PLAYA VISTA, Calif, JUNE 28, 2018
Appetize, the modern point-of-sale (POS) company transforming foodservice and retail payment technology for major venues at scale, announced today that it has been selected by the Philadelphia Eagles as the point of sale provider for Lincoln Financial Field. The cloud-based foodservice POS product suite will be deployed across the entire stadium and power all food and beverage related transactions. With more than 40 percent of professional sporting venues on Appetize’s platform, the company is rapidly replacing legacy point of sale systems nationwide as venues recognize the importance of a cloud and mobile-based platform.
Lincoln Financial Field is taking Appetize’s omni-channel platform and deploying almost every product across the stadium. More than 500 Android and iOS-based Appetize terminals are being installed at concession stands and bars. Stadium management will also deploy Appetize’s business intelligence and inventory platform to monitor depletion rates and eliminate waste, ensuring the most popular products are stocked in the appropriate stands to increase bottom line revenue.
“In our continued efforts to stay ahead of the curve and create a world-class experience at Lincoln Financial Field, we believe Appetize’s advanced technology will take us to the next level,” said Frank Gumienny, Senior Vice President, Chief Financial Officer, Philadelphia Eagles. “Appetize is revolutionizing the customer experience in the sports and entertainment industry. We are excited about their future, our partnership and integrating their innovative technology into our venue.”
Appetize has been delivering faster, easier-to-use payment technology to enterprise businesses including arenas, stadiums, convention centers, theme parks, campuses, restaurants and retail chain stores since 2011.
