CRILS (Canadian Restaurant Investment & Leadership Summit) – join us for their 2022 cross-country tour, Nov 3 in Toronto and Nov 10 in Vancouver!

From the current “state of the nation” stats and trends to Hot Topics for the future, CRILS offers you a wealth of knowledge on restaurant industry strategies for today and tomorrow.

For the first half of 2022, Canada’s food service and drinking establishments reported sales growing at an average rate of 42% YoY each month (source : Statistics Canada). For the first time since the start of the pandemic, in August the Canadian hotel industry’s three key performance indicators – Occupancy, ADR and RevPAR - all showed increases compared to the same month in 2019 (source : STR). The bottom line is that Canada’s restaurant & hospitality industries are back. Yet along with that resurgence and the opportunities it represents, new challenges have also arrived. There are still-developing societal and behavioural changes stemming from the pandemic. There are significant increases in inflation around the world. And geopolitical events have had major impacts on people and supply chains, both in the short and long term. Succeeding in today’s restaurant environment requires correctly answering more complex questions than ever.

For instance, while there are significant YoY increases, how much is from inflation vs genuine sales increases, and how should that shape restaurant investment? With the move to hybrid or remote work, what formats and locations best fit the resulting changes in consumer traffic? How will the ever-increasing impacts of climate change affect guest expectations in both menu and experience? How do you most effectively leverage technology to build relationships with consumers who are still adjusting to a post-pandemic world?

Successfully navigating the restaurant & hospitality landscape in 2022 and beyond requires developing and maintaining an understanding of the latest in consumer behaviour and industry trends, challenges and opportunities. On November 3 in Toronto and November 10 in Vancouver, the Canadian Restaurant Investment & Leadership Summit will provide you with an unparalleled opportunity to do just that, giving you the chance to learn from hospitality leaders about all these topics and more.
