FSTEC attendees got a preview of what's next in ghost kitchens, loyalty programs and digital attempts to help with labor.

Restaurants are more eager than ever to use customer data. But getting that information from delivery service providers or other tech companies remains a challenge.

Day One of the FSTEC technology conference served up a slew of jaw-droppers about current industry issues, from labor to supply chain to virtual concepts and ghost kitchens.

Restaurant Community is an online platform dedicated to providing insights and networking to restaurant industry professionals.

The fast casual’s redesigned app was created to “balance speed and joy,” Cava’s CEO said.

A new virtual community on restaurant technology will feature more than 40 speakers over several weeks.

The fast casual was honored, along with Wingstop and 7-Eleven, by the editors of Restaurant Business at the FSTEC conference.
