Restaurant Business: Matt McAllister on Shaping Consumer Views

I’ve always likened opening a restaurant to having a child. Over the years, you watch it evolve and you do your best to positively influence its growth. The struggle is how to convey what you’ve become to an audience that only remembers what you were. In this episode we’re chatting with Matt McAllister, the Head of Marketing at Yelp for Restaurants about the power of storytelling and how it can influence even your toughest critics. We’re all working to get better everyday and, today, Matt shares the tools and tactics he’s developed to let people know.
