MEREDITH SANDLAND spent two decades in consulting, corporate strategy, and restaurant development. After building 1000+ restaurants as the Chief Development Officer at Yum! Brands' Taco Bell, Meredith observed that the on-demand economy was starting to affect restaurants. She joined ghost kitchen start-up Kitchen United as employee #4 to create their business model, raise initial capital, and serve as the public face of the GV (Google Ventures) backed disruptor. Meredith believes listening is core to leadership. She listened to some amazing entrepreneurs to write their stories, and the story of the endlessly innovative restaurant industry, in Delivering the Digital Restaurant.
