Chick-fil-A, Inc., the country’s second largest chicken restaurant chain, announced Thursday that they have renewed their 20-plus year partnership with ParTech, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of PAR Technology Corporation (NYSE: PTC-News), to provide their restaurants with PAR’s industry leading point-of-sale (POS) hardware platform. Additionally, Chick-fil-A will contract with PAR to provide life-cycle support services for all newly purchased equipment, as well as its installed base of PAR POS systems.

We are excited about the direction of PAR’s next-generation PAR POS system.”
