The first part of this article from Hospitality Technology summarizes the National Restaurant Association’s 2015 forecast which boasts good news for the industry this year. We’ve already talked about that and are very excited for what’s to come.
What I found interesting was the latter part of the article discussing consumer trends and their demand for technology. They still want and like the personal aspect of eating out, but most want some technology to make the ordering process more efficient and convenient. Interesting stat from the article: 8 of 10 don’t eat out as much as they’d like to. So you have to wonder how do we get them to eat out more?
