Edwin Mills by Equator
Teddy Bedjakian opened restaurant and bar, Edwin Mills by Equator, in 2005 in beautiful Old Town Pasadena. Teddy sought out to conquer excellence in ambiance, service, and food. And his prior Point of Sale was holding him back in achieving his business goals. So, in addition to remodeling his whole restaurant in 2014 he also partnered with Revel.
The Revel Challenge
Automatic Menu Changes
With Revel, Teddy could automate menu changes and implement dynamic pricing to help drive traffic. Specifically, Revel's 'Happy Hour' feature allows him to program what Happy Hour should be and for what days.
Enhanced Kitchen Management
Revel's kitchen management functionality has organized their back of house and ensures that the food gets to the customer's table, quickly and accurately.
The Revel Solution
From martini night to wine night, Edwin Mills by Equator deploys a number of strategic pricing strategies to keep customers coming through the door every day of the week. And with Revel, the staff can keep track of the discounts and make sure inventory is accounted for, "At 4 p.m. the button shows up right away, so now the staff knows it's happy hour time. I mean it is one of my favorite features on the Revel System, the ability to program my POS system and allow what happy hour should be and when," said Teddy.
By centralizing the management of Edwin Mills by Equator, Teddy can rest assured that his restaurant and bar is taken care of. As a restaurant owner, Teddy wears many hats, "You're a business owner, you're the dishwasher, the bar back. I'm thankful for Revel to make sure I'm on top and not missing anything." "Revel System as cloud-based, means I could do menu changes, check on my sales, check on my staff sales, all from home," said Teddy.
As far as the backend goes it's perfect because it's helping me out with knowing which employee is good at sales, what they are pushing, what they're not pushing, and see an itemized report on every employee's sales.
