“When My Crown-Rio Foodservice was started, the idea was to bring menu management and customer engagement solutions that were Fortune 500 client-caliber and make them accessible for restaurants with sales volumes of $1M to $5M,” adds Zambrano. “Another thought was that by combining digital marketing, menu management solutions and coaching into one business-growth solution, it would help and appeal to restaurateurs that had previously needed to hire 3 or 4 specialists for the same work. Well, it has hit a sweet spot.”
