When introducing their new mobile app in 2015, Taco Bell’s CEO referred to it as “the biggest innovation since the drive-thru.” Since introduced by Wendy’s in the mid- ‘70s, the drive-thru has transformed restaurants and driven much of the industry’s growth. In 2020, Covid-19 virus has changed the world affecting all sectors, including restaurants and its operations — pick-up, dine-in, payment methods, and delivery.
Much like the drive-thru and mobile apps, innovation driven by cutting edge technologies has rapidly and significantly transformed the customer engagement and the restaurant business. On a scale that could minimize previous transformations, restaurants are now confronted with online menus, digital ordering and physical pick-up, in-app payments, contactless dining, as well as personalised AI/ML dine-in experience.
