Software Helps Restaurant Fill 80 Shifts in 10 Minutes


Snack Shack at One Pacific in Long Beach, N.Y., has signed on with the Deputy platform to optimize scheduling and workforce management tasks.

The new owners of the seafood-focused restaurant turned to the workforce management software to ensure a seamless grand opening and easy ongoing control of staffing, training and expenses.

Snack Shack operated for many years as a seasonal ice cream and snack shop until David Zelinger and Mark Goldsmith took over earlier this year with a vision of turning the small space into a full-service restaurant with a casual beachfront vibe. Zelinger and Goldsmith upgraded the gas, electric and equipment, as well as staff management and scheduling systems with Deputy.

Like many small businesses, Zelinger and Goldsmith needed a solution that was intuitive and easy to use with a friendly interface and great onboarding tools. “With our grand opening approaching quickly, we knew we wanted an easy way to communicate and schedule workers,” said Zelinger, co-owner. “Functionality and affordability were two of our key search criteria. Deputy is the only solution we found that met all of our needs. Now scheduling is a breeze — for our grand opening, we filled 80 shifts in less than ten minutes.”

Deputy’s cloud-based and intuitive platform features auto-scheduling, time clock and attendance, tasking, workplace communication, performance management, and other capabilities that enable business owners to save both time and money while simplifying the process of managing employees.

“Our employees love using Deputy,” said Goldsmith. “They can select open shifts, qualify for new jobs with training, easily swap shifts with co-workers and more. Plus, Deputy’s level of responsiveness and expertise from the support team has been the best I’ve ever seen personally or professionally.”
