Meatless Mondays, the garbage challenge and what Americans think of chain restaurants

Every week, Restaurant SmartBrief editors scour the Internet for the breaking news and best-practices stories that restaurant owners and managers need to make their businesses smarter. However, every week, hundreds of fascinating food, beverage and restaurant stories don’t make the cut. Here are a few of my favorite stories from the past week that didn’t make the newsletter:

  • 3 menu design tips from the MustHaveMenus blog.
  • Have you tried the garbage challenge at your restaurant? Check it out on the Restaurant Marketing blog. Guaranteed to help you stop losing silverware in the trash.
  • Video: NCCR and ExpoTV examine Americans’ perceptions of the chain restaurant industry.
  • Why Chipotle shouldn’t be blamed for its recent firings, according to this Minnesota Daily editorial.
  • Sodexo is rolling out Meatless Mondays, reports The Huffington Post.
