BREAKOUT SESSION / TUESDAY / OCTOBER 24, 2017 / 1:00 PM
Meeting the Demand for Delivery
Driven by greater demand for convenience in food service, delivery is becoming a go-to channel for consumers in developed markets. Global chains are pioneering a global standard for successful delivery formats, stretching the bounds of what foodservice operators can provide in terms of convenience to consumers.
Delivery has evolved beyond dropping a pizza off at a customer’s home, however. It now includes delivering mobile and digital orders to in-store customers. This session will teach foodservice operators about innovative ways to use technology to improve all delivery service.
