5 ways real estate can unlock growth for your restaurant
Many Americans have shifted to doing just about everything virtually, from work to school to happy hour.

Cleaning & Maintenance Management
In just a few short months, facility managers across the country have had to become cleaning experts. The COVID-19 pandemic has introduced a new urgency to cleaning and disinfecting that simply wasn’t there before. Facility managers are studying guidelines from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, developing strict cleaning protocols, and partnering with their building service contractors to ensure their buildings are as safe and healthy as possible.

Find the opportunity in your building water systems
Facility Executive
Water safety is a major concern for facility management and building owners. Safety issues related to water include diseases from biological hazards such as Legionella and Mycobacterium; chemical hazards such as lead, copper, and disinfection by-products; and physical hazards such as scalding.

Restaurants save money with the right recycling practices
Modern Restaurant Management
In 2018, when China stopped accepting plastics and recycling from the U.S., waste management professionals wondered whether the recycling industry could survive the loss of a major market for America’s commodity scrap.

A pandemic surge in food delivery has made ghost kitchens and virtual eateries 1 of the only growth areas in the restaurant industry
The Washington Post
Like most restaurant groups around the country, BBQ Holdings’ four restaurant brands got hit hard by the pandemic — shelter-in-place orders and limitations on dining-room occupancy meant sales plummeted in March, April and May. At Famous Dave’s, an affordable barbecue concept with 125 locations mostly in the Midwest, and Granite City Brewery, a group of 18 restaurants in the Upper Midwest, staff stood idle and annual sales projected at $6 million per store started looking like half of that.

Sustainability, sanitation, ADA: Critical considerations for restroom design
When it comes to sustainability, commercial restrooms have been somewhat ahead of the curve, largely driven by tighter local and federal codes but also as a cost-savings method for operators and developers.
