Asheville restaurants and food businesses are betting on the future

Whether making lemonade of the lemons COVID-19 has been hurling, finding unexpected silver linings amid the unraveling of carefully laid plans or climbing onto the rainbow emerging from the storm,  a surprising number of restaurateurs and entrepreneurs have mined the deep well of positive-thinking cliches and forged ahead through the tempest-tossed year 2020.

Tasty Greens

“Sometimes our team has to say to me, ‘Barry, that’s a great idea, but how the hell does it fit with the Monk brand?’” Barry Bialik, CEO of Thirsty Monk, says with a laugh, explaining how he came to open Tasty Greens. The greens- and grains-focused, fast-casual restaurant shares the same Biltmore Park property occupied by the Thirsty Monk brewery taproom and Monk’s Flask cocktail lounge.

Bialik, a vegetarian since he was 15, had been toying with the idea of opening such a place well before COVID, with an eye on the national success

Trump is betting big on the suburbs, but his strategy is failing ‘bigly’

Arguably more than any other group, suburban voters were responsible for returning Democrats to majority control and Nancy Pelosi to the Speakership of the House of Representatives in 2018. In the hours following the election, Politico described the midterms as a “suburban bloodbath” for the GOP, with the vast majority of Democratic gains in districts adjacent to cities.

Trump is betting big on the suburbs, but his strategy is failing ‘bigly’

Just two years previously, then-candidate Donald Trump won the overall suburban vote by five percentage points according to exit polling. That margin fueled his razor-thin wins in the key “Blue Wall” states of Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin and kept Arizona, Florida and North Carolina in the GOP column. Trump successfully capitalized on what has long been one of the key bastions for reliable GOP support. Since 1980, “Republicans have lost the suburbs only three times since

DraftKings: ESPN Deal Opens Up A New Era For Online Sports Betting (NASDAQ:DKNG)

DraftKings (NASDAQ:DKNG) is one of the main online sports gambling companies with a lot of growth prospects in the future.

The company went public on April 24th, 2020, using the popular SPAC strategy when it merged with Diamond Eagle Acquisition Corporation at an IPO price of $19.

(Source: BizJournals)

Since then, many developments took place, and DKNG stock is on a tear.

I’m going to discuss the main bullish catalysts and present my current valuation and long-term price target for DraftKings stock.

I’ll also discuss both positive as well as risk factors that could affect the stock price in the short term.

As with most new IPOs, we must use forward-thinking with an unbiased mindset that embraces change.

What’s important for the future of DraftKings is what will happen in the future, not the past.

As Warren Buffett once said:

If past history is all there was to the game,

ClassPass CEO Fritz Lanman reveals how a company built around indoor group fitness classes is surviving the pandemic by betting big on virtual classes

ClassPass CEO Fritz Lanman.
  • As fitness companies struggle to stay in business amid the pandemic, ClassPass has stayed afloat thanks to its ability to evolve quickly, launch new revenue streams, and prioritize the needs of its customers. 
  • Within ten days of statewide shutdowns, ClassPass launched a live-streaming platform that allowed its partners to offer virtual classes. A month later, the fitness startup was streaming 50,000 classes a week from 4,000 studios around the world. 
  • Though the company has taken a sales hit from eschewing commissions and disabling recurring monthly fees for members, ClassPass CEO Fritz Lanman told Business Insider its part of a long game strategy toward its initial public offering. 
  • “We’re really lucky that we’re well capitalized to weather the storm and we have the resources that we need to build the company that we want to build,” Lanman told Business Insider.

There has never been an American sports weekend like this one, and there may never be another one like it again. That’s exciting for sports fans and big business for U.S. sportsbooks. 

The pandemic has pushed the National Hockey League and National Basketball Association playoffs to September, overlapping with Week 1 of the National Football League season for the first time ever. The U.S. Open men’s tennis final and a slate of Major League Baseball games will make Sunday one of the biggest sports betting days ever, according to Patrick Keane, chief executive

Analysts Are Betting On Saga plc (LON:SAGA) With A Big Upgrade This Week

Shareholders in Saga plc (LON:SAGA) may be thrilled to learn that the analysts have just delivered a major upgrade to their near-term forecasts. The consensus estimated revenue numbers rose, with their view now clearly much more bullish on the company’s business prospects.

After the upgrade, the consensus from Saga’s three analysts is for revenues of UK£526m in 2021, which would reflect a painful 34% decline in sales compared to the last year of performance. Prior to the latest estimates, the analysts were forecasting revenues of UK£465m in 2021. The consensus has definitely become more optimistic, showing a nice increase in revenue forecasts.

NFL betting will be ‘business as usual,’ online casino software CEO says

Internet gambling software CEO Dermot Smurfit told “Varney & Co.” on Monday that he thinks the NFL season will be “business as usual.”

The GAN CEO made the comment four days after several NFL teams canceled practices as athletes across the country protest what they see as injustice against Black people.

Host Stuart Varney noted that the NFL season is supposed to begin in less than two weeks, which he said is “set to be big business for online gambling cites.”

Smurfit said it is “a reasonable expectation” to believe the NFL “is going to recommence and see through the season to some degree of normalcy” based on “all the information out there.” He added, “We’re aligned with industry consensus” that the NFL is going to restart.

On Thursday, the Arizona Cardinals, Denver Broncos, Chicago Bears, New York Jets,
