Restaurant operators should take the time to learn about mobile payments and to not shy away from embracing them in the near future.
Louisville, KY (PRWEB) September 13, 2013
This year’s Fast Casual Executive Summit (Oct. 13-15 in New Orleans) will cut through the confusion surrounding mobile payments with a special session, “Mobile Payments 101.” This overview of different payment platforms and how they work will help restaurant operators decide how to approach this emerging technology, and which platforms might be right for them.
Attendees will also hear from two restaurant operators who have rolled out successful platforms: Matt Pyles, operations manager at Barbacoa Mexican Grill, and Chet Kenisell, president of Sugar On Top Corporation, owner of Gigi's Cupcakes Georgetown and Cedar Park.
“Credit cards used to be a mysterious piece of plastic, and look how common they are today,” Pyles said. “Mobile payments are no different. Restaurant operators should take the time to learn about mobile payments and to not shy away from embracing them in the near future.”
Geoff Murtaugh, VP of technical services for Micros, and Gordon Saussy, consulting executive for Isis Mobile Commerce will also be on the panel to answer technical questions.
