Don't Just Keep Up — Here's How to Stay Ahead of Your Competitors

In the wise words of Gartner Research's Senior Vice President Peter Sondergaard, "Information is the oil of the 21st century, and analytics is the combustion engine."

Do you harness the power of big data to keep fueling your business? Or are you exhausting your operations trying to find solutions and running out of steam?   

In this digital race, analyzing chunks of big data and understanding what it's saying in order to outperform competitors can prove to be an intimidating challenge. The process can take hours and hours of number crunching, and most busy operators, owners, and executives barely have enough time on their hands to run their day-to-day tasks. That's where Foodable comes in to make things just a little easier for you.

Each quarter, we release our Social Insights Report. Foodable Labs, powered through the Restaurant Social Media Index (RSMI), does a deep dive into unstructured data relevant to the restaurant and hospitality industry. In this Issue 7 release, we examine the data for Q2 2016. 

Within the Social Insights Issue No. 7 Report, we make big data easy-to-read and digestible into small bites by dividing the data into categories and presenting the numbers into visual charts and lists, allowing businesses within the restaurant industry to see how they rank in comparison to other brands.

Not only does this report discuss consumer trends in regards to their sentiment, actions, and engagement with restaurant brands, but Foodable Labs presents industry data broken out into several categories, including burger concepts, pizza concepts, Mexican and FreshMex concepts, sandwich concepts, pizza concepts, bakery cafe concepts, top 10 and top 100 industry leading brands, and more.

There are five core social intelligence metrics studied in detail within the report: sentiment, influence, engagement, location-based actions (LBAs), and mobile engagement.
