Virtual brands are entering uncharted waters

Tech Check: What began as an easy way to boost revenues has become a big, sophisticated business. Here are three questions that will define the future of delivery-only concepts.

Voice bots were a highlight at the annual tech event, which saw record turnout amid a challenging time for restaurants.

Inflation is pinching people earning less than $50,000, but higher-income customers have held strong, executives said Thursday.

The new Brinker International CEO wants to invest in tools that can help the business today, not in five years.

Chefs and managers, on the other hand, are less likely to be replaced by robots, according to a new survey.

The casual-dining chain will open 75 restaurants in South and Southeast Asia over the next 10 years under what it said was its largest development agreement ever.

It will separate its point-of-sale and ATM businesses, concluding a strategic review and ending the possibility of a sale.

The agency said it would act to protect gig workers for services like DoorDash and Uber, including investigating wage fixing and other illegal practices.

The inducement grants incentivize Hart to boost the chain’s share price, which has lost more than half of its value this year.

The outlet in American Dream mall in New Jersey will be the first physical location for the fast-growing virtual brand.
