Cool Stuff From the NRA Show

We are having a great time at the NRA Show in Chicago.

Below is a picture of the booth with the food service robot.  The cost is 25K, and it can be trained to do one function. It was cool and just imagine where this tech will be in a couple of years.

Below is a picture of me on the left, Keith Jones, Executive Chef for Honey Smoked Salmon in the middle and Erik Tversland my business partner at OpsAnalitica.  I worked for Keith in 1994 and 95 at the Metropolitan Club in Denver.  He is one of the coolest guys I’ve ever worked for in the industry.  Wonderful to see him.

Below is a video of a new Budweiser merchandising cooler.  It projects the images from the bottom of the door. It is WiFi connected and will even alert a repair person if it breaks down.  Apparently in a market test it increased sales by 11%.

I've been in the restaurant industry for most of my adult life. I have a BSBA from University of Denver Hotel Restaurant school and an MBA from the same. When I wasn't working in restaurants I was either doing stand-up comedy, for 10 years, or large enterprise software consulting. I'm currently the Managing Director of OpsAnalitica and our Inspector platform was originally conceived when I worked for one of the largest sandwich franchisors in the country.
