Little more than a year ago, food and fun seemed to be the future of bricks-and-mortar retail. But today, chains like Punch Bowl Social are in bankruptcy. What happens when social gathering becomes public enemy number one? For Joshua Rossmeisl, Founder & CEO of AMP Up1 Hospitality, a year of distancing gave his team the time to develop a new concept from the ground up. Ke’nekt will feature analog and digital games, cabana seating, and digital ordering through a dedicated app. They expect the first location to open before the end of the year, with more to come.

James Cook is the director of retail research in the Americas for JLL.
