Food for Thought 2018: Redefining Hospitality, Technology, and Labor in 2018

Three years, 80+ trade shows, nine customer meetups, five community events, and 20+ restaurateur interviews, we’ve finally arrived.
The Toast field team is launching Food for Thought, a community event for restaurant owners, operators, and managers to come together to learn from their peers and industry leaders. It’s a show that brings our company mission statement — “We empower the restaurant community to delight guests, do what they love, and thrive” — to life.
In the past year, we've chatted with restaurateurs at Toast Talks around the country, and have learned a few things about hospitality and community. As a restaurateur, the fabric of your life is dotted across your neighborhood, city, and even the country, and you’ve built lasting relationships with food, places, and people.
“I love being part of our restaurant community. It’s a super tight-knit group of people. Everyone is celebrating what everyone else is doing. If I ran out of napkins, I could go next door and borrow some. It’s such a great community — I met my husband, I met my best friends — and any time we can flag that someone in the industry is spending their night off with us, we try to take extra care of them.”
Why not share your philosophy on hospitality — and your challenges and solutions to the complications of running a restaurant in light of competition, generational shifts, and technology — with the rest of the restaurant industry at a Food for Thought event near you?
