The Culinary School at Evas Village Provides Job Training But More Importantly Assists Students in Finding Positions in the Food Service Industry
Paterson, New Jersey (PRWEB) October 22, 2014
The Culinary School at Evas Village is a private vocational school certified by the New Jersey Department of Education and Department of Labor and Workforce Development. The school was established to provide job training and placement in the food service industry for adults interested in attaining careers in the culinary profession. Executive Director, Marie Reger, explained that Evas Village established a culinary school to assist members of the community. The lack of employable skills prevents many members of the community from becoming self-sufficient and acquiring affordable housing, stated Marie Reger. The most important issue is to help people in the community improve their job skills and improve their employment prospects.
The five-month course provides fundamental cookery skills appropriate to basic positions in professional food preparation. Four-week modules include, Introduction to Culinary Arts/Breakfast Cookery; Buffet Prep/Short Order; Garde Manger/Pantry; and, Introduction to Baking and Pastry Arts. Topics cover recipe and menu genres, culinary math, knife skills, safety and sanitation, and breakfast cooking. Students will also be coached in workplace readiness and life skills throughout the modules. As students advance through the modules they practice cooking techniques, including soup, stock, and sauce production, vegetable and starch cookery, and scratch preparation of salads and dressings. More advanced classes cover meat and seafood fabrication, and cooking techniques; Garde Manger practices; and baking and pastry cooking techniques and production. The final module includes a four-week industry internship with post-internship placement services.

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) October 08, 2014
Rewards Network, a dining program that provides consumers with rewards of choice every time they dine at a program restaurant, announced today that they have released a new report, Two Factors that Impact Return Visits to Your Restaurant Its not what you think.
The newly released report uncovers the fact that, despite what most restaurateurs think, food is not the number one driver for return visits. In depth analysis on ratings and rewards uncover the true motivations and actions that drive them.
With 90% of our surveyed restaurants saying they value repeat visits over new visits, its critical to understand what drives repeat business into a restaurant, explained Kara Walsh, Chief Marketing Officer Rewards Network.
The results of the report were compiled from researchers at Rewards Network who utilized data from 99,000 verified dinner surveys and actual dining transactions to analyze consumer behavior. With over 11,000 restaurant partners, who service over 13.5 million customer transactions annually, Rewards Network believes understanding consumer behavior is essential to a restaurants success.
We set out to challenge the way most restaurateurs think about return visits so that restaurants can start focusing on what actually drives the repeat visits and increased incremental spending, continued Walsh. Restaurateurs need to understand who their customers are, their purpose for dining at the restaurant, and how they can motivate a return visit.
According to the company, targeted incentives are proven to help influence a customers future dining activity based on the behavior taken. The report finds that restaurant owners should examine behavior of their customers and motivate their specific desired behavior accordingly. It is not one-size fits all with every customer.
In their research, Rewards Network saw a 14% increase in incremental spending by active diners who were offered a bonus to incentivize additional dining experiences. When targeting a group of diners who were not active prior to a bonus, the company saw a 17% increase in spending. They concluded that by using data to know your customers and motivate spending, you can optimize your incentives for the greatest return on your investment.
Interested restaurant owners and restaurateurs can download the entire free PDF of the report at http://www.rewardsnetwork.com/business-solutions/report-influences-return/. Copies will also be available at the 9th annual Fast Casual Executive Summit on Tuesday, October 14, during a panel discussion led by Walsh, titled Can You Really Influence a Customer? at 11:00 a.m. MDT.
