Eatery Pulse Media celebrates three-year anniversary in nation’s capital
Washington, D.C.-based publisher launches engagement campaign
Washington, D.C. (February 5, 2019) —Eatery Pulse Media, Washington, D.C.’s fast-growing information services, consulting and restaurant solutions firm, celebrates its three-year anniversary in the nation’s capital. Having recently expanded its offering through arel7 restaurant consulting and launching classes for future restaurateurs, Eatery Pulse is celebrating in style locally with a D.C.-based engagement and support campaign for local restaurant owners. and operators
“We’re excited about our D.C.-based content and all the support we’ve received over the past three years, and want to give back as much as we can,” said Rick Zambrano, Eatery Pulse editor and arel7 partner. “With the upcoming Season 2 of Swizzle Chill TV and our hands-on menu engineering profit optimization and partner marketing programs, there’s a lot to celebrate.
D.C.’s Swizzle Chill Channel
Swizzle Chill TV, part of the Swizzle Chill Channel, is readying Season 2, expanding opportunities for restaurants to show off their best food and drink through shows displayed in ultra-premium, 4K-UHD formats.Swizzle Chill is also powering EPN Colleage, a collection of “roaming” non-accredited courses for future restaurateurs in the District. As a point of high differentiation, the classes are business-based and teach culinary professionals and restaurant workers the accounting, business and tech side of operating a restaurant.
The Swizzle Chill Channel is something that celebrates the D.C. region’s established prominence as a food destination. Eatery Pulse recognizes the hard work of many top restaurant professionals who made it happen over the course of several years, showcasing the best of the D.C. region. “The Swizzle Chill TV web-broadcast show is a grand celebration. It’s something every DMV foodie can get behind, on YouTube, Twitter and Facebook” says Zambrano.
Highly-meaningful and ultra-premium consulting to restaurants
Added Zambrano, “At a time when the restaurant industry is being impacted by unconventional and technological disruption and a slowing global economy, and many restaurants are experiencing post-Government Shutdown sales impacts, we’re launching specials and free offers across our enterprise.” Restaurants on Zambrano’s profit optimization programs have historically earned back exponential returns on investment. arel7 partner marketing programs produce results for clients that garner 8 to 10 percent sales growth, when the industry averages half of that in totality.
According to the Restaurant Association of Metropolitan Washington, a local, restaurant advocacy group, restaurants suffered as much as 60 percent in sales declines during the shutdown—an amount not easily recovered, particularly at steady state and during the winter. Eatery Pulse is offering a promotion to restaurants located in D.C., Maryland and Virginia, effective immediately and through March 31, 2019.
