Toast Restaurant POS, an all-in-one restaurant technology platform, announced that it partnered with Pieology Pizzeria, fast casual pizza chain, to serve as the company’s point-of-sale (POS) platform. The agreement includes Pieology’s nearly 130 restaurants currently in operation as well as future locations, which is expected to reach more than 200 units by 2017.
“Pieology was in need of a technology platform that served as the basis for everything happening in our restaurants,” said Rich Long, director of IT for Pieology Pizzeria. “We needed a system that streamlined orders, was the right fit for our franchisees, increased our capacity for online orders and above all else — helped us best serve our customers. With its cloud-based functionality, flexible hardware options, and customer-focused support, Toast is helping us meet our business and growth goals, both immediate and long-term.”
The cloud-based Toast platform enables restaurant operators to run multi-location franchises on a single platform. Sales, labor and inventory data are available in real-time and are easily accessible from anywhere. Additionally, menu updates can be made almost instantly across the entire network of locations, or at a single location offering special menu items. Toast’s built-in online ordering platform sends web and mobile orders directly to the kitchen, reducing errors and increasing efficiency.
