Food News Media, publisher of award-winning QSR magazine, announced today the launch of Restaurant Management (RMGT), the first mobile magazine to cater exclusively to full-service restaurateurs and executives.

Created with the on-the-go foodservice operator in mind, RMGT delivers dynamic news coverage across a variety of digital platforms. Whether readers rely on smartphones, tablets, laptops or desktop computers, RMGT stories come alive via photos, video, audio and graphics at www.RMGTmagazine.com.

“What makes Restaurant Management different from other mobile news sites is the way we balance the immediacy of the Internet with the thoughtful journalism we know readers want,” said Blair Chancey, editorial director of Foods News Media.

“Not all news needs to be 140 characters or less. QSRmagazine.com taught us that if the story is compelling, a reader will stay and spend several minutes on it. We’ve incorporated that learning into RMGTmagazine.com. We’re taking the traditional print-trade model and extending the experience into the digital realm.”

Veteran foodservice journalist Ellen Koteff will helm the new magazine as editor.

RMGT’s first issue coincides with the annual pilgrimage for U.S. restaurateurs to the National Restaurant Association’s Restaurant, Hotel-Motel Show at Chicago’s McCormick Place.

The inaugural publication features a variety of in-depth reports on topics of vital interest to operators and the foodservice community at large, including an up close and personal interview with Dawn Sweeney, CEO of the National Restaurant Association. In addition to compelling, in-depth features, RMGT delivers in real-time the latest headlines that impact the foodservice business.

Each issue will also include:

  • One Year In—highlighting a restaurant, bar or pub that has recently celebrated its first anniversary
  • Head to Head—monthly comparison of two elements in the industry
  • Bold Thinkers—Q&A covering a foodservice professional’s sustainability efforts or activism
  • Step by Step—a guide through the creation of a classic menu item by a chef or culinary expert.

RMGT will connect with its readers in a variety of formats, including web, mobile app, and Facebook & Twitter. For more information on RMGT, visit www.RMGTmagazine.com.
