Webinar: How Restaurants are Adapting to Consumers’ Demands for Safety During COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced restaurants to rethink many of their strategies, including how customers pay for their orders. Whether they’re paying ahead of time on an app or are using other contactless payment technology, one thing is for sure: the interaction between staff and customers when it comes to handling cash or cards has been minimized—or even eliminated altogether. Join Adyen, in partnership with Restaurant Business, on September 17, 2020 at 1 p.m. CT/2 p.m. ET for a webinar to learn more about how restaurants are adapting to this new reality, including how they’re handling payment to ensure customer and staff safety. You’ll hear about what technologies are currently available, how operators can implement them in their restaurants and how touchless service enhances the guest experience. Register now.
