With years of experience in the hospitality industry, the co-owners are well aware of the factors that can contribute to a restaurant’s demise. “There are so many steps along the way where a restaurant can fail,” says Sexton, such as cutting corners by using frozen ingredients, or neglecting the importance of quality service. Union Republic’s team hand-picks ingredients from local vendors, ensuring that freshness and originality are served-up on every plate. Their desire to provide great service is what led them to choose the Lightspeed Restaurant POS solution.
Lightspeed enables me to have a real-time handle on what’s going on in my restaurant.

Updating the floorplan on the go
The Union Republic team appreciates the simple, customizable floorplan of the Lightspeed Restaurant POS when things get a bit busy in the dining room. Servers can easily move or combine tables on the interface, enabling them to quickly turn a table of four into a table of ten on short notice – something that isn’t possible with standard floorplans. Staff can also add or cancel reservations from anywhere in the restaurant with the touch of a button.
