While visiting Pensacola, FL locals and tourists alike have to stop by one of the hottest barbecue spots in town. Guests are greeted by the smokey smell of barbecue from Hot Spot’s famous slow cooker in a fun, cozy atmosphere. When Jim initially opened Hot Spot BBQ he knew that there was no time to waste. Since opening back in 2010 his vision of catering to the panhandle has come to life receiving multiple awards such as InWeekly’s Best of the Coast Best BBQ Winner (2013-2018) and TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence (2015-2019). Having a POS system that produces consistent results is one of the means to make that happen. Jim’s pleased with how OrderCounter’s multiple features helps him do what he needs to do to keep him customers coming back hungry and leaving happy.
The Only Thing that Should be Slow is How the Food is Prepared- Not the Service
Jim agrees that slow is never the key to launching a successful restaurant. When his restaurant opens, he is greeted by a wave hungry guests eager to try his mouth-watering fall-off-the-bone ribs. In order to keep up with the rush of customers, Jim knew he needed a dependable Hybrid POS to send the correct tickets to the kitchen that’ll help speed up the serving process. Since going with OrderCounter, they were pleasantly surprised with the seamless checkout process and how it worked for their multiple ordering platforms such as their popular takeout, delivery, and catering services.

Whether it’s during the holidays or after, gift cards are a great way to help maintain revenue as well as protecting your restaurant from bounced checks, stolen credit cards and your overall POS system.
