US-based restaurant brand franchisor Galardi Group has selected software developer Tango to accelerate its restaurant expansion strategy.

As part of this partnership, Galardi will implement Tango’s predictive analytics and its transactions and lease solutions. This will support the company’s growth, manage its retail location strategy and address the increased complexity in the site selection process.

Galardi Group real estate director Laurie New said: “Galardi has bold growth plans, but we currently lack the data and insights we need to develop a comprehensive expansion strategy that would support our business goals.

“I worked with Tango in the past and know their solutions will help us understand which locations are suitable for expansion, as well as identify new opportunities for our franchisees. With Tango, we can streamline our efforts into one platform to improve accuracy and achieve our goals.”

Tango noted that its solutions will help the restaurant group address the changing demands of today’s consumers through AI-driven predictive analytics that inform location strategy and execution.

Tango president and CEO Pranav Tyagi said: “From omnichannel experiences to enhanced technology, rapid shifts in dining behaviours and expectations have redefined the restaurant industry.

“We are excited to work with the Galardi Group to help position their business to quickly adapt to new consumer behaviours and ensure their real estate strategy results in long-term success for their franchisees.”
