Includes Debut of Hospitality Job Board

ATLANTA (July 5, 2016) – Keeping up with the latest technological advances is one of the key challenges facing Atlanta’s food and beverage industry, especially when it comes to staffing. To help hospitality workers understand those challenges and advances, Nosh Talks, the networking organization for the city’s restaurant industry, is hosting the Restaurant NEXT Technology & Staffing Panel. This can’t-miss event takes place Monday, July 25, at Monday Night Brewing (670 Trabert Ave. NW) from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Nosh Talks is teaming up with SPLIT, the platform that allows users to pay restaurant and bar bills from their mobile devices, to host the event, which includes light bites and signature beers from Monday Night Brewing. Available online through Eventbrite, tickets are $15 for industry members and $35 for non-industry guests.

“Coming from both a restaurant and restaurant technology background, I cannot overstate how important technology is in the hospitality space,” says Nosh Talks founder Karen Pagano. “There is technology for everything, from front of house to back and all the way to staffing. Questions arise about what technology is the most important, what is my neighbor using and how is it working for them. Those are some of the questions we plan to answer.”

Nosh Talks is also partnering with Culinary Agents, a professional networking and job matching website for the food, beverage and hospitality industry, to launch an Atlanta job board on the Nosh Talks website. The page will make its debut during the Restaurant NEXT event.

“Culinary Agents is bringing the best practices from some of the top restaurateurs and chefs across the country to address the talent-sourcing challenges unique to Atlanta,” says Alice Cheng, founder and CEO. “Coming together as a community to discuss and address obstacles is a great way to discover new technologies that can or already work well.”

The Restaurant NEXT discussion features the following panelists:

"Technology helps us see the performance of our restaurants in a snapshot so we can make real-time adjustments,” says Lewis. “It’s a valuable tool in providing sincere hospitality to our guests, and I look forward to a lively discussion about how all of us in the Atlanta hospitality community can best put it to work."

The event is sponsored by SPLIT, CohnReznick, Culinary Agents, Comcast Business, Nestle Waters, Talent Served and the Georgia Restaurant Association.
