The Founder: What 1954 Can Teach us about Growing a Global Restaurant Chain

Oracle Hospitality Check-In - 12 October 2017
If you're in the hospitality industry and you haven't yet watched The Founder, a film about the history of McDonald's starring Michael Keaton as Ray Kroc, then I highly recommend it to you. It's a thoroughly entertaining retelling of the McDonalds story; Kroc/Keaton is the epitome of the persistent salesman, driving round America in 1954 trying to persuade restaurant owners to buy his multi-spindle milkshake maker. When an order comes in for 6 milkshake machines, Kroc thinks it's a mistake - what kind of restaurant would need to make 30 milkshakes at a time? The answer of course is a new kind of restaurant run by the McDonald brothers in San Bernardino. Kroc goes to see it for himself, falls in love with the Speedee System that the brothers have invented, and the rest is history. Kroc takes the ideas behind the operation, builds up a hugely successful franchise business, and then falls out with the more cautious brothers before taking the company global without them.

Oracle Hospitality Check-In - 26 September 2017
Technologies such as artificial intelligence, facial recognition and virtual reality have moved well past the world of science fiction and movies to power guest experiences and new service innovations in the hospitality industry.

MoschMosch: Putting the Guest First with Oracle Point of Sale for Restaurants

Oracle Hospitality Check-In - 22 June 2017
I was very excited about my visit to MoschMosch, an Oracle Hospitality customer with 12 table service noodle restaurants across Germany. Their strapline advises that 'ramen makes you slim and attractive' - who could turn that down? In fact, MoschMosch's total commitment to the guest is extremely impressive. Many restaurant groups talk about the importance of 'the experience', but at MoschMosch they know exactly what that experience needs to look like in all of their locations. We filmed our MoschMosch video with Christopher and Pamela in their Frankfurt business district location. At 11:45am the tables started to fill up with office workers dropping in for a quick, healthy lunch, and the flow of hungry guests didn't stop. Orders were taken, food and drinks were served, and bills were paid as quickly as the customers needed and wanted. Oracle Hospitality restaurant technology is supporting that fast, efficient, yet very friendly service. In the video Christopher and Pamela, talk us thro

Are you prepared for tomorrow's disruptive technologies?

Oracle Hospitality Check-In - 11 April 2017
