Discover the pulse of the restaurant industry as we unveil new research about the challenges and costs that brands face in their pursuit of operational excellence and unit expansion.

In June 2023, EnsembleIQ and Crunchtime surveyed 200+ restaurant and foodservice operators to better understand their:

  • Food costs, task completion times, and other operational benchmarks  
  • Use of (or lack of) technology to complete key functions/tasks in stores
  • Plans for investment and strategic priorities to drive growth next year and beyond

In this live webinar, we’ll co-present the findings and trends from the research study, with opportunities to ask questions, gain additional insight, and explore where operators see room for improvement.

Join us to dig into the survey results and see how your stores stack up during this interactive session.
