Restaurant CIOs

You probably don’t need a full time CIO.

Why pay for one?



Restaurant CIOs “CIO as a Service” (CIOaaS) provides your company with one of the top hospitality CIOs as a psudo member of your executive team, but on a fractional basis.  While this is unique in itself, your company will also benefit from the expert advice of the other top restaurant CIOs, as your company faces major decisions or challenges. 

Since Restaurant CIOs adds the most value with a long-term relationship, we want to be there when you need us most.  In some cases, it only means a few hours a week; in others, it is several days a month.  We can be flexible to your needs and even change our allocation of time over the course of our professional relationship.

Get in touch with us to set up a consultation, or use the contact form to inquire whether our services are right for you.


Areas of Practice

Strategic Alignment

The merging of technology and business has never been more intense.  Technology should be considered in almost every business decision you make.  Restaurant CIOs knows how to align these two traditionally-distinct practices to make them holistic and most effective.

POINT Of SALE systems

One of the most important decisions you will make in your restaurant is choosing the right POS system.  If the timing isn't right for a new choice, then maximizing the current POS system is critical.  Not only is this the transaction engine of your business, but the source of most of information you will use to effectively measure your business.  Restaurant CIOs specializes in this critical technology and the ever-increasing systems that connect to it.

Information Risk Management

The risks of data breach are increasing and the consequences of failure could be devastating to your business.  Data protection and compliance goes beyond payment systems to systems where guest and staff information is stored. Restaurant CIOs can help minimize these risks with triage and compliance programs.

Business INtelligence 

Your company now has access to vast amounts of information.  Combining, comparing, and deeply analyzing this information is a big undertaking.  You want to see information that elicits action that can benefit your business. Restaurant CIOs can expertly link multiple data sources and help define what might best impact areas like marketing campaigns, food costs, or  staff engagement.

Product Delivery

Your business runs on multiple technology systems. These systems need to be evaluated, sourced, customized, and implemented.  Restaurant CIOs has implemented 100's of technology systems and has proven methods to ensure the success of delivering these systems, whether bought or developed in-house.


While not typically the area most talked about, the information infrastructure is at the core of everything your restaurants do; from data protection, to processing payments, to delivering reports. Restaurant CIOs knows the importance of these systems and understands the newer technologies that can likely even reduce costs over systems just a few years old.
