Cooking & Warming Equipment Procurement Category Market Research Report from IBISWorld has Been Updated

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) January 23, 2015

Cooking and warming equipment has a buyer power score of 3.1 out of 5. This score reflects slightly positive negotiation conditions for buyers, stemming from a low level of product specialization, low switching costs and a low level of price volatility. However, buyer power is reduced by the low availability of substitutes for cooking and warming equipment and high volatility in the world price of steel and aluminum, key inputs in the production process of this equipment, according to IBISWorld business research analyst Jeffry Cohen.

The low level of product specialization positively impacts buyer power because many suppliers are capable of providing buyers with cooking and warming equipment of similar quality. Therefore, when purchasing standard pieces of equipment, buyers have a larger pool of suppliers from which to choose. This factor increases price-based competition among suppliers vying for a greater share of the market. Switching costs are also low, which boosts buyer power by making it easier for buyers to find a new supplier if their current supplier is not providing them with a satisfactory level of service. Because buyers can easily switch suppliers, they can use this as leverage during the negotiation process to receive a more competitive price. Furthermore, a low level of price volatility positively impacts buyer power because it improves buyers’ ability to budget accurately for future purchases, said Cohen.

However, some market conditions hurt buyer power. For instance, there are no direct substitutes for cooking and warming equipment as a product group. Therefore, buyers do not have the option of selecting alternative products from competing suppliers, which gives buyers less leverage during the negotiation process. Further reducing buyer power during the past three years was high volatility in the world price of steel and aluminum, which prompted suppliers to increase the price of cooking and warming equipment to protect profit margins. Major vendors include TriMark USA Inc., Edward Don & Company, Clark Associates and Hobart Corporation.

Feetz Raises $1.25M Seed Funding from Khosla Ventures To Build Customizable 3D Printed Shoes

Chattanooga, TN (PRWEB) March 13, 2015

Feetz, the digital cobbler making customizable footwear using 3D printing, announced today the closing of a $ 1.25M seed round. The capital infusion will be used to launch the Feetz platform directly to customers later this year via the first micro-manufacturing center in Chattanooga, TN.

Silicon Valley (Menlo Park) based Khosla Ventures led the investment. Additional partners include the JumpFund (Chattanooga, TN) and Uli Becker, former CEO of Reebok who has also joined the Feetz board of directors.

Today, we wear a shoe thats been made and sized to fit anyone. Im excited to bring a new reality to market by offering 7+ billion shoe sizes: 1 for everyone in the world, says Lucy Beard, CEO and Founder of Feetz. We celebrate your uniqueness by offering the only size youll ever need: SizeMeTM. Our shoes are not only custom fit but can be customized so that no two pairs are ever the same.

Customers create their perfect size at home in minutes by using the Feetz App to get a 3D scan of their feet using one piece of paper and three photos of each foot. Consumers select the design and colors, then Feetz uses the foot data to create custom fit, tailor-made shoes delivered within 7 days.

The core idea of Feetz is huge and so disruptive to footwear and its processes as we know it today, says Uli Becker, former Reebok CEO and new Feetz board member. This paired with the substance both founders bring to the table, I decided to throw in my experience and support to help build the company, so that Feetz becomes a powerful force in the marketplace.

Feetz, a member of the 2014 Master Accelerator program The TENN led by Launch Tennessee, will present at SXSW as a Wearables finalist at Accelerator event on Saturday, Mar 14th in Hilton Hotel, Salon J, at 11am.

Feetz has applied 3D printing technology to the footwear industry enabling consumers to have a perfect customized fit, said Vinod Khosla, partner at Khosla Ventures. Founder and CEO, Lucy Beard came to us with her vision to never try on a pair of shoes again, and were excited to help make that a reality.

Feetz has the key elements of a company in which the JumpFund seeks to invest– a strong, talented female leader, disruptive technology with huge market potential, and founders willing to grow their company in the Southeast, says Kristina Montague, general partner, The JumpFund. Lucy and her team are on the front line of making 3D printing wearables.

About Feetz

Founded in December 2013, Feetz is reinventing how footwear is made with a proprietary full stack technology platform that combines additive manufacturing and responsive materials with customizable biomechanics software.

Featured This Week On The Jazz Network Worldwide: Vocalist, Lorraina Marro with a Sneak Peek of Her New Single Not The End Of Me from Her Upcoming CD Mixed Emotions.

