Although hospitality, entertainment, and restaurants are different sectors, there are considerable overlaps, one of them being the fact that they are multi-location. After spending the beginning of his career in hospitality and entertainment, Vincent Szwajkowski moved to fast-casual dining and is now the CMO of Blaze Pizza. Vincent recently spoke on a panel at FSTEC about how CMOs today are using technology. In this episode, we hear more about Blaze, its footprint, and how it stands out in the saturated pizza market. We talk about the progression of Blaze's online ordering, which was expedited by the pandemic, and the challenges this presented them with. Blaze recently launched its own app, and Vincent stresses the importance of being ready for an undertaking of this size. It is not something that should be taken lightly because it will put considerable strain on everyone. Our conversation also touches on third-party apps and their role, what still has to happen at Blaze, and some advice from Vincent for aspiring CMO's. Tune in to hear it all!
