NRN editor wraps up the ICR Conference

Hear from managing editor Leigh Anne Zinsmeister on the annual conference


The ICR Conference was this week and the NRN editors were on hand to cover it all.  Restaurant brands from Shake Shack to BurgerFi to Red Robin all presented during the conference and we got deeper insight into what these companies have planned for 2023. Here are some of the highlights:

  • Digital menu boards are popping up everywhere;
  • Kiosks will be even an bigger deal than they already are;
  • Restaurants will return to growth mode this year, whether through a five-point plan or adding more units; and
  • There is optimism in the industry.
