How many ways has your business shifted during the pandemic?

Are you proud of what you and your team has accomplished?  Do you see a bright future ahead?

Well if you’re still standing, it’s time to stoke that fire, get re-inspired and rock your restaurant.

I have to say, for our place the way forward was “Online Ordering” and the ability to instantly change menus to deliver guest convenience, wants and needs.  Available technology helped us transform our business to a completely different model when inside dining was shut down.

In this episode of the Restaurant Rockstars Podcast, I’m speaking with Brendan Sweeney, Co-Founder and CEO of Popmenu We discuss what technology is most important to serve your guest and re-build a stronger restaurant business.

Listen as we learn:

  • How to build more repeat business from first-timers
  • Simple SEO that drives traffic to your website and turns those visitors into regulars
  • Why having control to change your menu instantly is so important
  • Automated marketing that makes your business easier by delivering email, text and social media all while capturing and keeping your data
  • That technology does not have to be intimidating

And best advice from a restaurant pro on moving forward
