Introducing Take-Away with Sam Oches, NRN’s newest podcast


Nation’s Restaurant News is excited to announce the launch of Take-Away with Sam Oches, its latest podcast serving the needs of the U.S. foodservice industry.

Hosted by NRN editor in chief Sam Oches, Take-Away will feature interviews with CEOs and founders of restaurant companies big and small, sharing their stories and ideas for the future but also real, tangible insights for how to innovate in our foodservice future.

“No industry evolves quite as quickly as restaurants — and that was true even before the COVID-19 pandemic,” Oches said. “Restaurant leaders were forced through an intense period of rapid innovation in the past year, inventing the future of food on the fly as they navigated unprecedented barriers to getting their menu items into the hands of loyal guests.”

Each week, Take-Away with Sam Oches will share a candid one-on-one interview along with Oches’ Take-Away — on-the-go observations about how each leader’s strategy fits within the broader foodservice context, and what actionable insights you should be applying to your own business.

Oches, who joined NRN in May, has covered the restaurant industry for over a decade, and previously hosted the podcast “Fast Forward.” Take-Away will tap into his access to leading foodservice innovators who have an outsized role in influencing the way that Americans eat — those leaders who are responsible for guiding this undercurrent of change in the restaurant industry.

“I want to give you an all-access pass to those decision makers. I want to give you a peek behind the curtain as they create that change and leave their fingerprints all over the future of how and what we eat,” Oches said. “I want to show you how the chief executive of a billion-dollar company can still engage directly with store employees, and how a startup entrepreneur can affect change that resonates far beyond their footprint.”
