Commercial Integrator: What Restaurant Clients Crave

Overcoming acoustic, content, automation and emergency notification challenges is critical to winning over restaurant clients.

by Robert Archer

The restaurant business is extremely competitive and challenging. Failure rates are high. But integrators can give their restaurant and bar clients a competitive edge through ambiance.

Many restaurants are paying more attention to the audio content they distribute in their dining rooms. Custom audio playlists were once the domain of high-end restaurants but they’re trickling down to casual dining businesses, according to the Associated Press.

360 Media Innovations Cooks Up a Bakery for the Cake Boss

JERSEY CITY, NJ—When you’re America’s favorite baker, you can’t be seen working in just any run-of-the-mill production center. That’s why celebrity baker Buddy Valastro reached out to the team at 360 Media Innovations, who worked with the Cake Boss star to create a customdesigned 35,000-square-foot bakery production center in Jersey City, NJ.

According to Chima Gale, president of 360 Media Innovations, the ELAN g! control system was the best choice for Carlo’s Bakery Lackawanna. “Because the ELAN g! graphical user interface is so easy to use, it’s perfect for this type of commercial installation, where a lot of people will be using the touch screens to adjust system settings. It will be simple to integrate additional subsystems in the future, and the already installed paging and safety features add so much value to the audio system that it would have been a waste to use any other product,” he said.

Elan: Busy New Jersey Integrator Updates Restaurant From Old Control System To Elan G! In A Single Day!

360 Media Innovations’ Abiose Gale attests to the fact that, with ELAN g!, “We write far more orders and far less code, and that has made all the difference to the growth of our business.”

PETALUMA, CALIFORNIA - August 1, 2012—After the owners of the New Jersey-based restaurant group Delicious Heights learned how much easier it was to manage their restaurant’s audio and video with the ELAN® g! Entertainment and Control System in one restaurant, they decided to upgrade their Berkeley Heights, N.J. flagship location from their original AMX system to ELAN g!  What’s more, and because everyday counts in the restaurant business, it was of the utmost importance that the g! system be online right away without disrupting a single hour of business operations.

Commercial Integrator: Cake Boss Already Hungry For More A/V Upgrades

Reality show TV star, 360 Media Innovations plotting more ways to upgrade new 35,000-square-foot bakery production facility.

by D. Craig MacCormack

The area that seems to have the most potential is the two classrooms where Valastro, his decorators and other guest bakers will offer paid baking classes to the public. There’s talk of taking the classes to the Web too, says Gale, charging attendees a small fee to watch the live feed or recordings. “I see it as a cash cow,” Gale says.

There will also be a couple of digital signage players installed in the new Carlo’s, which will show clips of Valastro’s TV and public speaking appearances and give tour attendees more information about the history and future of the operation. The new space will also allow Carlo’s to start shipping its goodies across the country, or around the world.

CEPro: How 2-Man Shop Landed Six-Figure ‘Cake Boss’ Job

Small integrators parlay small subcontract into landing the project of a lifetime for a celebrity client.

By Lisa Montgomery

It’s common when starting a business to have visions of grandeur. All too often, eager entrepreneurs dive into their new endeavors expecting a rush of clientele to stampede their storefronts.

In the custom electronics installation industry, these visions of greatness typically include working in huge, custom-built houses; installing elaborate, bells-and-whistles systems; and catering to customers who willingly give them carte blanche on the project.

In reality, it usually takes years to achieve this sort of business nirvana. To expect it to happen overnight is a big, fat pipe dream. Even CE pros who have been fortunate enough to reach the big leagues have recently had to scale down their grand business plans to weather the finicky economy.
