Join Total Food Service and L. Sashin & Associates on June 22nd at 9:00am ET for Virtual Breakfast Session #19: Crypto Made Less Cryptic
The restaurant, catering, bar and hospitality business has always been hard, but with work, a good concept and efficient systems it was a doable, profitable and a good way to make a living. Then came COVID-19. We’ve been dealing with the pandemic for 2+ years now. We’ve dealt with lockdowns, altered our menus to cope with changing dining habits, supply shortages and price hikes.
To draw in new diners, restaurants have used all sorts of alternative currencies and payment methods such as retail barter exchanges, coupon books, Groupon and Local Flavor. But what about the 400 lb. gorilla that many think will soon be 800 lbs.? Cryptocurrency is most popular with young adults. 31% of those between the age of 18-29 have used it. Compare that with 21% of those aged 30-49, 8% 50-64 and 3% of 65+. Percentages may sound unimpressive, but that’s 34,000,000+ Americans with crypto-experience and the numbers keep growing.
So, what’s the hang-up? Why aren’t you accepting cryptocurrency at your restaurant or business? Lack of knowledge? Volatility? Too much work ? Not necessarily so anymore!
Our VBS #19 panel of “Crypto- Mavens” and foodservice vets will make the case of why and how Cryptocurrency can and should accepted as any other currency. So, spend an hour with us and see how the VBS# 19 panel will make sense (and cents)of what seems complicated and make “Crypto Less Cryptic”.
