In order to remain relevant in the eyes of the consumer, today’s restaurant concepts need to be more in tune with their clientele than ever before. To do so, operators need to be able to adapt not only when it comes to menu composition but also with design, real estate selection and more. When getting their food some customers may want to drive up while others will prefer to walk up and some will want to dine on premises. This session will explore how operators can remain flexible by design to adapt to customers’ preferences
