Description

"On-premise restaurant technology such as kiosks and tablets are offering operators multifaceted solutions to growing labor challenges and consumer demand for speedy foodservice; however, most consumers are still not very accepting of fully-automated restaurant concepts. Operators should lean into consumer-friendly tech solutions such as pre-ordering options and tableside payments for sit-down meals, but they should not yet do away with human-derived hospitality."
- Jill Failla, Foodservice Analyst
