TORONTO and NEW YORK – June 21st, 2018 – TouchBistro iPad POS solution was implemented to improve efficiency at four of the restaurant makeovers in the new FOX show: 24 HOURS TO HELL AND BACK. The first of eight episodes aired on June 13th.
During the filming of the Los Angeles restaurant makeover, the third show in the series, TouchBistro was introduced on camera to the restaurant staff as “one of the most sophisticated POS systems on the Planet.”
The TouchBistro team was on site while the production was filmed to help install the POS and train staff at four of the restaurants within the short 24-hour time frame allowed for each makeover.
“It was amazing working with a celebrity chef of this caliber to help the restaurants on these shows. His insights into the essential elements of a successful restaurant are brilliant,” says Alex Barrotti, founder and CEO of TouchBistro, who was also on site during the filming. “While nothing beats the quality of food for driving restaurant business, top chefs clearly understand that the quality of service and management of the business are key factors in restaurant efficiency and profitability. Advocacy for using a modern POS as part of the makeovers, along with his selection of TouchBistro, reinforces the value we deliver to restaurants.”
The TouchBistro team customized and installed the POS, and trained key staff, in the midst of major and minor changes to the menu, space, and processes – all within the 24 hours the show was filmed. Three months after the Los Angeles filming, the front-of-house manager exclaimed on camera, “The POS system is so great. I really love it!” Fetch Bistro, based in Wichita, is another one of the restaurants where TouchBistro was implemented during the makeover show.
“Now that I’m using TouchBistro at my restaurant, I can’t imagine not having it. TouchBistro has really helped me run my restaurant much better and provide a customer experience that matches the quality of our food,” says Greg Buss, Owner of Fetch Bistro. “Our menu is quite complex, especially during breakfast times, and using TouchBistro’s menu modifiers feature has made our lives so much easier. We’re able to process orders quicker and with less errors. Our servers are now spending less time in the kitchen and more time on the floor tending to the needs of our customers.”
