Sara-Christine Gemson looks ta the troubles befalling Oxfprd’s small businesses Coming back from the summer vacation, you may have noticed the addition of the Gourmet Burger Kitchen and Wagamama to the culinary offerings of central Oxford. A stroll down Cowley Road reveals the arrival of a Costa Coffee and the opening of a new G&D’s. Little Clarendon Street, which formally appeared to be a bastion of indie charm (if in appearance only) recently added Strada to the chains to which it plays host. What’s happening to Oxford? Despite its unique architecture that attracts tourists from all over the world, are its commercial offerings becoming increasingly homogenous? And if so, is this something of concern?On this question, the City Council abdicates responsibility for any major role in the nature of shops and restaurants available in Oxford. John Kulasek, the Acting Assets Manager for commercial rents at the city council, while hesitating to give an exact figure, said that the town council owned at most five percent of the commercial spaces in Oxford. On Cowley Road in particular, the town council has very little control over the commercial spaces available: “I’ve not actually counted them but I imagine there must be a couple of hundred shops on Cowley Road. The City council owns six. So our influence there is very slight.” However, he admits that the council does have a bigger influence in the center of town, where it owns entire streets such as George Street or stretches of Broad Street as well as the Covered Market. For the property that it does own, the council has a policy to try to maximise local opportunities. Everything else being equal, the council would favour a local business over a chain: “In terms of commercial shops and restaurants we would look at all offers received and, wherever possible, try to use a local company.” So how does he explain the Gourmet Burger Kitchen replacing the independently owned lebanese restaurant Tarboush on George Street? In that case, the owner signed over his claim to the property to GBK and the council didn’t actively seek out a chain. More generally though, Mr. Kulasek asserts “Sometimes you can’t hold the tide back” so the council tries to concentrate the chains in one area rather than have them scattered all over the city. In the three and a half years that he’s been in his position he has noted a change “I’ve noticed an acceleration of chains trying to get into the city.”For Ian Pavier, the manager of Hedges, one of the butchers in the Covered Market, the current trend dates much further back. The Covered Market wasn’t always filled with souvenir shops and cafes catering to tourists: “In the last fifteen years the butchers and fishmongers have all dwindled away.” Supermarkets like Sainbury’s and Tesco, with their centrally located “local” or “metro” branches can capture a major share of the grocery business even in a town like Oxford, where the majority of students don’t have cars and can’t drive to the big supermarkets on the outskirts. There has been an outcry in the press and in recent books published on the supermarket industry in the UK on how big supermarkets are even encroaching on small city center shops with their smaller “convenience” shops. Conversely, the “Market Investigation into the Supply of Groceries in the UK” report published by the Competition Commission on 31 October concluded: “Concerns have also been raised regarding Sainsbury’s and Tesco’s expansion in convenience store retailing. We do not find any adverse effect on competition arising from these issues. We consider that those convenience store operators that provide consumers with a strong retail offer will continue to survive and prosper, and the evidence suggests that current developments in convenience store retailing reflect consumer preferences.” This reflects Mr. Pavier’s experience when Sainbury’s first opened in the center of town. While they initially experienced a drop in business, it didn’t last: “People like Sainbury’s and Tesco’s don’t really know what butchery is so people go there once or twice but can’t find what they want so they go back to the butchers.”So is Oxford no worse off for having lost a few independent restaurants and shops in exchange for chain restaurants and the big supermarkets? It depends what you are looking for. Wanting to ensure a uniform, quality experience and avoid any variation that might tarnish the company reputation, head offices make sure that franchises provide a certain level of service, quality of food and maintenance of venue. Aneta Wetlsha, the assistant manager at GBK on George Street explains that people from the central office visit regularly to make sure that the franchise is abiding by company rules. In some cases, customers are quite happy with the result. “I don’t see it as a big loss, given that there are three other similar restaurants left” says Farid Boussaid, a student, of Tarboush being replaced by GBK. “The service [at Tarboush] was not always great and the burgers [at GBK] are excellent!” Similarly, John and Ann Priest who’ve been living in Oxfordshire since 1988 have noticed that Oxford has become more commercial but didn’t seem too concerned about the trend. In fact, many customers actively seek out chains for the familiarity they offer. Seth Anziska regularly studies in coffee shops and chooses his venue based on the type of work he’s doing: “For uninterrupted writing, I prefer Starbucks on Cornmarket, which has outlets, long hours and no accessible wireless. Sometimes not being able to get online is a must to avoid distraction. The familiar ritual of Starbucks means I could be anywhere, which helps to keep me grounded.”On the other hand, it’s precisely that uniformity that can be off-putting. Independent businesses tend to be a more integral part of the community and make an effort to offer a more personalised service. Jan Rasmussen is the owner of Green’s Cafe on St Giles: “What we try to offer here is to be part of the local community. I’ve been here for two years now and I know pretty much all the regulars. People know me, we have a chat.” Because it’s their own business and it’s usually “one of one”, owners of such independent businesses are often far more actively involved in the daily operations. As Mr. Rasmussen puts it, “Places like Starbuck’s and Costa do very well, but when you go in, you don’t normally meet Mr. Costa.” This doesn’t go unnoticed. Customers such as Aleksandra Gadzala note the difference in the service offerings in independent places likes Green’s: “The