Food & Beverage, 12/4: The Science of Sitting & Sipping


Patrons don’t often stop to think about the moving parts that work in concert to produce the delicious meal or tasty beverage that they’re about to enjoy. They shouldn’t have to. The experience is designed for them to enjoy their time without worrying about the details.

For those in the food and beverage industry, however, they know there’s far more to serving a meal than what meets the eye. This episode of the MarketScale Food & Beverage Podcast zooms in on a few of those details and highlights the processes that goes into serving a meal or brewing a beer.

The Science of Seating

Efficiency is paramount for restaurants as they seek to build a successful business. Wasted food, time, and motion can spell doom for even the best restaurants and chefs.

Ray Camillo is the founder and CEO of Blue Orbit Restaurant Consulting, where they advise restaurants on a number of issues from menu development to business plans. He joins the podcast today to talk about the science behind how restaurants seat their guests and explain ways the process can be made more efficient.

“The problems that people have are mostly related to how they seat and how they manage their front door,” Camillo says. He suggests that poorly defined roles for those who work at the front desk contributes to the issues further into the restaurant.
