Welcome to another edition of This Week in Restaurant Technologies, with Nate Riggs and me, Brandon Hull. Nate and I debrief from the NRA (National Restaurant Association, not the National Rifle Association) show in Chicago.
Outside of eating way too many Chicago-style hot dogs, Nate also spent a good amount of time at the Tech Pavilion and visiting with intriguing restaurant technology partners.
I personally feel, and make this point emphatically in the conversation, that every restaurant owner needs to make it to the NRA show at least every few years — there’s just too much innovation on display to ignore it, or hope to catch up via articles and news after the fact.
And get this — though we talk about how overwhelming the show is, spanning three pavilions in fact — the NRA show will expand to a FOURTH exhibit hall next year. Give this show recap your attention, you’ll be glad you did. And tune in next week at 11:00 a.m. Eastern time, 8:00 a.m. Eastern at our Google+ page.
