If your food service business is thriving and you’ve reached the point when it’s time to expand, you need a world-class Point of Sale that can expand with you. Sal Khoury and Zaid Ayoub, chief executives of Sajj Food Trucks, can relate. When the Sajj concept of offering fresh and fully customizable Mediterranean food took off in 2012, the restaurant grew to three locations, supplemented by a bustling food truck component. Today, the corporation is looking to open several new locations throughout the Bay Area.
Owners on a similar growth trajectory as Sajj seek to build on their platform of success, widen their customer base, and multiply their sales potential. Upgrading to a simple and powerful Point of Sale is key to that equation. Like you, Sajj Food Trucks sought a Point of Sale built to scale, and with insight from their case study, you’ll learn how they were able to determine just the right match. The free Sajj Food Trucks Case Study highlights:
Which features are most critical in a POS? Every POS system is different. Owners who are opening new locations want simplicity in growth. Sajj Food Trucks opted for a POS system that could be set up quickly and would be easy to replicate at every location. Streamlining management is also a big consideration. The company chose a cloud-based, iPad-based POS that could report data in real time, making it possible for managers throughout the enterprise to use the same backend.
How will you meet higher volumes? To reach more customers and raise profits, you need a POS with efficiency and speed. The Sajj brand serves 1,000 to 2,000 people a day, with food trucks alone reaching 500 people in a span of 3 to 4 hours. “Speed is extremely important and we optimize our process and the line to be able to run through extremely fast,” Ayoub says. It goes without saying that the Point of Sale in a Sajj Food Truck must keep up and keep things moving.
How can it save you money? A POS with analytics puts data in your hands to make wise business decisions. Ayoub relies heavily on data for decisions in terms of hours, product mix, ingredients, and labor forecasting. In addition, a cloud-based feature like Revel’s Always On mode helps Sajj avoid loss of sales due to Internet slowdowns or power outages that on-the-go food trucks may frequently encounter. “It could mean a lot of money if we’re at a food truck outing that has no Internet. Any outing for us can generate sales anywhere between $1000 to $5000.”
