 The Web Marketing Association is looking for the Best Restaurant Websites in the world as part of their 26th annual international WebAward Competition for Web site development at the WebAward Web site. The WebAwards is the standards defining competition that sets benchmarks for 96 industries, including restaurant web sites, based on the seven criteria of a successful Web site.

Restaurant and More Convenient Lunch Meals Are Returning After A Pandemic Induced Hiatus

Before the pandemic, grabbing lunch from a restaurant or prepared foods from a grocery store was frequent because consumers were at work, school, or out and about. Restaurant lunch visits experienced steep declines early in the pandemic when 78% of lunches were prepared and eaten at home, but with more consumers returning to worksites, schools, and regular midday routines, restaurant and other convenient lunches are recovering, reports The NPD Group. 

Online and physical restaurant visits during lunch increased by 4% in the year ending September 2021 compared to a year ago when visits were down by -11% based on NPD’s continual tracking of the U.S. foodservice industry. Although lunch traffic hasn’t fully recovered to pre-pandemic levels, down 8% from September 2019, the increase in visits is a significant improvement over the double-digit declines experienced last year. According to NPD’s recently released Future of Lunch study, restaurant lunch visits are forecast to grow by double-digits from 2021 through 2024, but the gain will be 2.4% below pre-pandemic levels.

In addition to returning to restaurants for lunch, consumers have also returned to convenient ways to prepare or source lunch. During the height of the pandemic, when many consumers were home, they had more time to heat their lunches, driving categories like soup and warm sandwiches. Now, with workplaces starting to open, kids at school, consumers working from home, and travelers returning to the road, easily transported categories, like packaged lunch and snack kits, are positioned to do well through 2024, finds the NPD study. Consumers will also look to retail ready-to-eat foods for convenient lunches.

“Consumers are on-the-go now, and the lunch rush is coming back, which means consumers are looking for convenience, whether they prepare it or a restaurant or retailer does,” says Darren Seifer, NPD food and beverage industry analyst. “Food manufacturers, restaurant operators, and retailers all have opportunities to fulfill consumers’ lunch needs whether they’re commuting, staying at home, or a hybrid of the two.”

Tampa Bay area restaurant is featured on the Food Network’s hit show Restaurant:Impossible

The co-owners of Mr. B’s Southern Cuisine, Pastor Calvin Jefferson and Ninkia Green, were blessed with an amazing renovation and much-need funds to revive their struggling restaurant impacted by the pandemic.

Mr B's Southern Cuisine in Tampa Bay

Mr B’s Southern Cuisine in Tampa Bay

TAMPA, Fla.June 4, 2021PRLogPastor Calvin Jefferson, co-owner of Mr. B’s Southern Cuisine in Tampa Bay, was recently featured on the Food Network’s hit TV show, Restaurant: Impossible, and walked away with a newly-renovated restaurant —and a newfound appreciation for his business-savvy sister.

Mr. B’s teams up with Restaurant: Impossible—Owned and operated by siblings Calvin Jefferson and Ninkia Green , Mr. B’s is a soul food restaurant that offers a wide selection of Southern comfort foods. Like many restaurants, Mr. B’s was struggling to to stay afloat amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The fate of the restaurant took a transformative turn when Mr. B’s was chosen by Chef Robert Irvine to be featured on the show. In two days and with a $10,000 budget, he gave Mr. B’s a major face lift.

This episode of Restaurant: Impossible aired last Thursday and since its airing, the restaurant has experienced a surge in business. Aside from the episode being deeply compelling and heartwarming, viewers were also captivated by the awe-inspiring renovation! Chef Robert Irvine could sense the low energy when he walked through the door, and one of his goals was to elevate the energy as well as the overall aesthetic of the restaurant.

“We are forever grateful for what Chef Robert Irvine brought here to Mr. B’s. His wisdom and culinary brilliance was exactly what we needed during this challenging time. Restaurant: Impossible resuscitated Mr. B’s and gave us a fresh start!”, said Pastor Calvin Jefferson.

To say that the outcome of the renovation was great would be an understatement. Instead the result was superb—perhaps sublime is more fitting. Mr. B’s received an amazing makeover, but the real magic occurred when a strained relationship between Calvin and his sister and business partner Ninkia, was restored. Viewers got an opportunity to see the brother-sister duo repair their broken partnership in a loving and affirmative way; And once they were able to see eye to eye, the palpable tension subsided and the restaurant flourished.

So, if you are ever in the Ybor Heights area, make sure you stop by Mr. B’s Southern Cuisine for some delectable comfort food. Be assured, you will be very happy that you did!

Mr. B’s Restaurant is located at 3401 N Nebraska Ave. It’s regular business hours are Sundays-Thursdays 8 a.m.-4 p.m. and Friday-Saturday 8 a.m.-7 p.m. It’s open for takeout, dine-in, and delivery via Grub Hub, Uber Eats and DoorDash.
