New Hartford, NY- June 6, 2019 – ParTech, Inc. (PAR), a leading global provider of point-of-sale (POS) and solutions to the restaurant and retail industries, announced Laughing Planet has selected PAR’s cloud-based Brink POS® Software for all 17 of their locations. Laughing Planet is a quick-service restaurant company, serving healthy, fresh, nutritious food that is good for its customers and the environment. ParTech, Inc. is a wholly owned subsidiary of PAR Technology Corporation (NYSE: PAR).
Laughing Planet offers a variety of delicious vegetarian, vegan, paleo, gluten-free dishes, such as burritos, veggie bowls, soups, salads and smoothies. Offering dishes with multiple ingredients, customers often ask for substitutions and modifications to their orders – something Laughing Planet’s previous POS solution struggled with. Implementing a cloud-based solution allowed Laughing Planet to better accommodate their customers’ requests and track all information in the cloud for better reporting. Having access to this information will help Laughing Planet better review trends in their orders, substitution requests, etc., so they provide the dishes and experience their customers crave.
POSitive Technologies, based in Portland Oregon is a leading provider of POS systems in the Pacific NW, facilitated the process to identify software for Laughing Planet that would improve business efficiency and allow for better reporting.
“So far, the implementation of Brink has helped us streamline our business operations by quickly having access to sales data from all of our 17 locations with a few clicks of the computer”, said Vanessa Parscale, Controller, Laughing Planet. “Our Front-of-House (FOH) staff have enjoyed the ease of inputting orders that allow them to have better interactions with our customers.”
“We are very excited to have Laughing Planet join the Brink family,” said Paul Rubin, Chief Strategy Officer, ParTech, Inc. “With a mission that focuses on providing the best possible ingredients to their customers in a fun, welcoming atmosphere, we are honored to be able to help them achieve their goals of providing their customers with the best experience possible.”
