Perspectives from the Outside: CIOs & CTOs Bring Insight from Non-Foodservice Industries

The restaurant industry has historically been years, even decades, behind many other industries when it comes to technology. Robots? They’ve been doing jobs in manufacturing for decades. Loyalty programs? Airlines have had them forever. Customer data? Talk to hotels. But with demands for technology growing, restaurants have tapped these other industries for top executives to help them play catch-up. This session features three such executives, who offer their insights on what the future restaurant could look like.
