RTN Member Spotlight: Gary Aschcraft

Chief Customer Officer, SynergySuite
  • What unique problem does your company solve for restaurants?
    We help restaurants manage their entire back-of-house without losing data to poor integrations. SynergySuite increases restaurant profitability with food and labor savings, and enables data-driven decision making.
  • Why did your company join RTN?
    We believe the tech community is stronger together and better able to serve restaurants when we learn from each other.
  • What’s your favorite personal pastime?
    Anything that takes me outdoors. I love hiking, mountain biking and traveling.
  • What three words would you use to describe what’s happening in the restaurant industry right now?
    Change. Opportunity. Growth.
  • What’s your most-used restaurant app and why?
    Love using Yelp when I travel to uncover hidden gems that I wouldn't otherwise find. On a day-to-day basis, I use the McDonald's app to make sure I get rewards for my Diet Coke habit.
  • Restaurateur you most admire and why?
    Charles Watson. Watching the rapid growth and innovation he's bringing to Tropical Smoothie Cafe has been very inspiring.
  • What technology are you most excited about for the future of restaurants and why?
    This sounds like a cop out, but back-of-house. Being a BOH tech provider gives me a front-row seat to seeing how it helps restaurants reduce food and labor costs, and how that in turn is giving them the tools to not just survive but thrive.
  • Where is your HQ Located ?
