Return on Information (RoI) leverages over 25 years of restaurant technology leadership experience delivering game-changing business and technology transformation to global restaurant companies.  RoI is positioned where industry disruptors, innovation, and seasoned restaurant experience converge to bridge the gap between executive strategies, technical architecture, vendor negotiation, investment, and project completion.


Franchise Organizations Specialty (IT-as-a-Service): Young, highly-fragmented franchised organizations are struggling with added complexities around lack of standardization, both when it comes to the technology in place across the brand as well as the lack of solid consistent operational process levers (how they staff, how the kitchens operate) and lack of solid consistent digital presence (some have their own app, Instagram). These disparities can cripple the brand. Tamy Duplantis and her team are highly skilled at streamlining and building viable systems, FAST. She and her team act as head of IT to the franchisees with been-there, done-that highly timely & relevant experience.
