Podcast: Raj Suri, Founder & CEO of Presto
by Kristi Marvin on 2022-08-31 at 7:33am

This week, we speak with Raj Suri, Founder and CEO of Presto. Presto entered into a $634 million combination agreement with Ventoux CCM Acquisition Corp. (NASDAQ:VTAQ) in November 2021.

If you’ve ordered a fast-food meal using a smart touch screen or talking to a voice AI recently, there’s a good chance Presto made that order happen. The company has developed both hardware and software that serve to automate quick-service ordering and it counts some of America’s biggest fast-food chains among its clients.

Raj talks about how Presto plans to expand within its clients’ chains and what the future of automated restaurants looks like. He also speaks to how both Presto and Ventoux have ridden out the difficult market conditions and why Presto could serve as a hedge stock against inflation once the deal closes.

Give it a listen
