December 2, 2016: New York, NY -- Harri, the most complete and effective solution to source, hire, and manage talent in the hospitality industry, has partnered with Squarespace, a leading web publishing platform that makes beautiful products to help people with creative ideas succeed, to develop design and branding packages tailored to restaurants and their online needs.  

Through this partnership, Harri users that need to build a brand or create/enhance their website, will gain access to a hand-picked network of independent Squarespace experts who offer top quality web design at a lower cost and with a faster turnaround time than traditional designers. Additionally, each expert-built website will include simple blocks of code that make it easy for Harri users to integrate their career portal into their restaurant's website. Harri users will be matched with their Squarespace expert by Crew’s intelligent project matching platform.

 "A July 2016 survey by the National Restaurant Association found that 75% of adults look up menus, 55% read reviews, 51% order takeout or delivery directly from the restaurant website"

“The quality of a restaurant’s food and service have always been the difference between success and failure in this industry,” said Luke Fryer, Founder and CEO of Harri. “Restaurants today rely too much on social media and review sites while not focusing on building a great website. That’s why we’ve partnered with Squarespace to ensure restaurant owners take control of their online presence.”

Recent data illustrates how important it is for a restaurant to have an engaging and updated Website. A July 2016 survey by the National Restaurant Association found that 75% of adults look up menus, 55% read reviews, 51% order takeout or delivery directly from the restaurant website.

Exclusive New Global Hospitality Master's Program Welcomes Inaugural Class



HOUSTON, Oct. 1, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Classes are under way for the first 28 students pursuing a first-of-its-kind master's degree in Global Hospitality Business, thanks to a partnership between three of the world's top hospitality programs in Europe, Asia and the United States.

This exclusive, industry-leading program was launched in 2015 by Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne, the School of Hotel and Tourism Management at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University and University of Houston Conrad N. Hilton College of Hotel and Restaurant Management.

The students began the intense, 16-month curriculum at EHL in Switzerland in early September. They'll spend their second semester at SHTM in Hong Kong, and after three months in residence with an international hospitality company, they'll finish the program and their third semester at Hilton College in Houston.

"This program is unique in that it gives students a truly global perspective of hospitality under the guidance of industry and academic leaders on three continents, which is invaluable in this ever-expanding, worldwide industry," said Dr. Ki-Joon Back, Associate Dean for Research and Graduate Studies at Hilton College.

While they're earning this prestigious degree, students will also gain firsthand insight about the global hotel and tourism markets and unparalleled industry exposure through professional certifications, a rigorous capstone project and business field trips to hospitality hubs across the world like Paris, Macau and New York.

Students accepted into the program choose which school will grant their degree and receive certificates from the other two institutions.

"Being able to choose the degree-granting institution lets these students tailor their degree to their post-graduation plans, while still having access to three incredible alumni networks. Specifically, a degree from UH will open more doors to them to build exceptional working relationships with the top hospitality companies based in US," said Dr. Back.

The inaugural class was selected from leading undergraduate hospitality institutions worldwide, with 19 nationalities represented. For more information on this exciting new program, visit www.uh.edu/hilton-college/About/Global-Hospitality-Masters.
