In 2019, technology can be found in nearly every aspect of the restaurant industry. From food-delivery systems such as Grubhub or Uber Eats to the equipment that can keep tabs of power outages and fridge temperatures, many restaurants now need tech gurus to run smoothly. 

On this week's episode of "The Great Food Debate," host Abby Armbruster talked to three people who know about the technology needed to improve the dining experience.

This episode's panelists are:

- Stephan Harman, co-founder of Fusian

- Chris Shirer, founder of JoinMyTable

- Orlando Sprockel, director of information technology for Cameron Mitchell Restaurants
