Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) February 13, 2014
MonkeyMedia Software ended 2013 with the addition of more than 1,000 new restaurant locations in its growing roster of multi-unit restaurant catering clients. The company is now excited to announce an agreement with Garbanzo Mediterranean Grill® for MonkeyMedia Software™ and MMS Catering Institute™ services to help the Denver-based restaurant concept grow its off-premise business.
“Our team has been working diligently with the executive leadership from Garbanzo to ensure their off-premise program delivers a five-star customer experience and is scalable for future growth. We are honored to be working with them and look forward to helping their catering team excel at feeding their customers where they live, work and play,” said Erle Dardick, CEO of MonkeyMedia Software and Founder of the MMS Catering Institute.
Through the agreement, Garbanzo will deploy MonkeyCatering™, MonkeyOnlineOrdering™ and MonkeyLeadTracker™ as software, ordering, catering CRM, and reporting platforms throughout its system of nearly 30 restaurant locations. Prior to the software implementation, Garbanzo will receive restaurant catering strategy and education workshops, and certification, through the MMS Catering Institute as part of the partnership agreement.
“We are very happy to partner with MonkeyMedia Software to enhance our catering program,” said Alon Mor, Garbanzo Founder, President and CEO. “The new digital platforms will optimize our catering program on all levels, including operations, sales and customer experience, as well as further develop our sales staff with the MMS Catering institute services. We are very excited about these new applications and setting up our catering program for success.”
As a complement to the software and strategy services, catering team members from Garbanzo will receive copies of Dardick's book, "Get Catering and Grow Sales!™ A Strategic Perspective for The Multi-Unit Restaurant Executive." The book, published in 2011, serves as the foundation of MonkeyMedia Software's Get Catering and Grow Sales!™ manifesto and The Five Pillars of Restaurant Catering.
