Solving Your Restaurants Technology Headache when it comes to 3rd party delivery, takeout and catering.

These days, my team is working hard on takeout, delivery & catering in foodservice operations.  Not much has changed for us in the last 21 years of this journey.   We have been focused on a single transformative idea which is that the largest growth opportunity for restaurants and foodservice operators is the off-premise sales opportunity.  I’ve been saying it for decades and its finally here.  Everybody seems to agree these days!

Today we support more than 6000 restaurants, and more are coming every single day.

For so many years while we were building our software at MonkeyMedia Software, nobody really understood what we were talking about.  It was complex.  It was sophisticated.  And it was early!  Very early!  The market just wasn’t ready.

Today, I am so proud to be part of a team that is working hard to solve the “off-premise paradigm shift” that is taking place all over the world.  Finally, we are getting the opportunity to work with the largest brands in the world, and they are using our ideas and our technology to radically shift the way they are managing takeout, delivery and catering.

This morning, I read this article about how technology continues to create a headache for US restaurants when it comes to delivery.

I love this article!  The photo really captures the essence of the the havoc that delivery is playing on operations.  And so, because of this, I am SO thrilled.  Thrilled because we have something amazing that will help.

This past April, I gave a keynote presentation at Restaurant Leadership Conference about this very idea.  Check it out here.  It will explain the solution to the complex challenge of solving operations for takeout, delivery & catering.

And so, I am so proud today to be part of a journey and a team that actually has a real life solution to this problem.  I am grateful and lucky to part of this and I can’t wait to share it with you.

If you are trying to solve your off-premise operations for your restaurant or foodservice operations, give me a call!  604-831-7422.  I’ll connect you with my team and they will fix it for you!

 

 

October 5th in Atlanta: Cold Calling Workshop for Restaurant Catering

We’ve seen incredible momentum at The Catering Institute in the past few months after the fantastic turnout at our 2017 Restaurant Takeout, Delivery, & Catering Symposium at Georgia Power HQ in Atlanta.

After 21 years as Founder & CEO of The Monkey Group of Companies – which also includes MonkeyMedia Software and Catering Insights – I couldn’t have imagined that we would get to work with our industry’s most important and largest brands.

When it comes to restaurant off-premise, I am so proud of the work my team has done to become thought leaders and help advance the business, technology, and growth strategies of our clients using The 5 Pillars of Successful Restaurant Takeout, Delivery, and Catering. It means the world to us to be here supporting so many restaurants, spanning the United States, Canada, and beyond, during this critical point in the industry’s evolution.

I’m excited to share our next event – a Cold Calling Techniques workshop, on October 5th in Atlanta.

Once again, we’ve partnered with our friends at Georgia Restaurant Association and Georgia Power to bring you a full-day workshop dedicated to increasing restaurant off-premise sales. This will be a great opportunity for restaurants looking to master the art of targeting and capturing catering leads – a foundational sales skill for building your client list.

We’re covering everything from how to overcome sales call fears, diversionary tactics, developing prospects, and overcoming objections, to addressing gatekeepers, and a day in the life of a Catering Sales Manager.

21 Days left to register for Our 2017 Takeout, Delivery & Catering Symposium in Atlanta!

Symposium-2017-postcard-front

Well, what a great result we are getting with this year’s 2017 Restaurant Takeout, Delivery & Catering Symposium!  This year is going to be fantastic!  I’m very proud of my team at The Catering Institute, MonkeyMedia Software and Catering Insights.

As of Today, we have more than 120 attendees from 70 different brands, 22 Dynamic Speakers and 20 value added Sponsors supporting this event.  And, we still have 21 Days left!  I’m hoping we may get to 160!  That would be something….

My plan is to help facilitate a day of conversation and debate about off-premise amongst restaurant operators, delivery logistics experts, legal and insurance executives, packaging experts, and technology and call centre perspectives.  In addition, we will be discussing the application of the 5 Pillars of Successful Restaurant Takeout, Delivery and Catering and how it can impact your brand.

If your current off-premise business strategy is getting lost in today’s technology and media landscape, then this symposium is for you.

Hope to see you there.
