Jamba Juice using tech to help manage costs of doing business
Jamba Juice uses a variety of technologies to help manage the business, and although getting franchisees on board can be a challenge, it's imperative, said Susan Taylor, director of franchise operations at Jamba Juice.
She spoke with Jeff Bradbury of Hughes during the 2017 Fast Casual Executive Summit about how she inspires franchisees to embrace technology in order to better manage costs, including labor and inventory.
"It's a continuous learning" she said. "It's never a point where anybody says, 'I'm good and I don't need to learn anything else.'"
The 2018 Summit is Oct. 9-11 in Seattle. Registration is now open.
