Serving up legendary made-from-scratch food for almost 30 years, this fast casual brand has over 600 locations and is a prominent global restaurant chain.

Their service model needed to adjust by integrating a tableside ordering system to meet the growing needs of todayā€™s restaurant-goers. The team launched CAKE MenuPad to integrate their legacy POS with handheld mobile tablets, enabling the restaurant to provide their staff and guests with a seamless ordering and payment experience at the table.

Since they are also working with a reduced number of staff members due to an industry-wide labor shortage, they needed a solution to maximize staff efficiency, enhance the speed of service, improve revenue, and provide a safe and secure checkout experience for their guests.
