Home-Grown Industries of Georgia, Inc. (Home-Grown), the franchisor of Mellow Mushroom restaurants, announces that it will deploy Radiant's Aloha TableService POS solution in all new and renovated Mellow Mushroom locations. The solution will help the company streamline the flow of critical information between franchisees and the corporate office, while improving POS reliability and ease of use for restaurant operators.
"As a franchise operator who now works for the corporate office, I have gained unique insight into the full breadth of Radiant's capabilities," says Johnny Hudgins, director of operations for Home-Grown Industries. "With the newly installed centralized data management tools, Home-Grown now has the ability to pull system-wide data that will assist us in making more informed decisions."
The complete solution for Mellow Mushroom franchisees includes the Aloha TableService POS, Enterprise.com above-store reporting and centralized data management. Home-Grown selected the solution based on guidance and feedback from its franchisee community, which identified the systemÃƒ.Ã.¬Ã..s intuitive features, reliability and reporting capabilities as stand-out benefits.
The reporting system coupled with a detailed audit program allows each operator to have full knowledge of his restaurant's operation. The online components, such as Enterprise.com, create a platform for monitoring multiple restaurants from a remote location.
Radiant channel partner Hospitality Control Solutions is providing and installing the Radiant solution in all of the Mellow Mushroom locations. To date, the channel partner has completed installations in 51 restaurants.
Home-Grown and its franchisees will use the new system to increase consistency in the customer experience and gain access to more robust, timely information. Through the Aloha centralized data management module, the corporate office will be able to launch new items and make pricing changes faster across all locations. The reporting capabilities available in Enterprise.com also will provide consolidated sales and cost information to help the company more effectively measure trends, food costs, and the effects of new items and marketing promotions on sales.
