Meltwich Expands With the Right POS

Meltwich products

Meltwich is a grilled cheese franchise concept that launched in Ontario, Canada, in 2015, crafting inventive comfort food using premium ingredients.   “Meltwich started as a grilled cheese-focused chain but expanded its menu to include various cheese-based offerings, including cheesesteaks, poutine, and burgers with melted cheese,” says Tom Mavrou, COO & President, Meltwich Hospitality.

The Challenge

In addition to innovative menu items, Meltwich is committed to leveraging technology to streamline operations and service. When the brand sought to expand into the U.S., Meltwich knew it needed a strong tech partner. “The primary challenge in the U.S. is the high technology expectations of American consumers,” notes Mavrou. “The operational technology in Canada sometimes lags, especially in terms of compliance issues. In the U.S., the market is more aggressive.”

With a strong track record in streamlining operations and providing businesses with the flexibility they need to thrive, Givex's innovative approach to technology has made it a trusted partner for brands looking to enhance their operational efficiency.

This technology had already streamlined operations across Meltwich's 50+ locations throughout Canada, offering the brand not only operational efficiency but also flexibility in choosing third-party solutions that aligned with their needs.

“Givex has been a valuable partner for us,” says Mavrou. “They listen to our needs and are open to our suggestions. We've used Givex for our point-of-sale (POS) system, which has been very helpful. They've assisted with third-party integration, and they've even developed their own integration. We're utilizing Givex's kiosks, video cameras in the kitchen, and plan to use their online ordering, marketing software, and app in the future. We see Givex as a one-stop shop solution for our business needs.”

The Results

Real-time data access and regularly scheduled reports empowered them to make quick system-wide adjustments. “With Givex, we can work closely with our franchise partners,” notes Mavrou. “We have real-time data at our fingertips to help us determine the right times of day to stay open, optimize our operations, and make informed decisions.”
