Airbnb names Houston a top destination for digital nomads https://nkyzine.com/airbnb-names-houston-a-top-destination-for-digital-nomads/ Wed, 10 Aug 2022 22:01:15 +0000 https://nkyzine.com/airbnb-names-houston-a-top-destination-for-digital-nomads/ The closures that followed during the COVID pandemic has presented a unique opportunity for employees to experience working from home.

The closures that followed during the COVID pandemic has presented a unique opportunity for employees to experience working from home. Even though the pandemic has eased somewhat, many companies continue to offer hybrid and remote work options, giving workers the advantage of choosing their workplace, whether at home, in another state. or even somewhere abroad.

In response, some workers have chosen to become “digital nomads”: people who constantly move from place to place, relying heavily on their wireless devices, while maintaining a constant flow of work functions. It turns out that Houston is a prime destination for these mobile pioneers and their rental hosts, according to the North American Digital Nomads Index recently published by Airbnb.

The most important factor in the appeal of digital nomads to Houston as a traveling remote work hub appears to be affordability. Space City ranked second after St. Louis for the lowest cost of living among the nation’s 20 most populous metros, according to Airbnb data.

But there are clearly other aspects that draw people to Houston: our city ranked fourth in most long-term visits booked through Airbnb in the first quarter of 2022. And there may well be a lot of overlap between the leisure travelers and the mobile workforce; Airbnb also noted that one in five guests said they used Airbnb to work remotely while traveling in 2021, and the trend has continued this year.

What impact could the trend of digital nomads have locally? Data projections by Ladders in December 2021 predicted that 25% of professional jobs will be remote by the end of this year, as the rapid growth of remote work will continue. And in a trend report from Coresignal that analyzed more than 40 million public job offers from August 2020 to March 2022, Texas ranked second (behind only California) for most remote job opportunities. So it certainly seems possible that H-Town will remain a top destination for mobile professionals and that their share of the local labor force will grow.

One thing seems clear: As more companies begin to adjust to the new normal of remote working, employees are trading cubicles for greener pastures. And many of them choose to earn their paychecks while discovering all the hidden gems Houston has to offer.

Daddy’s Chicken Shack soars above its competition with a recently signed regional developer agreement that propels the emerging brand to explosive growth in Colorado and Texas.

Quickly making a name for itself in the competitive casual quick chicken category, Daddy’s Chicken Shack announced its third signed regional development agreement this year, officially marking 60 units in development for the brand nationwide. With a focus on its elevated, chef-led menu and highly advanced, technology-based operations, Daddy’s Chicken Shack recently caught the eye of an entrepreneurial family, including businessman of Denver Doug Dahlstrom, his two sons, Dale and Drew, and his wife Carol. This agreement includes an equal split of 20 locations between the Denver and Fort Worth areas, doubling the brand’s expansion in Denver and driving growth in Fort Worth.

As new franchisees of Daddy’s Chicken Shack, the Dahlstroms have extensive experience in a number of areas, including food service, real estate, general contracting and commercial insurance. The family has existing ties to Denver’s restaurant scene, with Doug co-owning two restaurants in the metro area. For Dahlstroms’ first Daddy’s location, the team plans to open in the Denver market by the end of the year to coincide with the opening of RE/MAX founder Dave Liniger’s first Daddy’s Chicken Shack in the Colorado too.

“Having been through the process of building and opening two restaurants, I am always on the lookout for the next concept that I can imagine being a national success. When I met the team at Daddy’s and saw the incredible product that Pace and Chris created, I could visualize that,” says Doug Dahlstrom. “I don’t take an investment like this lightly, and it was because of the product and the amazing people involved that I knew my family wanted to be fully committed to this brand. We are absolutely thrilled to come together for a new business venture and to join such a comprehensive group at this early stage of growth.

