Fast Food brands bets big on technology

In the last few months, fast food restaurants have done strategic partnership with technology players and IT people to bet big on the technology part.

From players like Burger King, which started selling its whopper online before its official launch in India, to recently teaming up with Swiggy, the food delivery player, to fasten its delivery services, these chains are focusing much more on the technology part of the business.

Likewise, Johnny Rockets, the global restaurant chain, announced the appointment of Harry Yu to the position of Senior Director of Information Technology. Yu has more than twenty years of experience analyzing, developing and implementing the IT infrastructure and operational improvements for a variety of brands.

Harry Yu joins the Johnny Rockets team from Amazon.com, where he was responsible for the Amazon fulfilment centres, managing IT operations, services, governance and budget control. He trained and managed a team of engineers and technicians and was part of the group responsible for launching Amazon's world-class fulfilment centres. Earlier to joining Amazon.com, Yu headed up IT for Fresh Enterprises, the parent company of Baja Fresh Mexican Grill, La Salsa Fresh Mexican Grill and Canyons Burger Company.

"Harry is an important addition to our team," said James Walker, President of Development and Operations at Johnny Rockets.

"Over the last two years, Johnny Rockets has become more information and data driven. We are committed to continue our investment in state-of-the-art technology at our restaurant support centre and in our restaurants in both domestic and international markets. Harry will be instrumental in helping us align our business strategies with our IT strategies and working with us to build new ways to engage our restaurant guests and our stakeholders", he added.

Harry Yu will report to James Walker at Johnny Rockets corporate headquarters in Aliso Viejo, CA.

Meanwhile, the two year old start-up, Sattviko, has also acquired Call A Meal, a Jaipur based delivery start-up to fasten its delivery services
