The Takeout, Delivery & Catering Show – A podcast for Foodservice Operators

Hi there,

Well, I finally have my studio going again and I’m really excited to be working on some brand new content to help foodservice operators get their minds wrapped around their Takeout, Delivery & Catering Strategies.

My work for the last 20 years through MonkeyMedia Software, The Catering Institute and Catering Insights has been focused on helping Restaurant & Foodservice Operators to understand the paradigm shift of managing a new operating model to incorporate off premises sales.

Please feel free to send me your feedback.

Here is a link to my show.  We have 3 episodes so far for you to listen to, and we are planning another 15 episodes in 2018. Hope you enjoy!

You can listen here.

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!