The Dahlstroms will play the biggest role in developing those 20 sites, with Doug overseeing Denver and Dale focusing on expansion in Fort Worth. In addition to restaurants, Doug has over 39 years of experience in the general contracting industry, bringing a unique and insightful perspective to the Daddy’s team. His company, Ponderosa Construction, has designed and built a handful of well-known restaurants in the area, making him the perfect candidate to join the brand at a time of rapid expansion. With Dale based in Fort Worth and having extensive experience with a national food brand, as well as involvement with several technology and real estate companies, he provides a comprehensive perspective on innovation within the industry. This experience, along with the family’s ties to various industries, has led them all to come together for this upcoming business opportunity and are committed to bringing their valuable insight to Daddy’s. Be in Fort Worth and have experience in the food business

“I started working with Doug in a construction capacity for the Denver and Scottsdale sites. We really connected on being able to bring a project to life for a franchisee with all the right systems and strategies and then I knew he wanted to be a developer. I took that as a compliment to the systems we’ve built so far,” says Pace Webb, who is CEO and leads the brand with Chris Georgalas, her husband and brand president. “As Denver is a major growth market for us and our flagship location in Houston is opening just around the corner, this development deal is the perfect extension of our growing brand. We are honored to welcome the Dahlstroms as new regional developers, and we look forward to seeing our growth together. »

The Dahlstroms deal comes just a month after Blair Salisbury and Robin Bieker signed another 20-unit development deal in California. This string of development deals was started by RE/MAX co-founder Dave Liniger, an investor-turned-franchise who is gearing up to open his main location with the brand in the coming months. Each franchisee is inspired and motivated by the dynamic concept, and particularly with the product created by Pace Webb herself. Webb, an accomplished entrepreneur and chef, handcrafted every item on the menu. She has perfected a one-of-a-kind flavor profile that blends her own southern US roots with the tastes of Southeast Asia. The result is a menu packed with fried chicken sandwiches, bowls and sides capturing a cult fanfare in its Southern California home market and soon far beyond.

Launched in 2018, Daddy’s business model is deeply rooted in technology. A brand ahead of the curve with front-end technology, the restaurant was designed to facilitate online ordering, app engagement, in-store web technology, exclusive pick-up areas and third-party delivery partnerships. Additionally, Georgalas’ vision included a dynamic backend technology suite that drives real-time data to better serve customers, employees, and suppliers.

With a regional development deal in place for the Dahlstroms, their immediate focus is solely on their prime location in Denver. From there, they will begin to actively market the franchise opportunity to qualified individuals who will continue to grow Daddy’s Chicken Shack.

Ideal franchise candidates have a desire to provide fresh, quality ingredients to customers as well as an idea of ​​leveraging an unforgettable experience by bringing people together. The brand aims to attract individuals and groups with previous restaurant experience who resonate with the brand values ​​of bringing sunshine to communities by honoring inclusivity, good food and a memorable customer experience.

LED magazine often shares resources and information from media partners, research organizations and other brands in our Endeavor Business Media family. This context is important because the connection between this blog and a November 2022 conference might not be immediately obvious to all readers.

A non-profit resource and advocacy organization, Resource Innovation Institute is the organizer of our former horticultural lighting event, now reorganized as the Resilient Harvests Conference. The company provides resources for professionals involved in developing controlled environments for agriculture, whether indoor farms or greenhouses.

“RII is a virtual organization spread across the country, but based primarily in Portland, Oregon,” Executive Director Derek Smith explained during a recent web call with our teams. RII’s initial competency was in the cannabis business. Now, this education, market research, and professional development resource has allowed RII to expand its services, staff, and information platform to address CEA outside of cannabis operations. For example, the company recently hired Rob Eddy, a former director of plant growth facilities at Purdue University and a Dow horticulturist, to serve as RII’s technical director, bolstering the organization’s skills in plant growth. engineering and management of cultivation facilities.

In addition to company personnel, RII relies on significant external support. “Our advisory board [members] represent utilities, regional and municipal authorities, policy makers, HVAC suppliers, lighting suppliers, program managers, architects and engineers,” said Smith. This diversity of perspectives and practical experience enables RII to take a multidisciplinary approach to its CEA guidance and best practice development.

