Marco’s Franchising LLC and FoodTec Solutions, Inc. announced their expanding relationship for technology including point-of-sale, delivery, back office, on-line ordering, mobile apps, and various other applications.
The new agreement between Marco’s Franchising LLC and FoodTec provides Marco’s Pizza franchisees, as well as company-owned restaurants, a single technology platform that competes very effectively in the market to drive revenue, control operations, and reduce costs. The FoodTec platform provides Marco’s with cloud-based solutions as well as a resilient POS solution at store level. With the integration of FoodTec’s Target Market, On-Line Ordering, Customer Apps, and Delivery IQ solutions, Marco’s will have a single integrated solution across its entire enterprise of approximately 1000 stores and growing rapidly.
“Over the past several years, FoodTec has demonstrated its commitment to Marco’s Pizza in several hundred stores. After extensive due diligence, we have determined that their latest technology will generate significant benefits to all our operators,” says Jack Butorac, Chairman and CEO of Marco’s Franchising LLC.
“This technology initiative will enable Marco’s Pizza to implement new and constantly changing marketing initiatives as we grow to 1,500 plus stores and beyond. Our goal was to find the “best fit” solution for our stores that would also enable the company to centralize our marketing efforts. We believe that the benefits of a FoodTec’s single-platform and totally integrated solution far exceeded the challenges of a multi-vendor technology approach,” says Rick Stanbridge, VP/Chief Information Officer of Marco’s Franchising LLC.
“By leveraging a total technology solution from a single vendor, Marco’s can focus on their customer service, brand, operations, and marketing strategy,” says Andrew Bounas, CEO of FoodTec Solutions. “We have been committed to Marco’s Pizza and very proud to be selected as the exclusive technology partner for our suite of integrated solutions designed specifically for the pizza and delivery industry. Many of our new innovative solutions that are being released now, and in the future, will enable Marco’s and their franchisees to compete very effectively moving forward.”
