The National Restaurant Association has launched a new podcast series to help fast-casual operators understand and navigate the big changes affecting today’s restaurant industry.

Called “Fast Casual Insider,” the series focuses on the advice, best practices and experiences of industry experts Geoff Alexander of Lettuce Entertain You’s Wow Bao chain, Firehouse Subs’ Don Fox, LJR Hospitality Group’s Larry Reinstein, David Jones of Blazing Onion Restaurant Group, and Urban Farmhouse’s Kathleen Richardson, among others.

Each guest addresses an important issue, such as raising capital for your concept, dealing with delivery innovation, and how technology is impacting the industry. Says Alexander, “There’s no getting away from [it]; you either have to embrace it or don’t do it.”

Hosted by Jerry White, associate publisher of Plate magazine, the 10-episode podcast series digs for answers to questions on business growth and critical labor issues, like recruitment and retention.

Listen in today, and learn from the experts how to improve your day-to-day operations!

The podcast is available on our website, as well as Spotify and Google Podcasts and Apple Podcasts
