Some of the fastest growing chains in the restaurant industry are the ones embracing innovation throughout their operations. The Restaurant Franchising & Innovation Summit will explore how limited-service chains can leverage innovation in a variety forms — from experience innovation to kitchen innovation to menu innovation and beyond — as a catalyst for franchise expansion. By continually investigating and investing in cutting-edge solutions for both the front of house and back of house, franchisors put themselves in a very strong position to attract potential franchisees who are seeking opportunities with forward-thinking brands.

The Restaurant Franchising & Innovation Summit will help franchisors be more progressive in many areas of their business to attract both investors and customers. Some of the topics that may be addressed include:

  • In-store technology
  • Customer engagement
  • Marketing and branding
  • Promotion and loyalty programs
  • Menu development
  • Kitchen design
  • Restaurant operations
  • Franchise development
  • Financing
  • Employee recruitment and training
  • Supply chain management

The Summit is targeted to anyone on the corporate franchising side involved in driving product, service, equipment, and customer-experience innovation, new franchise development, franchise branding, and consistent technology adoption, use, and utilization among existing system franchisees. This also includes successful franchise owner/operators who serve in advisory capacities, as pilot testers, early adopters, and vocal champions of new system innovations and technologies.

  • Franchise development
  • Franchise operations
  • Information Technology
  • M-commerce / E-commerce
