The Tech-Based Future of the Kitchen 

September 30, 2020 at 01:00:00 PM · Central Time (US & Canada)
About This Webinar

This webinar is sponsored by our partner Square for Restaurants.

Kitchen-based businesses have been through the ringer this year. Whether it’s shutting down indefinitely, pivoting to a market-style model, making a curbside pickup work, or relying entirely on delivery. Now, with restaurants of all sizes and shapes beginning to open back up, it’s clear that they need the right tech tools to manage the rapidly changing landscape. We’ll take a deep dive into the kinds of tools restaurants can use to succeed (such as KDS, QR-codes for menus and online ordering).

Restaurant Business Editor Peter Romeo speaks with Restaurant Owners and Lior Koren, product manager for Square for Restaurants on finding the best solutions for your business to adapt.
