RFMA 2019 Session Preview - How the Nation’s Favorite Casual-Dining Restaurant Chain Uses Artificial Intelligence to Excel into the Future  

Speaker: Toni Kelly (The Cheesecake Factory Inc.)   
Restaurants spend billions of dollars to manage the complex process of maintaining their facilities. However, many of them still use decades-old, manual processes to analyze their spending and identify financial problems. Without the appropriate technology, brands are missing out on cost-saving opportunities and losing valuable customers. In this session, The Cheesecake Factory’s Associate Director of Development Accounting, Toni Kelly, will discuss how forward-thinking brands can use technology to become more timely, precise and streamlined with their finances. She will explain why using the right technology can help both small and large restaurants to reign in business expenses and push forward into the future.
When: Tuesday, February 12th from 11:15AM – 12:00PM
