How Tech Is Revolutionizing Restaurant Operations

  • Feb 17, 2016 · 7:00 PM

From online ordering to POS (point of sale) and CRM (customer relationship management) tools, startups are developing new technologies to help restaurants streamline operations and improve margins. 

Come network with the community and meet some these innovators at our February Food+Tech Meetup. You'll get an inside look at their business models, products, challenges and lessons learned.

There will be snacks from Forkyoo, Thaithentic and Munch Hours Inc. and drinks from Woodward Extracts, Five Acre Farms and more.

Are you a restaurant operator who has experience with different restaurant technologies? We're looking for one more presenter. Email nina[at]foodtechconnect[dot]com with more information about your company if you're interested.

    Great event, thanks for organizing. Loved that we had Javier, a real person running a real restaurant there :) I think it's key that we all remember who the "customer" is when we make tech. https://www.instagram.com/p/BB7v1e5L9zX/?taken-by=farm.one

    Dear organizers, My name is Ardi, I wanted to attend the tonight's Food&Tech meetup but it was sold out. I then contacted a few members that were going to attend and managed to buy one ticket from a member who was no longer willing to come. I have the original email confirmation when she purchased the ticket. Her name is Jamie Garde, and my name is Ardi Petri. I do have the unique confirmation number for this meetup. I just wanted to double check that there are not going to be any problems when I come tonight at the event. Please advise. Bests,
    Ardi
