Appetize Reports Record Growth
Five months after closing its $20 million Series B, Appetize, a POS provider, replaced more than 3,800 legacy POS solutions in April.
The company also reports 100% year-over-year growth. This growth, the company says, 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 Appetize POS, self-service kiosks, handheld and tableside device and mobile ordering.
New clients include:
- Los Angeles Football Club (LAFC) and The Fields, Los Angeles
- Como Park Zoo and Conservatory, Saint Paul, Minn.
- Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, Hilbert Circle Theatre, Indianapolis
- Mayo Civic Center, Rochester, Minn.
- Memphis Zoo, Memphis, Tenn.
- Kentucky Horse Park, Lexington, Ky.
Appetize has also introduced enhanced self-serve, restaurant and retail functionality throughout its cloud-based platform. Appetize recently deployed version 2 of Interact, its self-serve 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 upsell opportunities. 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.
