SAN FRANCISCO, CA, UNITED STATES, March 9, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Jessica Valenzuela, CEO and Co-Founder of GoGoGuest, a guest intelligence SaaS platform for restaurants, has been named one of 10 Rising Star award recipients during Hospitality Technology’s Top Women in Restaurant Technology Awards. The event was held during the annual Multi-Unit Restaurant Technology Conference (MURTEC) event in Las Vegas.
For six years, the Top Women in Restaurant Technology Awards has honored intrepid and innovative women in the restaurant industry for advancing the field. Nominees come from every background and represent restaurants and technology vendors, and can be nominated for one of three award categories; Rising Star, Innovator, and Lifetime Achievement.
“Jessica joins a growing number of influential women constantly working to advance the role of women in the restaurant industry,” Anna Wolfe, Senior Editor for Hospitality Technology, said. “These awards showcase their expertise and talents across a number of fields and highlight the growing influence women are commanding in the tech space. Jessica is one of many women doing amazing things for this industry.”
Valenzuela, who received a Rising Star award, was honored for the impact she’s made on the industry in a short amount of time. Her vision of making powerful data-driven solutions that strengthen guest relationships and improve operational efficiencies is empowering restaurants of all sizes to grow their businesses with accurate and actionable insights.
She says the award is validation for years of time and effort spent building and growing the company.
“I’m honored to receive this award for a job that I’m passionate about, that has kept me excited, motivated, and curious for the past 6 years,” Valenzuela said. “I learn daily from my co-founder, our supporting team, and the restaurants we work with. This award highlights the years of developing, learning, and paying attention to every detail that have allowed us to help restaurants better understand their guests and unlock the power of personalization.”
Mark Harvey, Creative Manager for Edley’s Bar-B-Que, nominated Valenzuela for the award. He says her expertise and experience helped the Nashville-based brand during some of its most difficult days.
“During the early days of the pandemic, Jessica and her team helped us use our customer data to build and implement marketing campaigns that put Edley’s front-and-center,” Harvey explained. “Her expertise gave us the confidence to launch new programs and increase revenue while the industry was still struggling. Thanks to her and her team, we kept delighting guests, even when the doors were closed.”
