How to Stay Crafty

Wine connoisseurs for years looked down their noses at beer, considering the latter, better-selling beverage as a drink of the “common man.”

That view is slowly evolving, however, as an increasing number of Americans become fans of the many craft beers being brewed all across the country. And it’s an evolution that’s starting to impact quick-service restaurants, too.

The Fight for America

With gloves off and the days ticking down to November 6, the two contenders for the most powerful position in the world—reigning President Barack Obama in one corner and challenger Mitt Romney in the other—are prepped and ready to compete in the battle of a lifetime.

Drive Time

Breakfast is on a roll.

Even though most Americans prepare or eat their morning meals at home, an increasing number of them are opting for breakfast on the way to work, particularly at quick-service restaurant locations.

Nearly half of consumers visited a limited-service restaurant for their early meal last year, up from a third in 2009. So it’s no surprise that at least half a dozen quick serves launched breakfast dayparts in the past three years, while many others added new menu items.

This Tax Season, Save 15 Percent at White Castle

"We wanted to provide our Cravers with a Slider exemption this tax day," says Jamie Richardson, vice president at White Castle.

Brands Get Behind Autism Awareness

Quick serves roll out promotions for Autism Awareness Month.

For the month of April, fast-casual restaurant Carino’s website is blue instead of the normal yellow, and if visitors click on the “Why Blue?” tab in the upper right-hand corner, they’ll find out why: the company is helping raise awareness about autism.

That’s because April is Autism Awareness Month, and quick-service and fast-casual restaurants are doing their part to help the cause.

White Castle Crowns Slider Bowl Champion

With a calculated flick of his finger Chris Eldridge sent his slider into a controlled roll that stopped in the end zone, scoring a late 4th quarter touchdown to surge ahead, he held on for the first-ever Slider Bowl Championship. White Castle awarded Eldridge, from the northern Chicago suburb of Roscoe, with $2,500 cash and White Castle for life ($500 gift cards for 25 years).
