Deja Vu All Over Again: Lodging Lessons for Restaurant Distribution
May 17 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT
Takeout is in. According to the National Restaurant Association’s “2022 State of the Restaurant Industry” report, 54% of adults say takeout or food delivery is essential to the way they live, including 72% of millennials. To meet rising demand, restaurants have expanded off-premise dining options. Yet meal delivery apps like DoorDash, Uber Eats, Grubhub and others — whose collective sales in February 2022 grew 10 percent year over year — are complicating distribution and undercutting revenues.

Panelists translate lessons learned from lodging into advice for restaurant operators on how to best manage — and benefit from — these new channels.
