We have seen the industry change.

Technology has fundamentally altered the way the hospitality industry engages with their customers. With experience in both front-of-house and back-of-house, our team saw how delivery apps, review sites, and social media swept into the industry without any input from within the industry itself.

Traditionally, restaurants and their customers have had a tightly coupled relationship governed by their neighborhood and immediate community alone.

For centuries, the industry has catered to customers and rightly built a culture hyper-focused on the dining experience itself: Good food. Good atmosphere. Good people. Voilà!

But, seemingly overnight it all changed, blindsiding restaurant owners and their staff.

The internet created a new universe for how customers engage with hospitality businesses consequently requiring a new skill set far outside the scope of regular operations. To this day, most restaurants are still playing catch-up.

Our mission is to rebalance the playing field. We'll meet you where you are, start with the basics, and grow with you.

The Joalia team acutely understands the challenges, opportunities, and, most importantly, how to get ahead of the B.S., so restaurants can go back to doing what they do best.
