Adapt360's SQL and .Net development team over-delivers

Garden Fresh Restaurant Corp., parent company to Souplantation and Sweet Tomatoes restaurants was in need of an online ordering system that could process online orders for a roll-out of side-dish items that Souplantation and Sweet Tomatoes would be selling during the holiday season.

At the request of Garden Fresh, Adapt360 developed a custom web application that allowed customers to review side-dish items with a description and photo of each item and enter, modify or cancel orders. While users were placing the order, the order was displaced in the “availability window” with quantity of items and amount as they would add or remove additional items to the order.

“Garden Fresh is a fantastic company to work with,” says Paul Smith, President of Adapt360. “They know how, and where to apply technology to improve the customer experience.”

In February 2012, Garden Fresh rolled out online ordering for their new Souplantation and Sweet Tomatoes Express concepts. Express concepts differ from the known all-you-care-to-eat experience and are a take-out version of the healthy restaurant concept. The Express concepts transitioned from fax-in orders to online ordering for to-go business. With an average of 15 orders per day per location, the online ordering has been a success for Garden Fresh. Garden Fresh plans on implementing online ordering at all Express concepts moving forward.

“Adapt360’s SQL and .Net development team over-delivers” Says Gerry Shukert, Technology Director of IT Systems Development at Garden Fresh. “They understand our needs, develop solid technical solutions and have strong follow-up support. We look forward to continuing our work with Adapt360 for future online ordering systems as we expand our restaurants and our retail merchandise and to-go products”
