SPECIAL NEWS UPDATE

Romaine Lettuce What you need to know x As of 4/23/2018 all Performance Foodservice distribution centers are only shipping romaine products sourced from California, which is not a part of the CDC Health Advisory. x On 4/20/2018 based on new information, the CDC expanded its original health advisory to consumers to include all types of romaine lettuce from the Yuma, Arizona growing region—including whole heads and hearts of romaine lettuce, and chopped romaine and salads or salad mixes containing romaine. x No common romaine grower, supplier, distributor, or brand was identified during this event for an official Product Recall to take place. x Performance Foodservice distribution centers were not contacted by any federal, state or local government agency regarding the outbreak investigation or a product recall. x Romaine lettuce labeled as “Product of California” was not part of the warning and has remained acceptable to use. x Romaine lettuce packed in a PEAK™ branded white case from Performance Foodservice with label codes AREA ID = 2, 4, or 8 is from Salinas, California and is acceptable.  For questions, please contact your local Performance Foodservice distributor or your sales associate.

How to Draw a Crowd on Game Day By Piet E. Jones

The â&#x20AC;&#x153;big gameâ&#x20AC;? isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just one night in February. Sports are in full swing this time of year. Whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pro or college football, basketball, hockey, or baseball playoffs, big games can have a big impact on your restaurantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s business. So, how do you make sure your customers are happy regardless of if their favorite team is home or away?

Pregame or Overtime? First, ask yourself if people are coming through before the game or after. If theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re stopping in for a quick bite and a drink beforehand, make sure that they can make it to the stadium on time. For that, an express menu is the ticket. Offer a few different options, perhaps at a special price, that you know your staff can turn around quickly. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also an opportunity after the game. Fans leaving the game may ZDQWWROHWWUDIĂ&#x20AC;FGLHGRZQRUWKH\FRXOG be celebrating a big win or drowning their sorrows after loss. You may be in for a second rush, but simply being open wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cut it. You need a hook: maybe an offer for reduced-price appetizers or snacks for anyone with a ticket stub from the game. Nothing wrong with a late-night drink special to get them in the door either, as long as your local alcohol control board permits it.

If tailgating is on the menu, make sure togo is in your game plan. Not every fan can compete with those amazing pregame spreads out there. For them, a party packâ&#x20AC;&#x201C; DOOWKHIRRGDQGĂ&#x20AC;[LQJVIRURUSHRSOH â&#x20AC;&#x201C; might just be the ticket. You could even tailor the menu to the team. Food Network reminds us that many schools have signature tailgating dishes, some of which Road Games might already be on your menu. From fried When the local team hits the road, it might chicken for Ole Miss, to beer brats for the be time to turn those big screens on and offer University of Wisconsin, even gumbo for the same specials. But be mindful of the LSU, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a food that embodies the team main dining room. The last thing you want is and its fans. for tables of loud patrons sitting for several Building a Game Plan hours without turning them over. Directing fans to the bar or, even better, a private area How do you get those fans through your doors? Fortunately, we live in the age of where you can contain their enthusiasm social media and all those hungry, and allows you to host a long party without disthirsty, fans are just a few clicks away. rupting your usual service. 26

Targeted advertising is one method. Create an ad promoting your restaurant and the big game, then use the right keywords to make sure the right audience sees it. If you can, use the team or mascot name. You can also search Facebook for local alumni groups and reach out to them. Advertise party pack preorders on your page and have them ready to go so fans can pick them up on the way to the game. Social media is often easier, more effective, and cheaper than print advertising.

Upon Further Review... Some restaurants, though, simply arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the right venue for sports fans. But the games may still affect your business. If \RX¡UHFORVHWRWKHYHQXHWUDIĂ&#x20AC;FDQGSDUNing might be a problem. Offering valet to avoid losing diners is one option. You might


also consider arranging offsite parking for your staff and using a van to shuttle them back and forth to free up limited spots â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which may also build employee goodwill by allowing them to avoid parking issues themselves. And donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget to advertise, especially to customers looking to avoid sporting events. Offer food and drink specials to help attract those diners who arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fans. The big game can be a big deal to a restaurant. It can make for a huge night or leave you staring at an empty dining room. A little planning, smart use of social media and keywords, and appealing to peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s school and civic pride can go a long way towards ensuring you win the night.

In days gone by, Italian farm families hand-picked and home-canned tomatoes each summer at the peak of freshness with fresh basil and a kiss of olive oil. It was from these farm families that countryside “trattorias” came into being. And it was this sauce, often seasoned with onion, that trattorias named “alla rustica” (country-style) to denote its uncomplicated, farm-fresh tomato Áavor. Trattoria® Spaghetti Sauce “alla Rustica” is made according to that same time-honored tradittion n .... byy fresh-packing peeled strips of fresh tomato oes wiith h fresh basil, fresh sautéed onion, roasted ga arlic and n e[tra-virgin olive oil Trattoria®·s fresh tomato Áavo vorr vo and irregular g hand-crushed appearance pp are e appr pp prop op priiate served as is “alla rustica” (or with signa ature e sea eaeasoni so ning ngs) ng s)) ove ver a st s ea eaming pla l te of he hear arty tyy spa pagh pagh het e ti ti..
