Moving Restaurant Technology Forward

The pandemic was a gamechanger for the industry as restaurants of all sizes were forced to dramatically change their technology, from contactless payment methods to online menus. This same easy-to-use, technology-driven customer experience is expected today in a post-pandemic world. Through his workgroup participation, Tim drives forward the need to create technology standards for all sizes of businesses and all budgets.

Recognizing the challenges facing the restaurant industry, while keeping small to medium-sized businesses in mind, Hughes partners with restaurateurs and their teams to build tailored solutions that satisfy both guest expectations and business goals. National brands, such as BurgerFi, TooJay’s, and Dirty Dough, have benefitted from the HughesON™ portfolio of end-to-end managed network services, cybersecurity, and digital menu boards.
