Last month we held our first roundtable in New York City to hear feedback and learn from the local restaurant community. Among the attendees were local restaurants and representatives from the NY State Restaurant Association and City Council who made the session a constructive conversation, sharing ideas about how we can best help our restaurants grow and succeed in today’s evolving restaurant environment.
Last week we took this experience to another thriving restaurant market: Philadelphia. Yet again we were welcomed with an informative discussion on how we can improve our platform to best serve you, our restaurant partners, ultimately helping you to best serve your diners. We were inspired by listening to our restaurants in attendance share stories of success, difficult times, and even their go-to secrets of the trade.
As we dove into our capabilities and demoed our insights dashboard, it was clear our partners had a variety of needs to benefit their business the most. One partner said, “The ‘menu updates’ functionality is great! It’s very easy to use and the easiest to read for back-of-house,“ leading his cooks to make fewer mistakes with Grubhub. But we do have some constructive feedback to address and incorporate, so we’re looking forward to making headway as we continue improving our capabilities.
Key Insights and Takeaways
Many of the same topics covered in NYC were discussed during this roundtable, and a few new ones came to light with our partners in Philly:
