  1. Sobre el punto 10 totalmente de acuerdo. Nosotros ofrecemos eso con nuestra startup española; Nuestro servicio permite meter publicidad en el proceso de log in y la más utilizada a parte de hacer alguna promoción es incentivar los comentarios en Facebook, Google y Tripadvisor. Realmente estoy de acuerdo en todo lo que cuentas. Para mí la clave es la formación del personal. Tanto en ser buenos profesionales como en que participen de la vida social del restaurante. Hoy en día lo que triunfa es eso. Everyday. Saludos y enhorabuena por vuestros posts. Siempre impecables.
