About this talk

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. Join celebrity chef and restaurant owner Robert Irvine and Clay Johnson, Yum! Brands CDTO, on Wednesday, April 29 at 1 p.m. EDT for “Restaurants Leverage Innovation and Technology to Battle Disruption,” a webinar from Comcast Business and the International Food and Beverage Technology Association (IFBTA). Robert and Clay will discuss a range of topics, including the current industry landscape; the range of solutions restaurants are currently employing to continue serving customers and maintain a positive customer experience; the technology that supports new delivery and supply options; and what the long-term impacts on the industry might be. Speaker: • Robert Irvine has appeared on and hosted a wide range of Food Network programs including, Dinner: Impossible, Worst Cooks in America, Restaurant: Impossible, A Hero's Welcome, Operation Restaurant, All-Star Academy, Guy's Grocery Games, Chopped: Impossible, and Restaurant Express.
