Chapter Chair: Kathy Sy, Director of IT, Polly’s Inc
Kathy is the Director of Information Technology for Polly’s Inc, which operates Polly’s Pies Restaurants and KFCs of Polly’s. Her ultimate purpose is to help create efficiency through technology, and implementing new technology to assist with sales increase and company growth.
Her experience in the restaurant industry is approaching 30 years: in both quick-service, as well as in full-service restaurants. 12 years in restaurant operations, and 17 years in Restaurant IT. The combination of her operational and technical knowledge definitely helps her accomplish IT projects for restaurants; thinking with both the operators and technologist in mind.
With the growing needs of the economy and the needs of our restaurant’s guests, Kathy often enjoys learning about and looks forward to implementing new technologies that will benefit us in the restaurant industry.
Kathy enjoys the cold weather and snow, which probably doesn’t make sense since she grew up in Hawaii. Although she loves living in Southern California, Hawaii will always be the place where she calls home. Aloha!
