Jon Taffer’s Kitchen of the Future Concept

Get the inside scoop on Taffer’s Tavern tech-driven concept at MURTEC.

One of the most exciting restaurant technology stories in the past year has been Jon Taffer’s new concept, Taffer’s Tavern.

HT caught up with Taffer, star of the hit TV series Bar Rescue, as he was preparing to open the first Taffer’s Tavern, in Alpharetta, Georgia, and that interview is showcased on Now,  MURTEC attendees can also get the inside scoop!  HT Presents:  Jon Taffer’s Restaurant of the Future, is one of the on-demand sessions at MURTEC, a virtual event that is now streaming on demand here and on the MURTEC '21 Content Hub.  


In his October 20, 2020, interview with HT, he shared details about his "kitchen of the future" and his Taffer’s Safe Dining System, which includes robust use of technology: Krowne's VR Workforce TrainingShift4Payments and Skytab for its POS and payment processing, and PathSpot's hand hygiene tech. Taffer’s Tavern has seated tens of thousands of customers through Waitbusters’ wait line and reservations management system and recently began offering takeout and delivery and added a thru-wall, contactless locker system.


  • Why Taffer says, “The future of food is not chefs, it's technology.”
  • How Taffer’s Tavern has twice the table turns of any restaurant in the business.
  • How this casual dining concept delivers high quality and consistent food without a traditional stove and hood.
  • How Taffer’s Tavern BOH labor is 40 to 60% below any other casual dining model
  • And what industry buzzword Taffer says is BS.
