RTI to Participate in Checkers/Rally’s 2016 Convention
RTIconnect Back-Office will be featured at Checkers/Rally’s annual meeting.
ATLANTA — In continued support of franchise operators and the Checkers/Rally’s brands, RTI will be an exhibitor at the 2016 Checkers/Rally’s National Convention September 19–22 at the Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center in Kissimmee, Fla.
The annual convention includes franchisees, team members, suppliers, and operators for four days of networking, breakout sessions, planning, and awards. As both the corporate and franchisee back-office solution for the Tampa, Fla.,-based chain, RTIconnect provides many tools for Checkers/Rally’s restaurants.
“I couldn’t imagine running this business without RTIconnect,” reports Craig Leonard, a Checkers franchisee owner in Virginia Beach, Va. “Some people look at it as a cost. They should throw that word out of their vocabulary. It’s not a cost. This is an investment that pays a huge dividend,” said Leonard.
“We always look forward to spending time with the Checkers/Rally’s operators and corporate team,” said Greg Waddell, Senior Vice President for RTI. “The convention provides excellent opportunities for building relationships, learning more about the needs of the operators and the brand, and highlighting new RTIconnect features designed to help operators run more profitable restaurants.”
