How pandemic bento boxes became care packages and a new business model

How pandemic bento boxes became care packages and a new business model

Growing up outside of Tokyo, Chef Kenji Miyaishi’s mother used to send him off with bento boxes of onigiri rice balls, karaage fried chicken, tamago-yaki egg omelets and vegetables from her garden.

Now, as he’s pivoted his upscale restaurant in Napa, California, to prepare and deliver bento boxes amid the pandemic, he says he aims to serve with the same values of precision, culture and care his mother did.

Bento boxes can be traced back to the Kamakura period in 12th century Japan, and this year — with restaurants relying on takeout and delivery — they’ve become a relevant and culturally authentic way for kaiseki chefs across the country to stay in business.

And some chefs say, at a time of uncertainty, the boxes have also come to symbolize nurturing and comfort.

“Bento is usually made by a mother for her children or husband because mothers want their family to eat healthy and balanced food,” chef Hiroki Odo of 14-seat kaiseki speakeasy Odo in New York said.

They are two of many Japanese restaurants that traditionally served fine dining kaiseki tasting menus at intimate chefs counters and have switched to offering packaged bento boxes.

Kaiseki is considered the most noble and difficult cuisine to learn in Japanese culinary culture, as it includes mastering not only sushi but a variety of techniques including grilling, steaming, deep-frying, simmering and broiling. The intricate and delicate nature of kaiseki cuisine means that dishes are meant to be eaten immediately for ideal temperature and texture. With the pivot to bento boxes, chefs are redesigning their food to be suited to travel and hold longer. The number of bento boxes is often limited, but at a more affordable price point than dining in at these restaurants.

NASCAR’s upcoming economic model spurs interest in new teams

NASCAR’s upcoming economic model spurs interest in new teams

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Justin Marks tried three times to buy the NASCAR equivalent of a franchise license that guarantees a car a spot in each week’s race. Twice he was outbid, he said, and a third deal fell apart.

Without that charter, Marks had almost no chance to get his team on track in 2021. He ultimately had to lease one from another organization to become the second new NASCAR owner to announce a team in the last month.

As NASCAR plans for the 2022 cost-cutting introduction of the “NextGen” new car, the demand for charters has soared. At least three have been sold since August — ownership records of each charter are not updated by NASCAR until the start of a new year — and the bidding process has been frenzied.


“It was much more difficult for us than I anticipated it being,” Marks said this week after announcing Trackhouse Racing. “There are a lot of charter buyers out there and unfortunately there are not a lot of charter buyers out there that are trying to build championship-caliber race teams.”

The environment has dramatically changed in the three years since Furniture Row Racing folded its team and put its championship-winning charter up for sale. Barney Visser struggled to find even a single bidder and Spire Sports + Entertainment, the agency Visser was using to broker a sale, gambled and bought it themselves.

The charter system debuted in 2016 to create tangible worth for team owners who in the previous independent contractor market had only inventory, equipment and possibly real estate to show for their NASCAR participation. If they went out of business, there was little recourse to recover any investments.

The 36 charters guarantee entry into every Cup race, and therefore a portion of the purse. The charters

Tesla’s Model 3 Lost In The World’s Most Advanced EV Market In A Peak Month (NASDAQ:TSLA)

Tesla’s Model 3 Lost In The World’s Most Advanced EV Market In A Peak Month (NASDAQ:TSLA)

Introduction

Norway is a small automotive market but is widely regarded as the most advanced market for electric vehicles (EVs) in the world thanks to generous government incentives. Battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and hybrids accounted for over 80% of sales in September 2020 and the national parliament has set 2025 as the target year for the country to go fully electric.

This is why electric vehicle data from Norway if often used as an indicator for the prediction which models and manufacturers will excel in a world in which electric vehicles become the norm. There is also no local player, which means the Norwegian EV market is not skewed like some other countries like France where the Renault Zoe reigns supreme.

As I mentioned in my previous SA article on Tesla (TSLA), its Model 3 always performs poorly in Europe during the first month of each quarter, with a big push coming in the third month.

Well, the Model 3 just lost decisively in Norway in September with the Volkswagen ID.3 getting 77% more sales.

The EV market in Norway

According to data from ElbilStatistikk, the top three bestselling EVs during the month of September were ID.3, Model 3, and Polestar 2 with 1,974, 1,116, and 928 units, respectively.

October is starting even better for the ID.3 with 213 units sold so far. The Model 3 has just five, but this is normal as Tesla usually performs poorly in the first month of each quarter as I mentioned.

However, 2020 YTD is also being dominated by another VW model, the Audi E-tron. And the Model 3 will be surpassed by the ID.3 in around three weeks at this pace.
