Cabo Bob's, a popular restaurant with multiple locations in Texas, struggled to manage its growing catering business using traditional pen-and-paper methods. As the company expanded, the need for a more efficient system became evident.
That's when Cabo Bob's decided to implement CaterZen's catering software solution that helped streamline their catering operations and boost their growth.
The Problem: Inefficient Catering Operations Hindering Growth
Before adopting CaterZen, Cabo Bob's relied on a pen-and-paper system for catering orders. This outdated method was inefficient and error-prone, making it challenging to manage the increasing volume of orders, especially as the business expanded into new cities. As catering accounted for 25-30% of Cabo Bob's revenue, it was crucial to find a better way to manage this aspect of the business.
