Whether from the pursuit of low prices or the necessity of replacing broken or outdated components, some restaurant owners end up with a point of sale system that is a hodge-podge of equipment, with software from one vendor, terminals from another, and credit processing from yet a third company. These cobbled-together systems often result in slower running times and a lack of vendor responsibility. When these POS systems malfunction, each vendor can claim the fault lies in another company’s component, leaving the restaurateur with a non-functioning system, lost customers, and mounting repair costs. With a fully integrated POS system, all components work together seamlessly; transactions are fast and accurate, and one vendor is responsible for ensuring the system is functional.

“It’s very social, and everybody likes to talk about their own style and how they do it,” says Atwell. Continue reading “BBQ And Your POS” »
Jack’s a popular quick serve chain based in Alabama knows what community is all about. One year after nearly 200 tornadoes touched down in the Southeast, killing 340 people, Jack’s is helping to raise money and hope for the communities that were affected. The 50 year old chain is participating in the Bo Bikes Bama campaign, in which sports legend Bo Jackson is biking 300 miles across Alabama to raise $1 million for the state’s Governor’s Emergency Relief Fund.
Jack’s is helping Bo Bikes Bama as a corporate cosponsor and through food donations.
