Schlotzsky’s has named MonkeyMedia Software, the number one cloud platform for takeout, delivery, and catering, as its Vendor of the Year.
The Vendor of the Year Award is given to a top-level supplier that not only provides a beneficial product, but also becomes a strategic partner towards Schlotzsky’s overall brand success.
MonkeyMedia Software was recognized with the award for its strategic technological role in revitalizing Schlotzsky’s catering business and increasing system-wide catering sales by 40 percent in 2014. The company’s solution to online, mobile, and phone catering ordering, in addition to the training and order management tools it provides, have all contributed to the growth of Schlotzsky’s catering platform, which is already on pace to surpass last year’s record-breaking sales.
“Our partnership with MonkeyMedia has played in integral role in the success and growth of our catering business,” says Brian Farris, vice president of catering at Schlotzsky’s. “Because of their cutting-edge product, outstanding service, valuable consulting, and training, we were able to achieve the catering success that we always knew was possible. We couldn’t think of a better way to express our appreciation for their diligence, support and dedication than by recognizing them as Schlotzsky’s Vendor of the Year.”
“We’re honored to receive this recognition from Schlotzsky’s,” says Erle Dardick, founder and CEO of MonkeyMedia Software. “It’s an incredible opportunity to work with their passionate teams, and we’re thrilled to share in their success. We look forward to working closely together as their catering business continues to grow.”