Earlier this year, the company released “Best Practices Guide—Lighting for Controlled Environment Agricultural Operations,” authored by Gretchen Schimelpfenig, PE. A LEED-certified design consultant and former RII technical director, Schimelpfenig specializes in energy efficiency, CEA building engineering, operating systems integration and commissioning, and project management. The guide defines common CEA terms; explains the fundamentals of the impact of light on plants; discusses energy use, general regulatory guidelines, incentive programs, and facility cost management; and outlines key performance indicators, or KPIs, for optimizing cultivation under LED lighting.

“[CEA] is yet another brand new way to grow crops. You can’t just throw technology at a problem; you really need best practices for implementation and training etc. said Smith, explaining the drivers of the company’s approach to CEA tools and conference planning.

Smith observed that the lighting guide targets a practical application angle behind the upcoming Resilient Harvests conference program. Each session is designed to address three critical areas of education for CAOT professionals and those shaping its market expansion – policies, programs, and practices. Conference attendees will hear this resonate throughout the event, with information sharing sessions on professional development (training/certification opportunities), formulating policies that promote CEA opportunities, strategic methods of energy management such as on-site energy demand and generation, and more.

Download the best practices guide for free on the Resource Innovation Institute website, and register for the Resilient Harvests conference.

We’ll be looking at the program in more depth in the coming weeks online as well as in the October issue of LED magazine.

Formula 1 launched its Drive it Out campaign against all forms of abuse online and at events with a video featuring Stefano Domenicali, Mohammed Ben Sulayem and the twenty drivers.

According Formula 1The intent of this campaign is to “recognize that while passion and competition is a very important part of our sport, it can go too far, resulting in both verbal and online abuse for fans, reporters, presenters and drivers.

“We are all sending a clear message that this is not acceptable and must stop and that those who continue to spread abuse and offensive comments are not welcome in our sport.”

Here is a full version of the message:

Formula 1 is synonymous with competition and rivalries, but also with respect. Respect as competitors. Respect for our supporters. Respect for the whole F1 family.

Abuse of any kind is not welcome online, or anywhere in F1.

We are united and ask you to join us in driving this out of all sports and society. We have a duty to call that out and say – “no more.

Those behind social media with abusive and disrespectful opinions are not our fans. If you can’t be respectful, then don’t be part of our sport.

“Chase him away. Together.”

Several drivers, including Sebastian Vettel, Lando Norris and Sergio Perez, have called for lifetime bans for fans who abuse others.

Few were surprised when the new boy of land-based fish farming, Salmon Evolution, announced last month that it was looking to North America for long-term growth prospects.

The company, which is due to start production at its first Norwegian plant later this year, clearly sees it as the region with the most promising potential. The Norwegian Seafood Council also has its sights set on the other side of the Atlantic, which is why the United States will benefit from a significant increase in the organization’s marketing budget this year.

France, another key market, is also the subject of particular attention from the Seafood Council. Americans, it seems, don’t have enough salmon, but in France seafood consumption has fallen since the end of the lockdown and the Council wants to reverse this trend.

Three or four years ago, China and Japan topped the list of northern hemisphere salmon exporters. The Far East remains important with the Seafood Council hosting a webinar on China last month which showed that fish continues to be a favorite among Chinese who regard it as their most important food import. Ongoing issues with Covid and higher air travel costs following the war in Ukraine took away some of the shine, however. Webinar viewers were told that while China has stabilized the coronavirus situation, the country’s “zero cases” policy is having a negative impact on people’s willingness to spend. This has led to a 10% reduction in grocery store sales of all types, although online shopping is picking up.

Europe and the United States are easier and cheaper to get to and have more affluent consumers. The Seafood Council says the United States was the biggest growth market for Norwegian seafood in the first quarter of this year, with salmon leading the pack. Until May this year, seafood exports to the United States increased by NOK 1 billion (£83 million) compared to the same period last year, reaching a total of 4 NOK.2 billion (£348 million). Measured in volume, seafood exports increased over the period by 1% to 46,000 tonnes. Prices for salmon, cod and haddock are currently at historic highs, while trout and king crab are also doing particularly well.

