ParTech, Inc. (PAR), a leading global provider of point of sale (POS) and workforce efficiency solutions to the restaurant and retail industries, announced that CAVA has selected PAR’s cloud-based Brink POS® Software, EverServ® 8000 point of sale terminals, PAR Tablets, and Kitchen Display System (KDS) for all current 23 locations, with plans to open an additional 10 restaurants in 2017. ParTech, Inc. is a wholly owned subsidiary of PAR Technology Corporation (NYSE: PAR).
The Mediterranean-focused restaurant was founded in 2011 by childhood friends Ted Xenohristos, Ike Grigoropoulos, and Executive Chef Dimitri Moshovitis, who wanted to bring modern, authentic fare to the masses. CAVA features a customizable menu of over 50 ingredients, like their signature Crazy Feta, Border Springs Spicy Lamb Meatballs, and Cauliflower Quinoa Tabbouleh, as well as creative rotating seasonal offerings of juices, soups, and roasted vegetables. CAVA is committed to working with best in class food partners including local farmers and artisan producers.
CAVA was seeking a robust solution that could be easily managed remotely, not only by CAVA, but also by their partners. Also important to CAVA management, was an infrastructure that would support their accelerated growth in new store openings.
“PAR’s Brink software balances reliability with modern infrastructure. The total solution has a sleek design, is quick to deploy, and was able to resolve a lot of challenging problems like California labor laws, which makes it critical for our daily use,” said Josh Patchus, Chief Data Scientist & Director of Technology, CAVA. “Our relationship with Brink has been centered on honest and open communication, which feels more like a budding partnership rather than a typical forced client-contract negotiation.”
“The confidence that CAVA has expressed in selecting PAR’s Brink POS Software and Hardware exemplifies how PAR’s solutions can provide overall business efficiency and be customized to fit the brand,” said Paul Rubin, Senior Vice President & Chief Strategy Officer for ParTech, Inc. “We are honored to be working with such an innovative, modern, and socially responsible brand and look forward to seeing how the company continues to grow this year.”
