Sponsored by Businesswire

ParTech, Inc. (PAR), a leading global provider of point of sale (POS) solutions to the restaurant and retail industries, is excited to share that Native Foods, one of the very first customers to install Brink POS, has now been operating with PAR’s leading Cloud POS solution in their restaurants for over 10 years. ParTech, Inc. is a wholly owned subsidiary of PAR Technology Corporation (NYSE: PAR).

Founded in 1994 in California, Native Foods is America’s original fast-casual vegan restaurant group. The chain’s 100% yummy menu features chef-crafted, made-from-scratch entrees with global flavors, including BBQ Brisket Burger, Orange Cauliflower, Peri Peri Chicken and Baja Tacos.

Native Foods’ compassionate dining focus extends beyond the menu and includes an emphasis on environmentally friendly business practices. Its unique menu and approach have earned Native Foods a crossover appeal that covers a broad segment of the population, with a majority of customers (75 percent) identifying themselves as non-vegan and non-vegetarian.

“The Brink POS software solution has been an incredibly valuable partner for Native Foods over the past 10 years,” said Scott McDonnell, President, Native Foods. “Their support over the years in developing a cloud-based API solution has opened up many integration doors for Native Foods in the restaurant tech world. These integrations have led to better cost controls, improved ability to reach out to our guests and for them to order our products. The reliability of the cloud-based system has been fantastic compared to prior experience with hardware-based solutions from other providers. The integration and reliability has led to a great experience for our Team Members and helping us inspire the way the world eats.”

“It has been our pleasure and distinct honor to serve Native Foods for the last ten years,” said Paul Rubin, Chief Strategy Officer, ParTech, Inc. “The model of planned obsolescence long employed by the restaurant technology industry has been replaced by a model of continuous innovation, all hosted in the Cloud. Restaurants no longer need to change out their old technology for new technology every 5-7 years. Looking back to ten years ago, it is apparent just how far our solution has evolved and how much new value if offers. We are anxiously looking forward to another ten years of service with Native Foods and to see how much further Brink POS will evolve.”
