I apologize for this week’s issue being a little delayed. I am wrapping it up at the Amsterdam Schipol Airport on the way back from a great week in London and Amsterdam.
In preparation for the International Ghost Kitchen Conference (being held in March in Amsterdam), we did a site visit to the conference venue (the Beurs van Berlage, which is beautiful venue in the heart of Amsterdam). We have confirmed several new speakers and sponsors on this trip and we look forward to announcing those soon. Anyone interested in expanding internationally (or anyone who could be a resource for companies looking to expand) should plan on attending the conference. Please contact us if you would like to discuss participating.
On Wednesday we hosted a lunch with about 30 leaders from the ghost kitchen, delivery, and foodtech industry (including several regional restaurant chains) in London. It was a wonderful opportunity to spend time with old friends and to make new ones. We look forward to seeing many of them again in Amsterdam in March. We are planning to host a similar gathering of industry leaders in Dubai in November. Please let us know if you would be interested in receiving an invitation (seats will be limited).
On to the news from this week. ItsaCheckmate, MrBeast Burger, SoftBank, QDOBA, and The Cloud all have some interesting announcements.
And now, the news…
