—Good customer service is the alpha and omega of our restaurant’s plan for success.

Alpha is the first letter of the Greek alphabet, and omega is the last. Therefore, alpha and omega is like A and Z.

Maybe it’s the inflight magazines and pretending that I belong to their target audience. Whatever the cause, ideas come to me when I’m up in the air. What kinds of ideas, you ask? Well, they’re great ideas, […]