independent coffee shops have more character, often friendlier staff and a greater variety in terms of food.” Indeed there is often a certain flexibility in the offerings of independent restaurants that chains can’t accommodate. At Green’s, you can ask for something off the menu and they will be happy to satisfy your special request.This attention to individual and local needs is what distinguishes the independent shops from the chains. Green’s flexibility stands in contrast to Wagamama, where any special request would need to be sent to London for approval: “The customers should experience the same service everywhere they go […]. They [the franchises] can also create their own seasonal specials but all these need approval from the UK Wagamama head office team. We obtain our food from our central depot which supplies all our restaurant so that we can have a standard uniformity throughout the group and achieve high quality and standards in all our restaurants, so that the food consumed in Oxford is of the same quality as the food served in any of our other branch’s.” Similarly, the big supermarkets arrive with their established selection of products that don’t necessarily reflect local tastes, needs or products. At Hedges all the pork and lamb is from the Cotswolds area and they actively try to sell as much local product as possible. The big supermarkets are now starting to offer local products, but these new offerings seem to be a marketing ploy as opposed to an organic way of doing business. This can be seen in Tesco’s official line on the local products it sells: “Tesco is British farming’s biggest customer and our own customers tell us they want us to do even more to find and stock great local products. This year we have opened up seven regional offices all of which are making great progress in this area, and have introduced 600 new lines. It’s something we’re committed to.” (More generally, when trying to find out about service offerings and their relationship to Oxford, managers and owners of independent shops and restaurants were available and happy to talk while I had to go through press offices based in London for chains such as Wagamama and Tesco.Even though both chains and independent stores can offer quality products and services, the concern in Oxford is that independents are being pushed out because they can’t afford increasingly exorbitant rents. Max Mason is the owner of the Big Bang, a restaurant on Walton Street in Jericho that offers gourmet bangers and mash. He expresses serious concerns about the changing nature of the commercial offerings in Oxford: “Oxford is a place of international interest, a place people visit wanting to see oldie Britain. They want to see them cobbles, they want to see the Covered Market, they want to see independent places.” Yet such places are being pushed out because “Oxford is so expensive that only the big chains can afford the rent.” So what does the future hold for the independent shops and restaurants of Oxford? There is hope, though success depends on a lucky combination of good business sense and hard work. When he opened Green’s two years ago, Mr. Rasmussen was both tactical and pragmatic. He couldn’t open in a more prime location because of the competition and the expensive rents. But he found a promising location on St Giles: “We had to choose our location very carefully. We are lucky, we are in an independent area. St Giles is not the main shopping area and there aren’t many commercial properties here so there can’t be a Starbucks or something next door, which is something we definitely considered.” Mr. Mason also highlights the importance of intelligent appraisal: “You need to really work hard on what you are, what your special slant is on the market, how you are different from your competitors and then work out if it’s financially viable. It’s a tricky balancing act.” Fortunately, there’s a critical mass in Oxford that’s interested in keeping independent places open and that ensures that restaurants like the Big Bang do well: “There’s a massive intelligent, affluent market. There are people who will pay the Covered Market prices. The populace of Oxford is keen to keep the town an interesting place.” There is also the strong possibility that niche business models like the Big Bang, which only serves food and drink produced in a twenty mile radius, may be the only viable business model in the future. As Mr. Mason explains: “In three or four years time, when petrol is ridiculously expensive, all restaurants will have to source everything locally because it’s not going to be viable to source things from nine or eleven hundred miles away.” Until then, you can choose between a bowl of noodles, a burger or bangers and mash next time you go out for dinner.
EDMONTON (660 NEWS) – It’s official, Bill C-69 has been proclaimed law in Canada.The bill which critics labelled the ‘No More Pipelines Act’ will change how major energy projects are reviewed and approved in Canada and has received heavy criticism from the oil and gas sector and several provincial governments.In a statement released Wednesday night, the UCP said “This is a dark day for Alberta and Canada as a whole. As we have said loudly and repeatedly, this act is an unconstitutional attack on Alberta and our vital economic interests.”The statement also said the government will take its fight to Ottawa and launch a constitutional challenge against C-69.In June the bill passed through the Senate with a vote of 164-56. The Senate had proposed nearly 200 amendments to the bill, the majority of which were rejected.READ MORE: Trudeau government to reject amendments to C69: report“I cannot believe that a Prime Minister would be prepared to push forward a bill that strikes at the heart of Canadian unity and at the same time the economy of Canada. That’s just unprecedented, that bill needs to die,” said Energy Minister Sonya Savage shortly after the bill passed.Premier Jason Kenney also spoke at that time, repeating his stance that Alberta is being treated unfairly.“Albertans cannot be expected to continue to pay the freight in the Canadian federation if the same federation continues to block our ability to develop and get a fair price for our resources.”Kenney repeated his stance that a referendum on equalization payments could come by October 2021.Right now, there’s no clear date to when the UCP will launch its legal challenge, especially with the Federal Election slated for October.Kenney hopes Canadians will elect a government that will immediately repeal Bill C-69.

