McDonald's and Other Fast-Food Chains Expand the Calendar -
March 5, 2013 | WSJ |By SARAH NASSAUER

The Calendar of Fast Food Restaurants Create New Seasons As Reasons to Indulge; Limited-Time Shakes...."Among the 250 largest chains in the U.S., limited-time offers have increased 25% over the last five years, according to the MenuMonitor created by Technomic, a food consulting and research firm.

Creating an unofficial calendar of limited-time fast foods can build anticipation. And consumers buy more when a limited-time offer is seasonal or linked to a specific holiday or event, say restaurants. "It's just fascinating how when leaves begin to turn consumers begin to think about pumpkin," says Mr. Costello from Dunkin' Brands. As winter approaches, people tend to have peppermint and chocolate on the brain, he says.

Even baseball season has become a peg for a new treat. Last May, Sonic's limited-time Hey Batter Batter Blast blended chocolate-chip cookie-dough batter and brownie batter with ice cream.

Spicier dishes make ideal limited-time offers because consumers may be curious about them, but not want to eat something spicy every day, say restaurants.

Packed Calendars Rule Over Executives -
June 16, 2008 WSJ column by CAROL HYMOWITZ. CEOs today are
hard pressed to meet of all today's demands from many stakeholders,
while operating under more scrutiny, making themselves more visible, and
making themselves more available. It is difficult to predict months in
advance, when trips are being planned, which customers will be the most
important to see. Importance of scheduling in downtime.
