Getting into the restaurant business wasn’t exactly what Nikos Nyfoudis had in mind when he first moved to London. Originally planning a career in politics, Nikos moved from Greece to the UK’s capital to study in the late 2000s, but having worked in the Greek hospitality sector prior to the move, he immediately noticed a gap in the London market for contemporary, Greek cuisine. It was from this realisation that The Life Goddess was born.
Priding themselves on sourcing ingredients of exceptional quality from the heart of the Mediterranean, The Life Goddess is a Greek delicatessen and restaurant that creates and serves the kind of contemporary Greek cuisine that takes you directly to the azure waters of Greek Isles. Fresh flavours together with slow, gentle cooking techniques that draw out the best of the ingredients have proven to be a winning combination for The Life Goddess as the success of the first venue has now seen Nikos open up a second in the London metro area.
“For a year we worked with another company. The system we were using previously was quite outdated; it was very old-school. We had a touchscreen but it was slow, it was difficult to add and change products, and slow to send orders. When I found out about Revel I thought it sounded really interesting and I still love it to this day. Since moving to Revel, we’ve improved our processes markedly.”
“As a restaurant owner, I really like the backend. It’s very user-friendly both for me and my staff. I’m able to easily change menu items, set stock alarms when inventory is low, make customised receipts and view sales reports. If I want to do a comparison from last year's sales to this year, I don’t have to go back into my accounts to see what we did. I can easily look up the same day last year, or the same day two years ago on my mobile. Revel records everything so I can see exactly what I need quickly and easily.”
After using the system for close to three years, Nikos has been able to see the huge benefits that the system has brought to his business first hand. He’s able to see how his business has performed and grown year-on-year, and is able to keep profitability at it’s highest level via Revel’s comprehensive suite of features.

“Because I travel a lot, Revel makes me feel confident that the restaurant is running properly when I’m not there. Whenever a restaurant owner asks us about our opinion of Revel, we always say that we are very, very happy with it."
