New Hartford, NY- April 5, 2016 — ParTech, Inc. (PAR), a leading global provider of point-of-sale (POS) and food safety solutions to the restaurant industry and subsidiary of PAR Technology Corporation (NYSE: PAR), announced today that MOD Pizza has opened its 115th store in the U.S. outfitted with PAR’s Brink POS® software and PAR EverServ® 500 terminals. MOD Pizza, the pioneer of fast casual pizza, has grown from 30 to 115 stores in just over one year and selected PAR’s modern, cloud-based POS solution designed not only to scale and grow with the business, but also to easily manage operations across all locations.
PAR’s Brink POS is a cloud-based software solution, a platform ideal for deploying and implementing new locations remotely with minimal operational support, which has saved MOD Pizza time, money and valuable IT resources through remote installation and training. In addition, automatic updates ensure all terminals are running with the most recent business data/information, and the platform features mobile and online ordering to meet customer demands.
“At MOD, our goal is to make great pizzas and salads, while creating an excellent experience for our guests,” said Carole McCluskey, Chief Technology Officer at MOD Pizza. “We found PAR shares our values and its POS solutions enhance the overall guest experience and provide us with real-time, actionable data as we open new locations at an accelerated pace.”
“We are honored that MOD Pizza, an inspiring company that generously gives back to the communities it serves and a leader in fast casual pizza, continues to choose Brink POS software and EverServ terminals to help create great guest experiences,” said Karen Sammon, President and CEO of PAR Technology Corporation. “The deployment at the 115th MOD location continues the tradition of PAR as a leading POS software, hardware and service provider. We are proud to reach this milestone together and look forward to a long-lasting partnership of growth, success and spreading ‘MODness,’ which MOD defines as the ripple effect of simply doing the right thing.”
In 2016, MOD Pizza plans to double its footprint and open locations in six new U.S. markets and the United Kingdom.
