The Well-Run Restaurant Customers Demand.

Hughes Managed Network Solutions delivers the security, performance, and capacity you need to connect all of your restaurant locations, fully leverage the cloud, and handle all of the back-office functions to run your franchise efficiently. Through ActiveQoS, a Hughes WAN optimization technology, broadband connections are now able to provide enterprise grade performance! The result is faster Wi-Fi and wide-area networking in a single, highly secure, managed solution at an affordable price point. For the Fast Casual restaurant, that means your network will be powerful enough to support emerging restaurant trends, such as using real-time analytics to gain insights into diner preferences and habits; or using technology to reduce the time it takes to get great food into the hands of your guests!

Mobility, Productivity and Meals

Simply deploying Wi-Fi applications over broadband connections can hobble critical business traffic, such as POS transactions and VoIP calls, during periods of network congestion. HughesON Wi-Fi Solutions intelligently manages the network so restaurants may effectively combine Guest Wi-Fi and enterprise networking into a single, highly secure solution that provides end-to-end priority for business applications and a great Wi-Fi experience for diners and employees alike. That means, guests waiting for a table can surf the Web while diners post meal pictures on social media, all without impacting the productivity of staff using the network to send orders to the kitchen, deliver great food and even better service to diners.

Engage, Interact and Inform

For Fast Casual restaurants, digital menu boards and signage are key to engaging customers, providing flexible on-the-spot meal coupons, and promoting specials. With HughesON Digital Media Solutions, you can enhance your customer’s experience with dynamic rich media that promotes your franchise, provides instant menu or ordering information, and integrates social media or custom apps for even greater interactivity. And HughesON Digital Media Solutions can also be used to continuously train and inform staff (e.g., describe latest LTOs, share customer service strategies, or communicate brand requirements.)
