Lenny's Sub Shops Bundles Wireless Broadband with Point of Sale Gear for Franchisees
GRAPEVINE, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cybera a leading managed service provider, today announced that Lenny's Sub Shops, a current Cybera broadband customer, will utilize Cybera's wireless connectivity solution for future store openings where applicable. Lenny's custom point of sale (POS) solution and Cybera's managed wireless broadband service make up the basic offering of this bundle, which makes it easier for franchisees to get up and running in new restaurant locations. In addition to the wireless upgrade, Lenny's is also implementing a bandwidth upgrade to accommodate the demand it anticipates from new restaurant data traffic.
Any Lenny's franchisee who purchases the Lenny's POS will also receive Cybera managed broadband network access. The POS and Cybera network bundle provides franchisees with the benefit of advanced reporting and sales promotional benefits coupled with the flexibility to connect using wireless broadband technology where traditional wired connectivity options might hamper or complicate a store grand opening. More importantly, the wireless option greatly simplifies the installation process and shortens the time to get new Lenny's sites up and running, which is important for the fast-growing franchisor.
While many restaurants are slowing their pace amid an uncertain economy, Lenny's Franchisor is growing faster than ever. With 165 locations, the quick-serve restaurant chain with the friendly atmosphere and trademark delicious Philly Cheesesteak sandwiches opened about 50 locations in 2007. Hundreds of franchise agreements have already been signed in 21 states around the country.
"Technology is an important piece of our strategy, and the convenience of a wireless connection to our secure corporate network removes barriers to business for the franchisee," said Brent Alvord, Lenny's President. "We had a lot of choices, from carriers to other providers, but no other firm was able to offer us the advantages Cybera does. Specifically, we like the ability to grow the network anywhere in the country in the future, the secure architecture of the network, and the ease of use for our franchisees."
"Like Cybera, Lenny's is growing through innovation. Our wireless broadband solution delivers superior performance, is fully managed, secure and very quick to deploy – all of which Lenny's views as critical to success," said Dan Glennon, senior vice president of marketing and strategy, Cybera.
