The holidays are upon us! With so many events and activities on your plate it is understandable if news and information regarding the restaurant and foodservice industries may not be at the forefront of your minds. But here at Ideal Software as the old year draws to a close, we understand that now is the perfect time to start planning how you will revitalize your business for 2013.
As most of you are well aware, 2012 has been a truly significant year on many levels. From political upheavals in the US and around the globe to violent events on national levels as well as natural disasters of all kinds, it seems that every time we turn around there is something else that is occupying our time and attention and causing a strain on our budgets. In no area has this negativity been more evident than in the downturn of the economy.
From individually owned businesses to corporate conglomerates it is difficult to find any size business that has not been negatively impacted by the fluctuations and dips in the market. It is also hard to find any type of business that has not felt the squeeze. From the fitness industries to retail and from manufacturing to foodservice, everyone has to make difficult decisions in order to keep their heads above water.
While there are plenty of arguments as to the cause of the fluctuations as well as who is to blame, one thing everyone can agree on is that it is time to tighten our belts. No industry has been hit harder than the restaurant and foodservice industries, for when people start feeling the pinch of lessened financial income, luxuries like meals out and prepared foods tend to be some of the first things cut from their budgets.
It is with this in mind that we at Ideal Software would like to thank you for continuing to support us in our efforts to bring you the very best news, information and trends in the foodservice and restaurant industries in 2012. We also look forward to continuing to provide you with ongoing support throughout the New Year and into the foreseeable future.
