DataCandy continues to strengthen its positioning as a gift card and loyalty program leader across the restaurant industry with the announcement of a new strategic partnership with Kahala Brands and Texas-based Focus POS Systems. DataCandy continuously evaluates opportunities to integrate its proven technology with leading point of sale (POS) systems. The DataCandy/Focus POS Systems partnership will enable restaurants of any size across North America to integrate both platforms seamlessly. Through this strategic alignment, current and future restaurants utilizing Focus POS Systems will have access to a turnkey, end-to-end solution encompassing POS, gift card, and loyalty program technology. Ginger Sushi Boutique® and Thai Express®, both existing Focus POS System users and two of Kahala Brands fastest growing U.S. quick-service restaurant franchises, are the first to capitalize on DataCandys newest alliance. Kahala Brands selected DataCandy as its strategic partner to rollout a gift card and loyalty program for the two brands as well as to leverage the companys industry track record to elevate customer engagement initiatives.
