David Chang Talks Tech in Food

August 25, 2015

At SXSW Interactive, restauranteur and author David Chang spoke with Matt Buchanan about his experience combining tech and dining.

Tech has changed everything, but David Chang believes its value for dining should be ease for experimentation. He also talked about collecting customer data to enhance the customer’s dining experience. He discussed his new app Maple, which is a “lunchbox on demand” of the best food delivered to your door. Logistics, meal options and price were fine-tuned in a trial and error tech process. David, the self proclaimed “Normavore”, loves normal […]
