Pizzeria Venti Rolls out Tablets for Tableside Ordering

VentiCorp, a Georgia-based franchisor of Pizzeria Venti restaurants is rolling out Presto tablets developed by Silicon Valley technology company E la Carte, Inc. The rapidly expanding Italian casual dining chain also has plans to deploy the Presto tablets at their La Cucina di Venti and PV Piccolo Express foodservice concepts during the 4th quarter of this year.

The iPad-like touch screen tablets allow guests to browse detailed menus with mouthwatering pictures, place orders, split checks, make payments, and play interactive games – all from the comfort of their restaurant seats without having to wait.  

"We've found that E la Carte's Presto tablets significantly enhance our guest satisfaction, and therefore improve our brand as a restaurant that prides itself on both authentic Italian cuisine and superior service," says Joseph Gallina, vice president of Operations for Pizzeria Venti.

"We've been waiting for a technology like this to come along and found that the MIT team of E la Carte were the ideal partners to meet our needs. For our guests, no more waiting is a wonderful thing.”
The Presto tablet has been proven to assist in the efficiency and profitability of deployed restaurants.  It has shown an increase in sales by 10% by capitalizing on diners’ urges through impulse orders, up sales, and personalized recommendations. Wait times have been reduced by an average of 7 minutes per party, allowing restaurants to seat more guests on a busy evening by streamlining operations.
After testing the revolutionary technology in their Mountain View, California location, the restaurant group was sure they had found what they were looking for.
