For decades, Happy Joe’s Pizza & Ice Cream has dedicated itself to creating happy memories with creatively delicious pizzas. To continue this long-standing commitment, the brand is adding ORCA’s restaurant inventory management software, enabling Happy Joe’s to continue to provide high-quality food to its customers systemwide.
Currently being tested in six stores, the ORCA software automates the inventory and ordering process and integrates with both Happy Joe’s point-of-sale (POS) system and Sysco, the brand’s recipes/grocery provider. This will enable the company to see in real-time the difference in food costs at each location — variables that change weekly – and help identify potential food cost issues within the stores.
Due to its early successes, the ORCA software will be rolled out systemwide throughout the first quarter of 2024.
“The ORCA system is the whale that kills the sharks,” says Tom Sacco, Chief Happiness Officer, CEO and President. “If there’s anything we can do to ensure we’re creating happy memories for our guests, then we’re on it. This technology will help us continue to ensure our pizzas are consistently made with high-quality ingredients – which means more smiling faces at Happy Joe’s!”
