Happy Belly Curbside Kitchen, an Atlanta-based food truck, has implemented the NCR Silver mobile point-of-sale (POS) to help grow its “farm to street” business.
The rollout across its four trucks is intended to provide Happy Belly – voted by health site,
as one of the top 10 healthiest food trucks in America – an advanced mobile POS functionality such as sales tracking and inventory management.
Since 2012, Happy Belly has served fresh, organic and local cuisine to Atlanta-area customers from its lime-green food trucks. Since then, Happy Belly has made a name for itself in the natural foods scene by educating families about the benefits of eating healthier, sourcing natural foods locally when possible, and donating 5 percent of profits to the Boys & Girls Club of Atlanta to fight childhood obesity.
Before deciding to implement NCR Silver, Happy Belly owners Joe and Amie Bruno realized they needed robust reporting tools to track catering sales, which now account for about 50 percent of the company’s revenue.
“On the traditional food truck side, the faster we get the order, the faster our customers receive their food,” Joe Bruno said. “Silver is fast. But we also needed advanced reporting features, where Silver excels.”
Another Atlanta-based food truck, Tex’s Tacos, recommended NCR Silver to Happy Belly because of the mobile POS’ unmatched consolidated reporting features that enable users to track sales and cash for all mobile locations, Bruno said.
The Brunos have already benefitted from NCR Silver’s reporting features that break out sales by “event,” such as a rehearsal dinner, rather than each order. They also use NCR Silver for daily activity, such as running reports on food truck park events.
“In the past, at events where one person was paying the bill, we would have to log in at the end and manually add up all the charges,” Amy Bruno said. “This was arduous and time consuming, but NCR Silver automates that entire process, which is huge for us.”
