Restaurants Leverage Innovation and Technology Webinar

April 29 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

In partnership with IFBTA, we’ll hear from celebrity chef and restauranteur Robert Irvine and Clay Johnson from Yum! Brands around how restaurants can use innovation and technology to battle disruption.
As COVID-19 has spread across the world, the restaurant industry suffered a seismic impact. By March 18, statistics from YELP showed that daily restaurant connections were down 54 percent overall. But restauranteurs are, at their core, entrepreneurs. They swiftly implemented a range of innovative solutions—like dedicated apps for online ordering and portable point-of-sale tools—many of which capitalized on the latest technology innovations.

Brands CDTO, on Wednesday, April 29 at 1 p.m. EDT for “Restaurants Leverage Innovation and Tech to Battle Disruption,” a webinar from Comcast Business and the International Food and Beverage Technology Association (IFBTA).
