Jeff Bezos (Amazon CEO) is famous for saying “Find the things that won’t change in your business and invest heavily in those things”. So, 10 years from now, what does that look like for us? Well, menus have been around for thousands of years, and we fully expect them to be around long after all of us are gone - and most of them will shortly be presented electronically.
So, we’ll continue to invest in technology and systems to make menus more useful for customers, easy to use and enjoy, and more profitable for our customers.
