ShiftPixy to Exhibit at Nation’s Restaurant News MUFSO Conference
CEO Scott Absher Speaking on the Future of Delivery
IRVINE, Calif., Sept. 27, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ShiftPixy, Inc. (NASDAQ: PIXY), a disruptive workforce engagement platform provider, will be an exhibitor at the 2018 Nation’s Restaurant News MUFSO event taking place October 1-3 in Dallas, with CEO Scott Absher joining a panel to discuss the future of delivery at 11:15am CDT on October 2.
The MUFSO (Multi-Unit Foodservice Operators) Conference is the flagship event for Nation’s Restaurant News, the leading resource for business intelligence in the foodservice industry. Industry leaders will gather at the Hyatt Regency Reunion in Dallas to discuss best practices and insights on the future of the industry, and ShiftPixy will be located in booth #401.
“I’m honored to participate in one of the industry’s most respected conferences and join a panel with other sector leaders to discuss the future of food delivery,” said Scott Absher, CEO of ShiftPixy. “Traditional third-party delivery platforms charge as much as 30% and force restaurants to sever brand control when the food leaves the kitchen, so we’ll be discussing strategies to implement effective and efficient delivery solutions without any of the headaches many operators currently face.”
The next phase of delivery panel will focus on topics including the most successful methods of delivery to date, what restaurants can gain and lose by delivery, and if the future of delivery is 100% digital. Absher and the other panelists will also look at how restaurants can best compete for consumers in today’s increasingly competitive delivery marketplace that now includes grocery and gas station convenience stores, discount retailers and even shipping companies such as Amazon.
ShiftPixy’s disruptive employment model aims to transform how the restaurant industry hires and manages its workforce. A lot of today’s part-time labor force has left the standard workplace in favor of Gig Economy platforms that provide desired flexibility. Harnessing the Gig Economy concept, ShiftPixy matches employers seeking part-time employees, including delivery drivers, with qualified workers. Unlike others in the Gig Economy, ShiftPixy embraces employer status of the workforce, offering employment-related benefits and protections. ShiftPixy also helps lower delivery costs and enables restaurants to use their own team members to self-deliver their brand intended customer experience, while also alleviating the operators of the compliance, management and insurance issues that are imperative to delivery.
