The restaurant industry has long been a fruitful context for organizational scholars with various theoretical and methodological interests including innovation, entrepreneurship, social movement, identity, categorization, authenticity, institutions, local communities, and culture and status. Interests in studying restaurants have been freshly surging, partly due to the emergence of the foodie movement and the proliferation of detailed and comprehensive data sources on restaurants, their menus, and audience evaluation. This workshop aims to enhance richness and engagement across disciplinary and methodological boundaries and promote our comprehensive understanding of various aspects of organizing and managing the restaurant industry. Keynote speech by Hayagreeva (Huggy) Rao and presentations by six researchers with different theoretical and methodological backgrounds followed by roundtable discussion will help achieve this goal and introduce promising research directions that can unveil important yet underexplored topics in organization and management theory.
