Simple, Fast and Easy Food, Beverage, and Labor Costing
Those words are not usually associated with figuring out the financials in your restaurant. The reality is calculating Food, Beverage, and Labor cost is a very complex process, which is why 4 years ago we set out to develop the first software tool that makes it easier.
If you know you need more data to increase profits but have tried in the past or are overwhelmed by the process, please check out clickBACON.
Trusted Graphic Design Service
Before your potential customers even taste your food, they are already judging the quality by the looks of your logo, menu, business cards, etc. Your graphic identity is the first taste people will get of your food. If it’s dull, so will be your sales. For example, a well-designed menu encourages people to spend more money, try new things, and has been proven to satisfy them more when the food arrives. We create taste profiles and images in our mind of the food, before we even taste it. If we believe it will be great, it will taste better. The same hold trues for your entire graphic identity. Old and dull or new and fresh!
If you need to freshen up your graphic identity, I highly recommend you reach out to our trusted partners at 99Designs.

All In One Marketing and Loyalty System that’s DONE FOR YOU!
One of the hardest parts of being an Independent Restaurant Owner is finding the time to focus on marketing. Royalty Rewards®️ basically solves that problem by creating not only a loyalty program but a multi-media marketing system as well.
It is completely customized to your restaurant. You choose your program components, then they build an App for you so your customers can sign up for your rewards program and be followed up with by email, text, app notifications, and direct mail.
Everything is tracked and measured and can integrate with the major POS programs. The program surveys your happy customers and generates more positive online reviews – which leads to new customers. They even assign you an expert personal Coach you can call and talk to IN PERSON, who will monitor and track your marketing and report the results to you.
This is a robust, done for you, automated program that will get you results. So much so that they have a 90-day free trial waiting for you when you click the link below.

Credit Card Processing
We have negotiated some of the best rates you will find for your size. They are comparable to rates major multi-units are getting. There is more to processing than just rates, but let’s be real, if they can save you a couple hundred a month it’s worth taking a few minutes to check and see (and that is being modest).
Seamless allows you to process all your payments in one system. They replace the need for multiple legacy providers that businesses today rely on for their payment processing needs. Seamless integrates with all major POS systems.
FreePour provides advanced beverage management to help reduce waster, spilling, over-pouring or theft. They use awesome little scales with bar code scanners so you can scan like 30 bottles per minute.
Watch the video on their website and see what I mean, it’s pretty cool stuff if you have a high-volume bar and want to squeeze every penny out of it.
Awesome Loyalty, Rewards, and Follow Up
So loyalty & rewards programs are great; however, they usually take a lot of time for you to manage them. The reason I love Fivestars is that they have completely automated the entire process. Once a guest joins your rewards program, they will automatically send out emails, text messages, and updates to your guests. Say somebody has not visited in 30 days, no problem, let’s send them a special offer via text, 60, 90 days etc… Even better, are the push notifications that actually show up on their phone. And what if your rewards program could recommend your restaurant to members of other businesses nearby, wouldn’t that be awesome?!
