Most brands are already on the Givex gift card program and will be rolling out Givex’s POS system and Customer WebSuite (CWS) solutions system-wide. Foodtastic has been making waves this year by their strategic acquisitions of Pita Pit, Second Cup and Milestones Restaurants.

National coffee chain Second Cup was already using Givex for gift cards, loyalty programs and POS across their over 200 locations. When Foodtastic acquired Second Cup earlier this year, they were able to see firsthand how Givex was able to support a large-scale enterprise as a long-term partner.

The Givex Platform gives Foodtastic a solid foundation for the future functionality and solutions they may need.”

GivexPOS enables Foodtastic to have full insight into their business, to better serve its franchisees and customers. One of these early benefits is how GivexPOS is already working with established partners for digital menu boards, online ordering and data repository, giving Foodtastic brands even better data and order accuracy.

“Givex clearly supports its clients, if this past year has been any indication, and we are excited to collaborate with them as we continue to grow and expand across Canada,” said Peter Mammas, President and CEO of Foodtastic. “We’re very excited to be serving the community and glad we can provide a safe and welcoming experience for our customers now and in the future.”
