Because of Rocket Fizz’s rapid expansion through franchise locations, co-owner Richard Shane needed a web-based POS that was scalable, flexible, and could be set up easily and quickly. Opening a new store is one of the most stressful times for a new store owner, and Shane wanted to avoid the delays caused by glitches like a problematic POS.


Today, each new Rocket Fizz franchise is set up with Lightspeed from day one, and franchisees are learning quickly. “It used to take five days to set up a POS at a new location. Now it takes three or four. That 20-40% of time saved is a massive improvement.” For Fizz franchisees, the option to choose their operating system was a major benefit to using a cloud-based system. Lightspeed’s scalable system is helping Shane’s candy shop rocket to national success.
