What’s Your Best Idea?

Fare magazine calling for submissions for “ideas” issue

Large or small, an “a-ha” moment can change your business, your momentum and your morale. Inspired by the “ideation” stage of the innovation process, Fare magazine is compiling a list of great ideas from industry operators, consultants and manufacturers, and we want your input.

This collection, to be featured in the March issue of Fare, will help inspire and motivate readers for their next “a-ha” moment. QR codes for food traceability, high-speed ovens at hotel check-ins, and a 75-bottle hot-sauce wall are just a few examples of ideas we’ve unearthed to help get the creative juices flowing.

Of course, no one knows the industry better than those in the trenches, and we’re asking our readers to submit their best ideas for possible inclusion in the feature.

What idea--large or small--catapulted your business to success in 2011? What new product, campaign or operational element boosted sales, market share, brand identity or company morale? And what about your peers--what other ideas in the marketplace have inspired you?

Help us make this collection of ideas a reflection of the Fare community itself. Send your submissions for the industry’s best ideas to awestra@cspnet.com by Jan. 13 for consideration, and watch for this entire issue of idea-generating insights.
