QSR’s along with most other businesses plan to bounce back from effects of the pandemic like, the labor shortage, changing customer trends, and a general push towards digitization this year. Because technology has played such a crucial role in helping restaurants adapt, restaurateurs should look to implement new tech that could potentially help their restaurant or QSR run more efficiently.
Here are 4 types of technology that restaurants will leverage to save time and money.
Digital Menu Boards
In the QSR/Restaurant world, presentation is everything and with drive-thrus trending in popularity, QSR’s across the nation are investing in digital menu boards. Digital menu boards give restaurateurs a better way to update their menu, and more important, do so nationwide with the click of a button.
New POS System
POS Systems have come a long way from the cash registers of the past. Now, modern POS’s are based on efficiency and being simple to operate, while giving state of the art insights into customer habits and automating ordering based on real time inventory numbers.
AI Powered Voice Recognition
Recently, companies like Checker’s/Rally’s have implemented AI powered voice recognition in their drive-thrus, meaning that instead of giving your order to a human, your order is now being taken by an AI software who can’t show up to work late, or make a mistake inputting your order.

Robot Food Prep
While it’s unlikely that a majority of QSR’s will adopt any type of robot for food prep this year, this technology is definitely taking on and being implemented more often. For instance, CUSITech teams installed Miso Robotics product “Flippy ” in multiple White Castle locations.
