Independent restauranteurs have a unique opportunity to stand out amongst their peers while finding success comparable to bigger chains and restaurant groups. Investing in technology to make your concept grow is an opportunity most, if not all, independent restaurants can take advantage of, but what are the technologies needed to compete with the big boys? In this session, our speakers will discuss the technology used to market, take orders, complete deliveries, and more, to secure a seat at the table with the bigger players.
