Posted by Tom Johnstone on Jul 20, 2018 10:30:00 AM

The food industry is massive and nuanced.

Posted by Tom Johnstone on Jul 9, 2018 10:30:00 AM

It’s natural to assume that given the rise of digital media over the past twenty years people would value online interactions more than face-to-face meetings. However, that assumption is incorrect. Rather, most customers prefer interacting with a human being –– especially when making a big decision. This is one reason why car dealerships continue to thrive, despite the abundance of online intel relating to cars and car ownership. Deep down, people want to “talk it out” in person. As such, the physical layout of your dealership is an important aspect of your business’s performance. After all, if your dealership design is letting you down, you could be losing out on any number of sales as a result.
