TacoTime Franchise Owners Benefit From Streamlined Operating Systems
From point of sale to back-office functions such as inventory control, payroll, scheduling and more, a single system makes operations simple and efficient
No business owner wants to deal with stacks of paperwork, but multiple computer screens and programs can be just as daunting. That’s why TacoTime® franchise owners are so happy with their single-source setup which combines accounting, POS, payroll and inventory into one system.
“What has been created for franchise owners’ use is a system that incorporate POS — or point of sale — technology that is connected with accounting, inventory, payroll and other functions,” explains John Wuycheck, Senior Vice President of Franchise Development. “The franchise owner is able to perform his or her operational tasks from a single platform with many different capabilities vs. having to have a spreadsheet open here, and a screen open there, and then trying to reconcile it all.”
Simplicity leads to efficiency for Mexican food franchise
By being able to track important bottom-line items such as inventory used, or employee hours scheduled in one spot, a TacoTime Mexican food franchise owner can zoom out for an overview of business expenses to compare against projections.
“If all the information an owner needs is at his or her fingertips, then he or she is in a much better position to assess how the business is doing, and make changes where needed,” Wuycheck says. “It is also very useful for basic operational needs such as inventory control, so if it becomes apparent that fresh produce is being used quickly due to high customer volume, for example, extra produce can be quickly and easily ordered.”
Less time away from customers
Another benefit of a centralized, unified operational system is that it allows for franchise owners to avoid spending hours in the back office laboring over paperwork. Instead, they can be in the restaurant, mentoring employees on good business practices and also engaging with customers.
“A TacoTime franchise is a people business,” Wuycheck says. “Owners relish the opportunity to talk with customers, to find out what they like about the food – and what they’d like to see. Then they are able to pass those insights along to the corporate R&D team, for instance, if a new recipe idea has been proposed. They’d much rather be doing that than sitting in the back rewriting the shift schedule, and the operational system TacoTime provides helps make that possible.”
