Runza Taps CrunchTime! Back Office System
Runza® National Corp is implementing CrunchTime!’s back office solution. The new system will allow Runza to control food and labor costs by managing restaurant inventory, staffing, and all dimensions of their supply chain, while making operations more consistent. The company expects that real-time reporting on key performance indicators (KPIs) and integrated dashboards will deliver sales and cost analytics that support timely decision making across the enterprise.
Runza Restaurants is a regional Midwest chain of 82 quick-serve restaurants, in operation since 1949. The signature menu item, the Runza Sandwich, is made of ground beef, cabbage, onion and spices baked inside made-from-scratch bread dough. Additionally, the menu boasts hamburgers, double-dipped onion rings, crinkle cut French fries, chicken sandwiches, homemade chili, soups, salads and shakes.
“Similar to our sourcing of only the best ingredients, we performed an exhaustive evaluation of back-office software solutions specializing in the restaurant industry. We were committed to choosing a company and product that matched our “best in industry” niche, and the clear choice was CrunchTime! Information Systems. Their staff’s unique experience in the restaurant business, and intuitive software solution allowed our committee to unanimously support our partnership with CrunchTime! Information Systems,” said Donald Everett, Jr., President of Runza® Restaurants.
