I care deeply about the future of restaurants.
Expedite is a weekly newsletter highlighting news and big ideas about the future of the restaurant industry.
I’m Kristen, a writer and editor with a restaurant technology speciality. I started the Chefs+Tech newsletter in 2013 to chronicle what I thought was a shift in the San Francisco restaurant scene — connected, tech-savvy diners were leading to increasingly connected and tech-savvy restaurants. After selling the newsletter, I spent several years leading the team at Skift Table, a now-defunct industry news site (and newsletter!) chronicling the restaurant industry.
my latest project, and constantly evolving. I write about technology, tech culture, restaurants, and restaurant tech culture. I write about delivery and ghost kitchens, finances and failures, social media and the future of hospitality.
We all have ideas about the future of restaurant tech — and I want to write about them.
