Lightspeed Commerce Inc. is honored to welcome new outstanding retail, hospitality and golf customers from all over the globe to its roster. Powering the world’s best businesses, Lightspeed is the unified POS and payments platform for ambitious entrepreneurs to accelerate growth, provide the best customer experiences and become a go-to destination in their space.

We’re thrilled to welcome these businesses—among others—to Lightspeed, and proud of the tremendous positive impact they have on their communities. 

Retail Innovators 

  • With six shops across the United Kingdom using Lightspeed Retail, Bath House are on a mission to make their artisan fragrances and natural skincare as sustainable as possible. 
  • The Spice and Tea Exchange, a gourmet spice and herb retailer, is all about bringing elevated flavors to consumers. They’ve chosen Lightspeed’s flagship retail offering in over 80 locations across the United States. 
  • Women’s designer clothing retailer Soleamour sources unique, difficult to find brands in their two locations in Maine. They recently adopted Lightspeed’s flagship omnichannel retail solution with e-commerce. 
  • For three generations (since 1899, to be exact) Seroogy’s has helped make special occasions extra delicious with their homemade, hand-dipped chocolates. Based in Wisconsin, they’re now using Lightspeed’s flagship retail offering. 

Hospitality Heroes

  • They have two locations in Victoria and four more in Queensland, but Australia’s Kickon Group is just getting started. Their goal? To “create an environment in which [their] people feel proud and inspired to deliver amazing experiences.” They recently signed up with Lightspeed Restaurant. 
  • March First Brewing prefers to lead where others follow, making it “delightfully unpredictable.” All their ciders, beers and spirits are crafted in Cincinnati, Ohio. Cheers! 
  • We’re proud to welcome Chef Teo Paul’s four businesses. Michelin-recommended Union restaurant and Côte de Bœuf are both located along Ossington Avenue in Toronto. They’re part of a broader group of high-end dining venues that includes Heart’s Tavern in Kimberley and the forthcoming Le Tambour Tavern in Hamilton. In all locations, Chef Paul chose Lightspeed Restaurant to support expansion plans throughout Ontario.

Golf Trendsetters

  • In Clearwater, Florida, Cove Cay Golf Course is open every day of the week to offer a spectacular experience. And they’re now using Lightspeed Retail and Lightspeed Restaurant to run their golf academy, restaurant, pro shop and course. 
  • Reef Capital owns and operates two luxurious golf courses: the Black Desert Resort in Utah and Cutalong at Lake Anna, in Virginia. Expect to see more of the Black Desert Resort in a new tournament, the Black Desert Championship, which is set to begin next year.

“Our customers are community champions and innovators,” says JP Chauvet, CEO at Lightspeed. “They’re incredible. They’re building successful businesses in challenging economic times – all this, in the wake of a global pandemic that shifted so many consumer habits. We’re honored to be part of their journey.”
