Laughing Planet Selects PAR Technology’s Cloud-Based Brink POS® Software

Sponsored by Businesswire

(PAR), a leading global provider of point-of-sale (POS) and
solutions to the restaurant and retail industries, announced Laughing
has selected PAR’s cloud-based Brink POS® Software
for all 17 of their locations. Laughing Planet is a quick-service
restaurant company, serving healthy, fresh, nutritious food that is good
for its customers and the environment. ParTech, Inc. is a wholly owned
subsidiary of PAR Technology Corporation (NYSE: PAR).

Laughing Planet offers a variety of delicious vegetarian, vegan, paleo,
gluten-free dishes, such as burritos, veggie bowls, soups, salads and
smoothies. Offering dishes with multiple ingredients, customers often
ask for substitutions and modifications to their orders – something
Laughing Planet’s previous POS solution struggled with. Implementing a
cloud-based solution allowed Laughing Planet to better accommodate their
customers’ requests and track all information in the cloud for better
reporting. Having access to this information will help Laughing Planet
better review trends in their orders, substitution requests, etc., so
they provide the dishes and experience their customers crave.

POSitive Technologies, based in Portland Oregon is a leading provider of
POS systems in the Pacific NW, facilitated the process to identify
software for Laughing Planet that would improve business efficiency and
allow for better reporting.

“So far, the implementation of Brink has helped us streamline our
business operations by quickly having access to sales data from all of
our 17 locations with a few clicks of the computer,” said Vanessa
Parscale, Controller, Laughing Planet. “Our Front-of-House (FOH) staff
have enjoyed the ease of inputting orders that allow them to have better
interactions with our customers.”

“We are very excited to have Laughing Planet join the Brink family,”
said Paul Rubin, Chief Strategy Officer, ParTech, Inc. “With a mission
that focuses on providing the best possible ingredients to their
customers in a fun, welcoming atmosphere, we are honored to be able to
help them achieve their goals of providing their customers with the best
experience possible.”