Anne-Kristine Øen, the Council’s US envoy, said in April that the US economy is strong, despite supply chain challenges and inflation which is now at its highest level in 40 years. More than 90% of the jobs lost at the start of the coronavirus pandemic have returned and the unemployment rate has fallen to 3.6%. Giving an update for June, she said the main concerns now are high food and energy prices, but so far they have not hurt the economy as a whole.

Despite inflation and other economic challenges, the Seafood Council wants to maintain the momentum that started earlier this year, which is why it is ready to spend more. Øen says: “The salmon budget has doubled from NOK 10m to 20m (£833,000 to £1.66m), while the whitefish budget has increased from NOK 4m to 7m ( £330,000-580,000).

In addition, the Seafood Council is investing 1 million crowns (£83,000) in the promotion of shellfish this year. She adds: “The United States is a fast-growing market. In 2021, Norway exported 55,000 tonnes (+19%) of salmon to the US worth NOK 5.7 billion (+12%).

“There has also been good growth in exports of cod and haddock, as well as trout, king crab and snow crab.

“In total we exported 100,000 tonnes of seafood to the country (up 18%) worth NOK 8 billion or £664,000 (up 17%).

“Based on this development, the Norwegian Seafood Council market groups have made it clear that the United States is one of the markets that should be prioritized with strengthened budgets.

“It is of course very gratifying and welcome. The strengthened budget means that we in the United States can now work more directly with consumers.

“In recent years, the strategy has been to work towards the value chain. We are now well advanced in the work of changing strategy, tactics and marketing plans, and we will come back with more information on this after the summer holidays.

“Through the investment in shellfish, we will give king crab and snow crab a real boost. This will be a purely “business to business” investment.

french fantasies

So what about France, the country with the most Michelin three-star restaurants? It’s a mixed picture when it comes to fish.

Overall salmon consumption in May this year fell 29% to 1,999 tonnes, compared to May 2021, although sales of smoked salmon appear to be holding up. On the positive side, salmon consumption is 2% higher than in the pre-pandemic month of May 2019, suggesting that during the most difficult periods of confinement, people were buying salmon in large quantities and bringing it back to the house to cook. Cod consumption followed a broadly similar trend.

Given the many complexities and distortions as a result of Covid, it might be premature to read too much into the current numbers. Dining out stopped altogether for a time before stuttering back to life, while shopping habits changed dramatically. People were forced to eat at home, so fish, and salmon in particular, became a popular choice in households.

In France, old habits die hard. While salmon remains hugely popular, the figures suggest French consumers, after being almost locked down for two years, are making a strong comeback to traditional menu items now that restaurants have fully reopened. Provided there isn’t another pandemic lurking somewhere, it may take a few years before the industry can get a true picture of how things are going.

Meanwhile, Trine Horne, the Seafood Council’s Paris envoy has no doubts about her mission. She says: “This year’s campaign aims to encourage the French to continue to consume salmon and at the same time to increase their preference for the Norwegian origin.

“The campaign is divided into two parts. The second will take place at the end of the year to take advantage of the popularity of salmon around Christmas and New Years.”

The spring campaign which has just ended consisted of a before and after TV sponsorship of various cooking shows on the France 3 TV channel, an online video campaign and a social media campaign.

“Print advertisements have also been used in some of France’s largest specialist magazines: LSA, Linear, Points of sale and Rungis News.”

She adds: “Alongside the media campaign, various public relations actions have also been carried out to promote Norwegian salmon in France.”

Around Easter, the Seafood Council took part in one of the major French street food markets in Paris, “le Food Market” where “salmon rolls” were served to gourmet Parisians. The Seafood Council has also collaborated with Groupe Demotivateur, one of France’s leading digital entertainment media for millennials.

“With them, we made a ‘tips and tricks’ video to show French people different ways of cooking salmon,” she adds.

“And finally, we worked with French influencers who cooked salmon at home and shared photos and videos on social media, as well as published an article in collaboration with the French industry magazine LSA to address professionals. »

Makes sense, it’s probably cheaper to do digital, and it’ll make it easier to stream shows like Witch Hat Workshop. It also makes sense given the success of Jump+

We look forward to continuing our work with GSK to deliver ever more compelling digital experiences to their stakeholders and build on their already inimitable reputation.
