New Hartford, NY- September 20, 2018 – ParTech, Inc. (PAR), a leading global provider of point of sale (POS) and workforce efficiency solutions to the restaurant and retail industries, announced Charleys Philly Steaks has selected PAR’s cloud-based Brink POS® Software for all 594 domestic locations. The deployment of the Brink solution to their network of restaurants is in progress and will be completed in 2019. ParTech, Inc. is a wholly owned subsidiary of PAR Technology Corporation (NYSE: PAR).
In 1986, Charleys redefined the Philly Cheesesteak. Today, locations across 46 states and 17 countries serve up the #1 Cheesesteak in the World®, made with fresh, quality ingredients, grilled-to-order the Charleys way.
Charleys’ previous POS solution was not designed to support an enterprise. The technical infrastructure, business processes, and product were insufficient for the size of the organization. Charleys needed improvements to modernize the overall technical ecosystem, manage risk, improve infrastructure, and achieve a more comprehensive understanding of their data.
“To achieve a modern, stable, robust, and enterprise grade technology platform, we chose Brink and the market knowledge and expertise of the PAR organization,” said Matthew Son, Vice President of Information Systems, Charleys Philly Steaks. “The PAR team’s knowledge of the software and attention to detail proved the organization was like an expert craftsman. The Brink solution was technically the best and most cost effective when compared to other offerings. Brink has been a fantastic partner in building a robust and modern POS solution.”
With Brink in place, speed of service has improved; leading to higher sales, and the modern technology platform is allowing Charleys to implement enterprise wide online ordering, a mobile application, loyalty program, and delivery in a unified and profitable manner. Time trials of order entry were 40% faster than before and implementations at stores that were being restricted by POS speed improved by 10-15% from faster order entry during busy times.
“We are pleased to have Charleys join the Brink family,” said Paul Rubin, Chief Strategy Officer, ParTech, Inc. “Brink is the ideal cloud solution for a fast growing and robust organization like Charleys and we are eager to help Charleys achieve their goals and offer their guests the best restaurant experience possible.”
