Welcome to Nashville, the music capital of the country! To give you some background of this eclectic city, let’s first start with what made it the popular destination it is today, the music. Nashville picked up the nickname ‘Music City’ due to its long and exciting musical history. And it doesn’t stop there, from the food to the sports, Nashville has everything for just about everyone. You can spend days exploring every corner of the city, but to make it easier, we’ve rounded up some of the best places you should be sure to stop at next time you visit this city in Tennessee. We’ll dive into how each destination provides positive guest experiences through their modernized Point of Sale systems to keep guests happy, satisfied, and already planning trips to visit again.
One of the most iconic destinations in Nashville is The Grand Ole Opry at the Ryman Auditorium. The Grand Ole Opry became Nashville’s top attraction with its rich history and ability to create timeless experiences for audiences of all ages. To give some background, The Opry started as a radio broadcast in 1925 and has evolved into a live entertainment powerhouse. It got the nicknames “Home of American Music” and “Country’s Most Famous Stage” and brings in hundreds of thousands of people around the world to see the show live.
In addition to the music and entertainment at The Opry, you will also find the Appetize Point of Sale product suite. We hold the highest standard of bringing the easiest, most convenient method of payment and ordering for the masses at The Opry. You’ll find 62 Point of Sale terminals, iOS handheld devices for processing payments throughout the venue, and even our Kitchen Display Systems for seamless back of house functionality, so guests get their orders fast!
Nashville isn’t just known for the music, the sports teams are also a key component of what makes the city magnetic. Home to the Nashville Predators hockey team, Bridgestone Arena is another staples to the city that you should be sure to add to your list. Opening in December 1996 and bringing in more than 13 million guests since, Bridgestone Arena not only hosts the Nashville hockey team, but also tons of concerts, musical productions, and sporting events.
We are excited to be the modern Point of Sale system provider for Bridgestone Arena. Our kiosks provide fans and guests with the ability to make and process their orders all on their own, cutting down wait times and getting Preds fans back in their seats for the action. Below is the full product suite we have at the arena. Our partnership has already increased guest satisfaction, all while increasing order sizes and revenue for the venue.
Last but certainly not least on our list for Nashville, the Tennessee Performing Arts Center! As Nashville is the capital of Tennessee, it’s only fitting that the city hosts the official Performing Arts Center for the state. The Tennessee Performing Arts Center, or TPAC, hosts a variety of productions, including the Nashville Ballet, Opera and Repertory Theatre taking residency year-round. The mission for TPAC is, ‘To lead with excellence in the performing arts and arts education, creating meaningful and relevant experience to enrich lives, strengthen communities, and support economic vitality.’
See our products in action at TPAC, as we have 30 iSeries Point of Sale terminals and iPad Mini handheld devices dispersed in the space for easy ordering and payment solutions to get guests back in their seats to watch the show.
