Not to make a great effort of memory to recall when this was not so. Beyond the demonstrable fact that is fixing Pinterest for the US market, offering all its features and functionalities exclusively on "home soil" (ads on Pinterest, augmented reality...), very recently they caused a stir among his followers. All those who have a habit of keeping abreast of their latest developments and what they post on their official websites were disappointed to see the article "What is eaten in the World? From Alabama to Australia "

This article was developed in two distinct phases:

  1. A local phase, where food and drink favorites were studied within US territory.

¿Chicken Tortilla Soup?

A quick check sources we referred to the interesting blog of the cook and Mexican blogger Karla Hernandez, Hint of spice. Interesting, extensive and well detailed, full of gastronomic and culinary opportunities… but all with real knowledge of the Spanish food, apparently.

By extrapolation without the need to devote more time to this news, itself irrelevant for restaurants, we might assume that the other data presented in the study are equally erroneous, and do not indicate any interest of end users. These are relevant, and a lot, for catering establishments, because they are your customers.

But this detail does deserve a review or, rather, a little reflection:

The studies are based on data, They are its solid base, but sources are often out of reach of small catering business. For that reason, they may be tempted to accept blindly, by sheer inability to question them. And it is that not every time the "error" or "rabbit" is as obvious as here.

Nevertheless the restaurant has other sources of more reliable data Y, especially, best suited to your business, environment, circumstances and personality:

  1. What happens in your room and lounges
  2. What it is said of them in social networks

Sometimes heeding studies is like asking the nephew's neighbor's friend your wife what it wants. A restaurant has better methods Y, I assure, much more efficient to find out.