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 15, 2014

Lorraina Marro is one who knows how to set the tone of her musical offerings. Not only was her first CD You Must Believe In Spring released in 2004 a welcome expression of her vocal stylings, she continues to share her original lyrics in her upcoming CD Mixed Emotions produced by Christian Davis and Warren McRae. To whet the whistle of her fan base, she is giving The Jazz Network Worldwide the first opportunity to get a taste of whats to come in February 2015 with her new CD project Mixed Emotions.

“I am so thrilled to have my single “Not The End of Me” featured on the Jazz Network Worldwide. I have been writing lyrics for years about some of my own personal experiences and so excited to accomplish a life-long goal to put some of those lyrics to music. I couldn’t be happier to release my all original CD at the Catalina Jazz Club on February 1, 2015, the same fabulous venue where I released my first CD You Must Believe In Spring back in 2004.

Marro takes to heart the influences that guided her to her own musical expression. In May of this year she celebrated her reverence to songstress Nancy Wilson with a tribute performance at Catalinas Bar and Grill in Los Angeles. Clifford Bell, Marros musical director who has shared stages with many luminaries worldwide stated Catalina – (Yes, Virginia- There is a Catalina) had stayed the whole night…something she literally almost never does and she LOVED the show….I have known Catalina for ten years and she is the last gal standing from the great Jazz Scene of the past, present and future…She has seen and heard everyone.. This performance was only the precursor of what was to show up for Lorraina in 2014. Not only did she complete her second recording, she has kept the momentum of her musical offerings in front of her fans.

Marro also credits other extraordinary singers such as Barbra Streisand, Linda Ronstadt, Aretha Franklin, Della Reese, Dinah Washington, Dionne Warwick, Sammy Davis, Jr., and Frank Sinatra for inspiring her to develop and share her gift with the world.

She takes her fans on a personal journey, for all to capture the essence of the silver lining of her soul, from love, to the triangles of relationships and starting over, much ado that we all can relate to in our lives. Her original lyrics exude honest and pure expression that is ever present to her audience when she is on stage says Jaijai Jackson, Owner of The Jazz Network Worldwide.

The musicianship on the recording are: Ely Rise: piano and organ; John Meenk: guitar; Graham Ward: drums, Greg Sartiano: bass; in addition to: Warren McRae: bass, drums, percussion, additional keyboards, synthesizer and guitar; Steve McGuire: electric guitar, horns, additional percussion; and Chloe Love Smith: background vocals and writers Christian Davis, Warren McRae, Steve McGuire, Etienne ATN Stadwijk and Lorraina Marro.

Lorraina has performed her own shows at multiple venues in Los Angeles, including Prestons, The House of Blues, Catalina Jazz Club, Nolas LA, The M Bar, The Hollywood Studio Bar & Grill, The Holly St. Bar & Grill, The Cinegrill, The Gardenia, The Bel Age Hotel, the Marriott Hotels, and Wyndham Hotels. In Las Vegas for The Special Operations Warriors Foundation at the Four Seasons, The Aladdin, and The Las Vegas Hilton Hotels as well as Dannys Skylight Room in New York.

Most recently, on December 7th, 2014 Lorraina assembled some great musicians for Lets Toast To The Holidays event at the local jazz hotspot Upstairs At Vitellos in Los Angeles to a packed house. Award winning, critically acclaimed jazz vocalist/lyricist, Mark Winkler attended and stated Wonderful show. Great choice of tunes, great musicians and you were the best I’ve ever seen you. Congrats!

No doubt that the stage has been set by way of Marros new attitude and story-telling in her musical repetoire. Her new single Not The End Of Me released during the holiday season is surely a gift for her fans. A worldwide radio campaign is set in motion to take the airwaves by storm for her new CD Mixed Emotions as well as a concert tour in the works for 2015.

Gambling in Canada Industry Market Research Report Now Available from IBISWorld

New York, NY (PRWEB) December 05, 2014

The Gambling industry has struggled over the past five years against a number of head winds that have reduced overall demand for gambling. The sluggish economic recovery since the recession has weighed on consumers, as they have been unwilling or unable spend on discretionary services such as gambling. According to IBISWorld Industry Analyst Andy Brennan, Canada is not the only country experiencing a slowdown in gambling; spending on games of chance has flattened out throughout the western world over the past five years, following a sustained period of rapid growth. Anemic per capita income growth coupled with rising prices of many essential products has left less money in the pockets of consumers. Furthermore, rising competition from new casinos and other gambling establishments in the United States has hurt the industry. The strong Canadian dollar has also hurt domestic casinos, as US residents have been less willing to travel across the border to gamble. Overall, industry revenue is expected to decline moderately in the five years through 2014.

