The shift in consumer behavior during 2020 has left a permanent mark on the restaurant industry. Consumers have more options than ever to satisfy their growing appetites, and restaurant marketers face more complexity than ever to execute their growth strategies. The Series presents a candid discussion on the future of the restaurant industry and the marketing innovations needed to effectively reach the ideal target audience post-Covid.

We assembled 10 industry experts across food delivery services, virtual kitchens, quick service, and fast casual restaurants as they discuss the opportunity and challenges. Get event recordings here.
