The Tech of Takeout | Brad Duea at Restaurant Revolution Technology

The restaurant industry has always struggled with digital modernization. Sometimes you’re lucky if your favorite restaurant has a menu online, let alone the ability to place an order. But with the Covid-19 pandemic, what was once a useful luxury is now a crucial necessity.

Many restaurants have defaulted to ordering services like Grubhub and Seamless, but with high fees, restaurants may need a better solution. At least, Brad Duea of Restaurant Revolution Technologies thinks so.

In this episode of UpTech Report, I talk with Brad about his efforts to bring an affordable and fully integrated online solution for takeout, delivery, and catering—a timely conversation for restaurants struggling to adapt to a rapidly transforming economy.
