  • What unique problem does your company solve for restaurants?

    SageNet understands that restaurants cannot operate in silos. It takes a united effort and a combination of people, process, and technology all working in tandem to support a truly consistent and frictionless customer experience. In an increasingly hyper-competitive industry that is becoming more reliant on connectivity every day, Sagenet provides restaurants with integrated network, security, and digital solutions that bridge the gap between physical locations and digital experiences creating something more Phygital (Physical + Digital).

  • Why did your company join RTN?

  • What’s your favorite personal pastime?

    Exploring new places with my wife and two boys.

  • What three words would you use to describe what’s happening in the restaurant industry right now?

    Automation, Digitalization, Consolidation

  • What’s your most-used restaurant app and why?

    The Sonic App. I may be a bit biased here, but where I am from you can't beat "Happy Hour all Day"!

  • Restaurateur you most admire and why?

    Cliff Hudson. His leadership style was one of humility, humor, and hard-work and the company culture reflected it, with a focus on relationships as a way of life and the never wavering entrepreneurial spirit.

  • What technology are you most excited about for the future of restaurants and why?

    It's easy to say AI, but I believe we are only just scratching the surface of how language learning models (LLM), machine learning, predictive analytics, computer vision, and other related technologies can benefit and shape the future of our restaurant experiences.
