In Vino Veritas - Using Data Analytics To Increase Sales on High-Margin Menu Items

Posted by David Pettit on Sep 11, 2017 3:00:23 PM

“In wine there is truth,” a timeless phrase that suggests an adult beverage can bring out the genuine “truth” in a person or situation. Little did I know that when I took a few friends up on a casual dinner, we’d run right into the true irony of this phrase.

A Bottle For The Table

Our dinner plans landed us in a large national chain restaurant that specializes in Italian food – a place that I’ve grown very fond of due to their great table service. After being seated, I quickly scanned the wine list to order a bottle for the table. I decided on a $36.00 bottle of chardonnay, which for three people felt like a very reasonable price.

When the server returned to our table, the fun started. “Do you mind opening this bottle, I am afraid of hurting my hand?” This was our server asking me (or someone at the table) to open the bottle of wine – not asking another server, not asking the onsite manager, asking us! It was almost comical that he followed up this request by placing the corkscrew on the table almost to say, “Have at it, folks. Roll up those sleeves and get uncorkin’!”

The Moneyball Approach to Restaurant Operations

Posted by Dennis Burge on Jun 12, 2017 8:30:00 AM


How Restaurants Are Using Data Science to Climb Up the Standings

Whether or not you are a fan of baseball, you have likely heard the term “Moneyball” referenced at one time or another. 


The term originates from a 2003 book of the same name (turned hit movie with Brad Pitt) about Billy Beane, General Manager of the 

Oakland Athletics, who would go on to become a sports analytics pioneer. Beane challenged the conventional wisdom of Major League Baseball by building a winning baseball team through a groundbreaking, data-driven approach.

Prior to Beane’s revelation, GMs attempting to solidify their roster resorted to a manual, “go out and see them play” methodology. This antiquated, albeit pervasive method relied almost exclusively on the keen eye of upper-level scouts (think Clint Eastwood in Trouble with the Curve) and the all-important “stat-line” (Batting Average, Home Runs, Stolen Bases, RBI, etc.). However, Billy Beane’s new approach, dubbed sabermetrics*,” relied less on the old school, manual scouting element and more on data science (specifically advanced quantitative statistical analysis) to determine a players’ worth as well as their fit to his existing ball club.