The Gambling industry is highly concentrated due to its unique regularity structure, which means the provinces control the licensing, regulation and, in some cases the operation, of games of chance. All provinces participate in national lottery schemes, but all provinces have different standards relating to games of chance, permitting or prohibiting different games. For example, casinos in Canada carry a range of regulatory forms and may be commercial, charitable, government owned and operated or owned by private companies under contract by provincial gaming authorities.

The industry will face an uphill battle over the next five years, Brennan says. Per capita household income is expected to pick up; however, many Canadians are focused on paying down debt and increasing savings, rather than splashing out on discretionary purchases. Furthermore, New York, Massachusetts and a growing number of US states have recently legislated to allow more destination casinos, meaning Canadians may be tempted across the border to gamble, and US residents are more likely to stay at home. Even if casino revenue drops, lottery sales will remain stable, driven by more online sales of lottery tickets. Overall, industry revenue is anticipated to grow marginally over the five years to 2019.

New Real Estate Projects in Miami Blossom and Offer a Perfect Blend of Architecture and Design Updates From Condoideas Realty Group

Miami, Florida (PRWEB) October 15, 2014

The fact that Miami is attracting the elite of international architects illustrates the inherent definition of cosmopolitan Miami as a melting pot of identities. This absorption of cultures and influences up to the top of these constructions is the signature style of Miami and the very reason of its appeal. Gold nuggets of architecture multiply to symbolize that Miami has become a magnet for Pritzker Prize winners, the ultimate gratification for architects. Now both interior and exterior architects converge to Miami for tourists, residents and passers-bys own enjoyment.

Project 1111 on Lincoln seems to have started the trend back in the recession years. It responded to a need for more functional urban spaces. Working with well-known architects was an obvious choice from the city to get out of the chaos in the safest way. This is when the City of Miami called Herzog & de Meuron, known for the creation of Tate Modern in London, to turn a hybrid retail complex into a house of cards on the West end of Lincoln Road.

Then followed Sage Beach, Echo Brickell and Echo Aventura, region-inspired designs and constructions of Carlos Ott, originally known for the Bastille Opera House in Paris. These examples give customers plenty of options to buy signature condos in Miami! To quote only a few, after creating a futuristic garage at Collins Park on Miami Beach and 1000 Museum in downtown Miami, Iraqi architect Zaha Hadid is back in Miami. She is indeed working on the Paramount Miami for the Miami Worldcenter. Very soon the official announcement will be made.

Such star projects have resulted in an influx of some more developments from the international whos who of architecture. They are known as starchitects because their works of art have drawn global attention thanks to their unwavering quest for innovation. Miami has become the nest for partnerships and collaboration. This year, developers of Miami have been seeking the involvement of luxury brands and high-end designers to bring chic within real estate. Such wind of cooperation heralds the real estate markets revival. Developers are launching breathtaking parties to announce the opening of sales and condos in these buildings are selling like hotcakes before they are even completed.

To that extent, more and more designers, architects and artists are coming to town to set a higher standard in architecture for the new real estate projects to come. Partnerships go from auto companies such as Porsche and Maserati, to furniture and fashion designers. For example, The Mansions at Acqualina come with a $ 100,000 dressing room from Ornare. Even more impressive, the Porsche Design Tower contains 3 car elevators to bring your car up to a sky garage inside your unit itself!

Moreover, every district is taking a stance. With the help of names such as Tommy Hilfiger, the Design District puts the stress on fashion and architecture for a perfect blend in the soul of the district. Besides, Miami Beach is witnessing the development of Faena District as the new Wonderland. It will indeed host an arts center, a hotel, an extra-luxury condominium, a bazaar and a cabaret for a very movie-like atmosphere.

Looking at renderings of all preconstruction projects gives hints about how Miami is now envisioned by these designers of the future. Pictures shout avant-garde curves and lines. Funny enough, they reveal a whole new utopia where buildings angles take the shape of waves surrounded by virgin forest-looking gardens where families holding hands stroll about. To that extent, starchitects and interior designers are changing the very core and spirit of the city. Through aesthetics and design, they claim quality, future orientation and specific values in the service of Miamis resurgence.

Such enthusiasm tends to inhibit one major question though: is that urban futuristic frenzy compatible with the very heart of Miami, which soul depends on its cultural and aesthetic diversity? The artistic community and real estate industry support these effervescent changes, as a symbol of the Magic Citys evolution and optimization.

As a conclusion, it looks as if Miami developers are ready to comply with the fantasies of their most imaginative potential buyers but also residents and passers-by who come close enough to set eyes on these constructions. Time has come to buy in Miami and become part of the current Miamian architectural maze.
