a fight on this one." Continue

Music Industry Sues Restaurant over Music! Print
Wednesday, 29 October 2014 10:52

 Gothamist.com -Unless it's blasting out your ear drums, music at restaurants usually fades into the background noise of clattering plates and sauced patrons' boisterous laughs. Even so, a group representing license holders for the music industry wants restaurants to pony up cash to play music at their establishments and they're suing to make it happen. Nine restaurants on Long Island are facing lawsuits from ASCAP, which represents 500,000 musicians and publishers, reports Newsday. You can't play Jackson Browne's "Somebody's Baby" without throwing money to the song's writers.

According to the lawsuits, the restaurants were observed playing copyrighted material without obtaining the proper licenses to do so. Federal law states that any commercial establishment wanting to play copyrighted music in any form must first obtain the correct license that would pay out royalties to whomever deserves them. In the case of Digger's, The Homestead, BobbiQue and six other Long Island eateries, this didn't happen, despite numerous reminders from organizations representing the musicians. Eightyearsworth of reminders. Continue

Restaurant Launches fight against Yelp reviews. Print
Sunday, 21 September 2014 13:49

KTVU.com - The owners of Richmond’s Botto Bistro have had it with reviews on the Yelp website so they are asking customers to give them just one star.

Chefs and co-owners Davide Cerretini and Michele Massimo have even posted a sign on the door of the restaurant offering discounts for bad reviews.

“Hate us on Yelp,” the sign reads. “Write ONESTAR review for Botto on Yelp and get an immediate 25 percent off any pizza & get free tickets to our cooking classes.”

Cerretini told the San Francisco Chronicle he has grown tired of the constant calls from Yelp trying to sell him advertising.

“I don’t have anything against Yelp,” he told the paper. “The idea is fantastic, but the blackmailing thing is ferocious. I think I should be the one deciding if I’m on the site or not. At least I can be there on my terms.” Read more http://www.ktvu.com/news/news/local/richmond-restaurant-launches-fight-against-yelp-re/nhP7G/

Restaurant agrees to $1.3 mil Racial Discrimination suit! Print
Wednesday, 17 September 2014 09:24

Baltimoresun.com - The owners of two popular restaurants in downtown Baltimore have agreed to pay $1.3 million and establish new hiring measures to settle a years-old lawsuit alleging racial discrimination against black applicants and employees.

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed the lawsuit in 2008 against McCormick & Schmick's Seafood Restaurants Inc. and Schmick Restaurant Corp., owners of McCormick & Schmick's and M&S Grill in the Inner Harbor.

The lawsuit claimed the restaurants violated the Civil Rights Act of 1964 by refusing to hire black applicants for front-of-the-house positions such as servers and hostesses.

The Companies did not admit to any discrimination or wrongdoing as part of the settlement, which was approved last week by U.S. District Judge William M. Nickerson.

Eric Janson, an attorney for the companies, declined to comment Monday.

The EEOC celebrated the settlement. Read More  http://articles.baltimoresun.com/2014-09-15/business/bs-bz-mccormick-settlement-20140915_1_mccormick-schmick-ms-grill-applicants

Businesses relying on international lenders, private equity! Print
Thursday, 11 September 2014 09:40

Dailybusinessreview.com -VooDoo BBQ & Grill is the house that foreign capital built.

The owners of the chain's Florida franchises say they've raised $40 million from investors in 12 countries through the EB-5 visa program, sprouting new locations in Miami, Pembroke Pines, Hollywood, Fort Lauderdale, Boca Raton and Pensacola.

Faced with a credit desert and stringent lending criteria as nearly 70 banks failed in Florida in the aftermath of the Great Recession, the New Orleans-style barbecue franchise had to look elsewhere.

The company found international lenders and cash-rich private equity firms to be the big-money lenders and backers of South Florida's most lucrative commercial deals.

"We're not where we were in '04 or '05 when anybody could get a loan, but the appetite from financial institutions is increasing," said Israel Alfonso, a Miami partner in Akerman, whose annual real estate survey measures economic conditions and investor confidence.

For VooDoo, the new wave of investment followed a tedious and futile fundraising drive in the U.S.

Jafrejo Holdings LLC, the chain's Florida franchisee, said its startup businesses faced multiple roadblocks from traditional lenders.

Thursday, 11 September 2014 09:35

Restaurant.org -A majority of Americans have a favorable view of the restaurant business, according to a new Gallup poll. In fact, restaurants topped the list of business sectors and industries in this annual survey.

Gallup’s latestWork and Education poll, conducted Aug. 7-10, observed Americans’ perceptions of the restaurant industry and 23 other business sectors, plus the federal government. With a net positive response of 60, the restaurant industry outperformed the computer industry by four percentage points. The computer industry has topped the list since the restaurant industry last held that spot in 2007. Overall, this was restaurants’ most favorable year since the poll was first conducted in 2001.

“Restaurants are the cornerstones of communities across the country,” said Dawn Sweeney, president and CEO of the National Restaurant Association. “From the local sandwich shop to the city steakhouse, the restaurant industry provides job opportunity to 13.5 million Americans and has become an essential part of our everyday lives.” Continue
