It’s been an exciting quarter at Appetize, from our latest self-service, restaurant and retail updates to logging our largest month and quarter to date – we have certainly been busy! It’s only been five months since we closed our $20 million Series B, and between the latest deployments and consistent success, it’s been a lucrative five months for the company. Today, we’re thrilled to announce 100% year over year growth and 60% quarter over quarter growth since Q1! And, we have replaced over 3,800 legacy Point of Sale solutions in April alone!
This growth was driven by new deployments within restaurant and retail outlets at business dining campuses, education campuses, zoos, convention centers, chains, theme parks, and entertainment arenas. All of which are now utilizing an array of our POS, self-service kiosks, handheld and table-side devices, and mobile ordering. See some of our notable new clients below:
- Los Angeles Football Club (LAFC) and The Fields, Los Angeles, CA
- Como Park Zoo and Conservatory, Saint Paul, MN
- Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, Hilbert Circle Theatre, Indianapolis, IN
- Mayo Civic Center, Rochester, MN
- Memphis Zoo, Memphis, TN
- Kentucky Horse Park, Lexington, KY
“We’ve had a tremendous start to 2018, deploying some of our most sophisticated productions to date,” said Max Roper, our Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer. “Our approach of delivering a modern, yet robust solution to the enterprise and mid-market continues to be validated by the pace at which we are replacing legacy POS players.”
We’ve also introduced enhanced self-servicee, restaurant and retail functionality throughout our cloud-based platform:
Interact for Self-Service
We have recently deployed version 2 of Interact, our self-service software, after seeing a 21% increase in average order size across several thousand kiosks already in the field. The new version offers customers an intuitive, branded ordering experience, in addition to item and cart up-sell opportunities.
Our recently upgraded restaurant functionality gives managers and wait staff alike the ability to more quickly manage floor plan, tables and checks, and introduces conversational ordering.
Brand new checkout functionality for retail environments creates a faster interaction for cashiers and guests, in addition to customized promotional functionality.
These product updates are now included in both Android and iOS versions of Appetize, and will support the most complex quick-serve, fine dining, and retail businesses.
