For independent grocers and the wholesalers that serve them
I am about to open a small (3,000 sq.ft. of retail space + 3,000 storage and prep) specialty food market. I am looking for a sophisticated POS + inventory system. I don't need anything custom designed. Being a start-up we can adjust our way of doing business to suit the way the software is designed to work. I don't need the most expensive system in the world; but I am willing to spend some money for useful features. We probably will start out with 4 stations, expandable to 6.
I am opening up next door to our own successful 30 seat restaurant and I am hoping for some operational synergies.
Thank you everyone for your suggestions. I will be looking into all these systems. Yes, Chris I am in the Northeast (Long Island, NY to be exact) and I will contact Dumac; although they are pretty far from me.
One thing I forgot to mention was that we will be building a small food court-like eating counter near the back of the market. It may be too much to ask, but ideally the software would be able to deal with a quick service type food ordering.
