Restaurant

Your industry is in constant motion. You need to be able to jump from one campaign to the next, react to seasonal menu changes and roll out new store openings - all while staying under budget and maintaining brand control. We know it’s hard to keep up in this fast-paced environment. We can help.

Expertise

From quick serve and fast casual to family and fine dining, franchisee or corporate owned, we can improve your branded supply chain and marketing efforts by helping you manage it all. Our restaurant-minded client services team takes a consultative approach, working directly with your corporate supply chain and marketing teams to ensure your brand’s message stays consistent from location to location.

Technology

Not only do our people make the difference, so does our technology. Brand Manager facilitates project and task management as well as the creation and storage of digital assets. With Brand Manager, updates can be made quickly and accurately so you always have the latest version within your reach. Our online Brand Store provides store managers and franchisees the ability to easily find, localize and customize branded materials, so they get what they need, when they need it. The Brand Store goes beyond print; it’s multi-channel content for local markets – on demand email, mobile, social, and branded retail merchandise – with the brand control you need.

Store Profiling

Your growing footprint comes with challenges. One of them is that not every store is the same size and shape. There are different window sizes, varying lane counts and multiple configurations. With different structural limitations, a one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t work when finding the right creative for a specific location. With our intelligent store profiling, individual locations are only served up the collateral that works for them.

Sourcing & Procurement

From localized branded promotional items to traditional materials, we can source and procure multi-channel branded materials so you don’t have to. We work with approved supplier partners through our OneSource Certified Supplier Network to get you the quality print and branded merchandise you need at a competitive price.

Cash Management

DataSource handles all supplier payables, inventory, franchise receivables and store level budget reporting allowing for improved cash flow, detailed budgeting and forecasting, increased inventory turns and comprehensive billing for franchise or distributed agents. This frees up cash and valuable resource time in accounting and other asset-related functions as well as puts unprecedented cost controls just a click away.

Reporting & Analytics

We provide reporting that helps measure improvements in service, end user experience, program performance and savings generated by efficiencies. Analytic services range from data processing and maintenance to integrating restaurant POS data with consumer behavior databases to create a unified decisioning tool across the chain. With DataSource, you get the local level data you need to make better business decisions that increase visits, reduce attrition and encourage cross and up sell.
