Boston, MA (PRWEB) October 30, 2008
CrunchTime! Information Systems, a global leader in enterprise restaurant back office solutions, and Fresh City, operators of Fresh City Restaurants, marked their ten year anniversary as business partners.
Fresh City, a growing fast-casual concept, is recognized and respected for their innovative menu and commitment to fresh healthy foods. Ten years ago the company was operating a small group of restaurants throughout the Northeast and was solely focused on operating the restaurants and building the brand. At the time, they identified the need to implement a stable and scalable IT infrastructure that would support them in executing their business plans without compromise.
At that critical juncture Bruce and Larry Reinstein, the founders of Fresh City turned to CrunchTime! Information Systems, a technology company that provided a 100% web-based enterprise back office solution. "The solution that CrunchTime! was offering was developed by restaurant people for restaurant people. They worked very hard to understand our business and the challenges we faced. They provided a solution that enabled us to centralize management and simplify in-store operations while providing critical data to our management team. It has been incredible watching the CrunchTime! product mature and develop over the past 10 years, and we recognize that they have been an important part of our business at every step of the way. We are ideally positioned as we begin the next phase of growth for our company" said Larry Reinstein, the CEO at Fresh City.
CrunchTime! offers an integrated suite of tools that allow multi-unit restaurant companies to effectively manage their restaurant & supply chain operations, drive food and labor cost savings, and gain incisive perspective on enterprise-wide performance. The web-based, fully hosted solution provides centralized control of all elements of restaurant operations in real-time.
"We appreciate the confidence that the team at Fresh City placed in us ten years ago" said Bill Bellissimo, President and Founder of CrunchTime! Information Systems. "They were the first restaurant chain in the industry to implement a web-based back office solution. We have worked very hard to meet the changing needs of their business over the past ten years, and we are fully committed to ten more years of innovation and success. They are terrific business partners."
