The technology deployment will help Noodles & Company optimize revenue opportunities, increase operational visibility, manage labor costs and reduce food waste across the company’s 413 company-owned and 66 franchise restaurants.
Clarifi is the first cloud-based intelligent restaurant operating platform specifically designed to help operators, managers and their teams prepare and perform in the face of the unpredictable. Through its six modules – Foundation, Labor, Inventory, Financials & Cash, Asset Management and Talent Development – Clarifi delivers actionable insights to help managers forecast needs, drive consistent operations, maintain compliance and grow top-line revenue.
