Describe your work philosophy in one sentence.

My philosophy in life, and in work, is to treat others with respect and be an active listener. There is always room to learn and mistakes are teaching opportunities, not failures.

What unique problem does your company solve for restaurants?

Organizing restaurants’ menu and marketing information and making it accessible and useful by driving traffic and sales.

Why did your company join RTN? 

We help brands manage some of their most important and valuable information- their menu content. We joined RTN in an effort to make it easier for brands to ensure accurate menu content is available to every guest across every brand channel. To that end, we have focused our efforts on the Open API and 3rd Party Delivery workgroups.