9 2017 8:03 am Woodland Hotel once the biggest hotel in Pune Top News From the price of dishes being the sole deciding factor while choosing a restaurant for family dinners to eating out becoming more about the complete “experience” of dining the food and beverages sector in the city has undergone immense change in the last two decades The hospitality sector say industry watchers isn’t remotely recognisable when compared to what it was 20 years ago With an influx of people in Pune after the boom in IT sector increasing number of foreign trips by locals and more awareness about fine dining expectations from hotels in terms of services and add-ons had prompted a competitive market to reinvent itself dramatically Increasing numbers In the past 7-8 years the hospitality industry has seen the biggest expansion in business especially with international hotel chains making an entry in local markets say hoteliers Suresh Talera one of the oldest hoteliers in Pune recalled “In late 1980s when we opened the Woodland Hotel it was the biggest hotel in Pune with 105 beds At that time Taj Blue Diamond had 92 beds and another three-star hotel near Pune railway station had 84 beds At that time with 700 beds across all our hotels combined we controlled 50 percent of the Pune market Today JW Marriott alone has 550 beds at one property” Talera said in 2000 there were about 1500 beds available in four-star and five-star hotels and they used to be almost completely sold out Today such hotels have 7500-odd beds while the demand is for about 4000 beds “… There was a time when hoteliers had to connect with each other to accommodate extra guests today that’s not the scene” he says It is not just the extra number of beds which has led to this change adds Talera “Around 20 years back barely any flights were available and that’s why people would have to stay back overnight Now people find it easier and cheaper to come in the morning and fly out by evening after attending their meetings” he says Pointing out the change in the food industry Talera says two decades ago food and beverage bills at hotels would contribute to barely 20 per cent of the total revenue; today they amount to 50 per cent of the revenue Well-travelled patrons demand international standards more choices Ganesh Shetty president of the Pune Hoteliers Association said that in the last two decades the entire outlook about eating out has changed completely From a limited number of stand-alone family restaurants and few fine dining options then to a plethora of choices available today and with specialised restaurants and international cuisines the experience of dining out has changed completely JW Marriott has ‘550 beds at one property’ “Earlier the prices of dishes was the main criterion… limited kind of cuisines were available and international food choices were fewer Today patrons are more concerned about presentation ambience cuisines of their choice… they are ready to pay any amount for ‘authentic’ experiences The patrons are now well-travelled exposed to world cuisine and they want international standards so specialised cuisine restaurants are the rage today People want innovation in menu ambience and plating which has led to a boom in the restaurant business” he says Praful Chandavarkar of Malaka Spice adds “In 1997 Pune was a much smaller city When things like the IT boom Mumbai-Pune Expressway happened it brought in a whole bunch of new residents to Pune giving the entire city a cosmopolitan feel That’s how the industry changed to adapt to the new demands of these new customers” Shetty says that an RTI application moved by the association two years ago showed that Pune today has over 10000 restaurants cafes food trucks bars and pubs “While we don’t have official figures I think two decades ago the number would have been less than even 1000” he adds Social media’s impact Another major change has been the increasing influence of social media on the food industry From Instagram to reviews by food-related apps restaurateurs have to keep social media in mind “Food is now more like a status symbol Pictures are clicked and likes happen even before the dish is tasted instant reviews are shared on social media and many times they do more harm than good People want to talk about food be seen as someone who knows food but very few actually know it well With food bloggers online foodie groups and even apps we are always on our toes” said chef Shailendra Kekade of Stone Water Grill Online Food Deliveries Other than social media another factor has been the opening up of the online food order & delivery segment Restaurateurs however are happy with the development saying it has brought in more business “Earlier people who lived far away would think twice before going to a restaurant after a long day at work Today they can simply order online and one of these portals will pick up the food and get it to them Yes there is a price involved for us but we also have a wider reach In fact this segment has benefited fast food restaurants the most which serve food on the go” says Shetty Means of Marketing Things have moved so quickly in the last few years that just opening up a super-speciality restaurant ones with a quirky menu or innovative decor doesn’t make the cut anymore To stay ahead of the competition restaurants are now resorting to special marketing initiatives like food festivals flying down international chefs and even hosting pop-ups by home chefs “I don’t really see a lot of innovation happening in food in terms of these events but it does create brand value and recall In this crowd one has to stand out…” says chef Milind Sovani of April Rain Unconventional Avenues The food industry in Pune isn’t just restricted to brick-and-mortar restaurants From food trucks in street corners serving everything from waffles to French fries and a number of home chefs delivering food as well as hosting meals there are unconventional options available for eating out “A city like Pune needs much more of this alternative dining out scene More food trucks and more home chefs would mean more vibrancy and fun” says
