Mobile technology and third-party delivery are bringing a sea change to both large and small operators, and after months of preparations, we’re ready to take it to the streets with the first-ever Food On Demand Conference March 19-20, 2018, at the new Renaissance Dallas at Plano Legacy West Hotel in North Dallas.

We are providing the platform for restaurant and foodservice’s key players to exchange information with experts in mobile ordering, internal and third-party meal delivery providers, prepared meals, packaging and robotics and drone technology. The goal is to increase efficiency and driving incremental sales in your restaurant.

The COOs of two of the top delivery services, Christopher Payne of DoorDash and Stan Chia of Grubhub are delivering the keynote addresses covering optimized back-of-the-house operations to how third-party delivery will evolve in the coming years. Other heavy-hitters in the industry, Olo CEO Noah Glass, Lynn Dyer from the Foodservice Packaging Institute, Bowie Cheung from UberEverything and NPD’s Analyst Bonnie Riggs, will share their perspectives on how restaurant brands can and should adapt to these fast-paced changes.
