British restaurant intelligence platform Yumpingo has appointed two senior team members to spearhead U.S. operations following the Company’s recent debut in the U.S. Dan Dillon joins Yumpingo as Vice President of Operations U.S., and Adam Sternberg joins as Vice President of U.S. Sales.
Mr. Dillon brings 20+ years of restaurant industry experience having worked in numerous operations and marketing roles at TGI Friday’s, leading the culinary team and implementing innovative initiatives like Endless Appetizers that drove traffic and positive brand recognition for the iconic restaurant chain. In his new role with Yumpingo, Mr. Dillon is responsible for growing the Company in the U.S. market, and leading overall operations and marketing efforts.
Mr. Sternberg joins Yumpingo with extensive experience in sales and hospitality, having spent more than 31 years working in the food and beverage industry with brands such as Fourth, MGM Resorts International, Avero and others. In the role of Vice President of U.S. Sales for Yumpingo, Mr. Sternberg will lead all sales efforts to penetrate the billion-dollar U.S. restaurant industry.
“We are moving full speed ahead to deliver U.S. restaurant brands the same level of certainty of guest satisfaction at brand, store, shift, server and dish level as our UK customers,” said Gary Goodman, Founder and CEO of Yumpingo. “I am thrilled Dan and Adam have joined our founding U.S. team. Solving an industry wide problem requires our company to have a 360-degree view of our market and together they bring a unique combination of technology and operator experience, managing the historical challenges of running restaurant brands with a lack of customer data to help drive performance, product and marketing firsthand.”
Yumpingo recently announced an engagement with TGI Friday’s in the U.S. following a successful partnership in the U.K. The Company’s technology is already used by many of the UK’s largest and most innovative restaurant businesses, including Mitchells & Butlers, Jamie’s Italian, Bill’s and Wahaca. Guests complete a one minute review at the end of the experience, either on Yumpingo devices, which replace traditional check presenters, or on their own device. This allows partners access to over 7,500 live in-moment food and service reviews per location, per month giving restaurants complete certainty of how to optimize customer satisfaction across brands at location, shift, server and dish level.
