National Restaurant Association Show 2013 – Day 3

By Bijan Shahrokhi in Mobile Loyalty, Mobile Payment, NRA Show

We started the third day of the NRA Show by witnessing a great Harlem Shake performed by one of the exhibitors at the show. I recorded some of their dance and it is actually fun to watch them:) Here it is :

We saw great interest in the mobile space and were able to learn a lot from restaurant operators that visited our booth. Our goal is to deliver a first class customer experience that drives a restaurant’s business and attendees were happy to provide feedback and suggestions.

Technology could be seen integrated into equipment from drink dispensers, to coffee machines to remote food temperature sensors. The line-up to “design your own drink” with the Coke Freestyle machine seemed to never end. Expect to see more and more technology creep into both the front of the house and the back of the house of restaurants in coming years.

A key item of any restaurant show is the food and we would be doing a disservice if we didn’t share what we saw on that side. The Gibby Dog — a hotdog that is stuffed with cheese, wrapped in bacon and then deep-fried will find it’s was onto store shelves in the coming weeks. Food suppliers from all over the world displayed their products and provided samples to whet the appetite.

The show wraps up on Tuesday so come back to see more news and information from the show.
