A Great Vibe At The National Restaurant Show
May 12, 2012 | By wthompson |
In the past few blog posts, we’ve discussed the improving Restaurant industry and the general good feeling operators have about the future. Recently, we saw first hand what the good vibes were all about. The National Restaurant show was last week in Chicago. Thousands of restauranteurs walked the halls of the McCormick Center to check out the latest software innovations, inventory solutions, hardware and cookware. Needless to say, there were a lot of amazing technologies. But most importantly was the feeling we got from operators as they visted our booth.
There seemed to be a sense of anticipation about the future, instead of dread. The franchisees, owners, managers and chefs meeting with us talked about improving operations to account for changes to the their menus and growth strategies. There was a “we can do this” glow on their faces. And we weren’t the only ones who thought this… As we researched new ideas while meeting with partners, the same was said. So here’s to 2012 and the good vibes to come! Thank you to all who visited our booth…
