Mother-daughter duo Kathy Cropp and Emily Tomlinson have always been avid readers. So, in 2015 when they opened Me’s burgers and brews in Danville, Virginia, both women knew they wanted to tie their love of books into their new gourmet burger and craft beer restaurant. They decided to decorate with antique typewriters, name their burgers after authors, and feature each author’s book cover on their famous wall of authors. According to Kathy, “Our burgers, which are named after some of our favorite authors, change with the seasons along with the rest of the menu. As new burgers are named, new authors and a corresponding book cover decorates our wall.”
Changing their menu quarterly keeps things current and fresh and requires them to have an easy to use POS that can keep up with their needs. As their business began taking off, Me’s burgers and brews quickly realized their current POS system wasn’t adequate for their changing needs. They knew they needed a new system to run their business better and began a search. Kathy and Emily’s local banker introduced them to talech and they were instantly impressed. Kathy recalls, “We felt talech had all of the things that we were looking for. Plus, we had a local representative introduced to talech by their local banker that supported us in the Elavon processing. I was thrilled that talech was Apple iPad based for service and checkout at the tables and offered solid reporting of business metrics. And the staff loves that talech’s POS is easy to use.”
Now that they’ve been using the system for the last few “chapters” of their business, they both agree that they would recommend talech to other fellow restaurant owners. “We highly recommend talech. One of things that we are most impressed by is the fact that they are always adding depth to the product and continually want to improve and become an even better product.”
talech’s iPad POS has successfully helped Kathy and Emily run their business more effectively while they focus on what they do best: making delicious burgers and serving up specialty brews! Because as Virginia Woolf wrote in A Room of One’s Own, “One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.”
