TGI Fridays Inc. Partners with Microsoft Corp. on Tablets to Streamline Orders

TGI Fridays Inc., in relationship with Microsoft Corp., is transforming its guests' experience by equipping servers with 8-inch tablets so they can quickly and accurately process orders and payments while at the table. Using the new Fridays Service Style technology powered by Windows 8.1, servers can carry their tablets from table to table to take orders and respond promptly to guest requests. The devices use Windows 8.1, running Oracle's MICROS Restaurant Enterprise Solution (RES) 5.4 on the Dell Venue mTablet E-Series mobile point of sale devices. Many restaurant technology solutions rely on proprietary hardware or custom ruggedized devices, built to withstand the abuse of a kitchen environment. Such solutions can be expensive and take a long time to develop and deploy. Oracle's MICROS RES 5.4 allows TGI Fridays to manage the various aspects of running a restaurant, from tableside ordering to traffic and queue management, all from one solution and in a much more cost-effective way. The device also improves the table wait time and helps regulate the pace of orders sent to the kitchen.

TGI Friday's Adds Bacon Ranch Flavor to Popular Potato Skins Snack Chip Line

TGI Friday's Bacon Ranch is the latest variety to join the brand's restaurant-inspired Potato Skins line, licensed by Inventure Foods Inc. The new snack chip is currently available in convenience stores and vending machines nationwide. Bacon Ranch Potato Skins are made from real potatoes and use dual sheeting technology to create a dark side and a light side, just like real potato skins. The chips are seasoned with the perfect combination of savory bacon and zesty ranch to create a hearty and satisfying snack chip. The suggested retail prices per 1.75-ounce and 3-ounce bags are $1.00 and $1.99 to $2.19, respectively. Potato Skins are also available in Cheddar Bacon, Sour Cream & Onion, Cheddar Sour Cream, Jalapeno Cheddar and Chili Cheese. In addition to Potato Skins, snack line staples include Cheddar Cheese Crunchy Fries, Onion Rings and Mozzarella Sticks.
