In my interactions with Kitopians, I immediately noticed they all share this common DNA of being incredibly dynamic, energized and experienced individuals. Being given the opportunity to work alongside such incredible talent to shape the future of the food consumption experiences is incredibly thrilling! Food is not just a fundamental human necessity, but it’s a passion for so many, including myself. Cloud Kitchen and Food Tech innovations are clear areas of opportunity that are positioned to drive mass impact and I truly believe the unique value Kitopi offers today and what we are poised to do in the future, will revolutionize what the average consumer will come to expect of their food and dining experiences, while continuing to enable and empower food service providers and restaurants to drive growth both affordably and sustainably.
