Two Urban Licks was among the first restaurants to embrace SkilletWorks' procurement app.
During a challenging year that derailed the restaurant industry, Atlanta-based Hugo Posh, LLC was busy working with several well-known restaurant groups to launch its procurement technology SkilletWorks.
 
With a simple scan and click of the button, chefs and managers can process food and liquor orders from their smartphone or tablet.  
 
Created in late 2019 by Hugo Posh, a holding company with interests in technology, hospitality and real estate, SkilletWorks, communicates directly to food and beverage operator's suppliers, creates, and processes orders through a product barcode. 
 
 

a game changer

 
 
“This is a game-changer,” says Hicham Azhari, co-owner of five restaurants in the metro Atlanta area, including Little Alley Steak.  “Not only can I do all of my ordering with my iPhone without manual input, but this app also seamlessly connects with our accounting system, eliminating the need to input inventory receipts and payments into our back-office system.”
 
The success of SkilletWorks has attracted the attention of several national restaurant chains, with Texas-based Twin Peaks and Florida-based cocktail concept, Blue Martini being amongst the first to jump on board. They join a list of highly regarded restaurant groups and independent concepts, including: Little Alley SteakConcentrics RestaurantsTWO urban licksRO Hospitality GroupTable & MainOsteria MattoneCoalition Food and BeverageChar Koren Bar & GrillEstablishmentMaven Restaurant GroupSouth Main KitchenButcher & BrewLapeer Seafood MarketTocayo, and F&H Trading Group which includes multiple Salt Factory Pub locations.  
 
The quick adoption and growth of SkilletWork's customer base has warranted the burgeoning tech company to expand its headcount in sales and operations by 400 percent over the past 12 months and has also furthered the storyline of Atlanta emerging as a competitor to the once tech hotbed of Silicon Valley.
 
SkilletWorks is supporting chefs and the restaurant industry while it gets rolling again, with a free three-month trial to see how the app will improve their procurement challenges. For more information on the app and pricing, visit www.skilletworks.com or call 404.614.0006.
