In episode #032 of the Social Restaurant Podcast, I welcome Geraldine Blanchot, co-founder of Pattern Pod.
Geraldine and her partner Kristen Dettoni have founded a startup company that works with restaurants and retailers to help blend consumer psychology with great design to create an environmental experience that entices your customers to buy more, and keep coming back.
Geraldine has spent her career as a designer, traveling the world to get inspiration for the patterns, colors and textiles that help brands and locations stick in the mind of the consumer. It’s fascinating stuff to ponder, and I know you’ll think differently about your restaurant environment after listening to this interview.
