What is London’s Vic North all about? The answer is pretty obvious, whether you’re visiting their website or stepping into their Newport establishment in Pembrokeshire.
Food. They’re all about the food and they’ll be the first to tell you. Real food. Homemade food made from the the freshest local ingredients. Not only do they feed their patrons with their creatively unique lunches and desserts, they also encourage guests to develop their own cooking skills by offering workshops to promote a local and self-sufficient lifestyle.
Their neighbourhood and local community are a big part of who they are and why they do what they do. Nestled in an inspiringly beautiful countryside landscape, the community is teeming with artists seeking original, healthy food options. Surrounded by excellent producers, farmers and fisherman, the spot is fast becoming a foodie haven.
How does Lightspeed fit into the picture?
According to owner Vicky North, to whom the experience of her employees is just as important as that of her guests, the improved communication between staff members and speed of service is invaluable. Customers are served quickly and without issue, while the staff get to focus on their personal passions for food and cooking offering great service and having a great time at work, rather than logistical problems. For Vicky, the real value of the software comes from the daily reports and labour reports she can generate. This data is extremely helpful when it comes to running her business and managing her employees — information that would otherwise be more difficult and time consuming to calculate.
There’s little doubt that in today’s world, which is growing increasingly concerned with healthy eating and sustainability, Vic North has a bright future. Lightspeed will be there to help them focus on what really matters — growing her business.
