Compeat is Restaurant Management System of Choice Among Top 100 Independents

As we are always saying, Compeat has the most amazing customers!  Restaurant Business  just published a list of the Top 100 Independents and are delighted to see how many of our customers made the list.

As stated in the article, this is no easy feat.  Restaurants in this year’s Top 100 Independents ranking brought in about the same in food and beverage revenues as they did the prior two years—$1.8 billion. The number may be the same, but the operating atmosphere definitely was not. Independents faced challenges in labor, real estate and more, all while still competing for consumers’ dollars. Those winning in the tough, competitive market found the key to staying afloat was delivering on the promise of an experience.

Thirty-eight Compeat customers are part of this winning list.  We are beaming with joy that Tao Las Vegas, Carmine’s, Tao Downtown, Old Ebbitt Grill, Lavo Italian Restaurant & Nightclub, Bryant Park Grill & Café, Gibsons Bar and Steakhouse, and Smith & Wollensky are all among the Top 10.

Compeat FaviconIn the list are some of the busiest restaurants in the nation. All are utilizing Compeat’s restaurant management software to reduce costs, increase control, and improve efficiency. Every day they purchase inventory, prepare recipes, and serve hundreds or even thousands of customers – accounting for a very large number of transactions. Volume like this requires the support of a solid restaurant management and accounting system, and these top grossing restaurants rely on Compeat as their solution.

TAO Restaurant and Nightclub, the number one Grossing Restaurant on the list, relies on Compeat in all fourteen of their locations. Compeat has become very important in our day-to-day operational tasks including: recipe maintenance, managing food preparation, and compiling profit and loss statements. I especially like how all information is ‘real-time’ and in one common database, so managers are able to immediately see and react to any issues,” says John Watson, IT Director for TAO.
