AUSTIN, Texas, March 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Famous Five Dining, Inc., owner, operator, and franchisee of five Famous Dave's Legendary Pit Bar-B-Que restaurants in Tennessee, now offers Tabbedout in all of their locations. Famous Five Dining has the rights to franchise Famous Dave's Legendary Pit Bar-B-Que throughout Central & East Tennessee and parts of North Georgia. Currently, it operates Famous Dave's restaurants in Hermitage, Franklin, Chattanooga, Knoxville and Smyrna, Tennessee.
Tabbedout is the free mobile payment app for iPhone and Android that allows consumers to open, view and pay bar and restaurant tabs with their phones, and is fully integrated with MICROS, Famous Five Dining's point-of-sale (POS) partner. This means patrons can pay directly from their phone when they are ready and wait staff can spend more time serving food and drink instead of running credit cards.
"Tabbedout is unique in that it is deeply integrated with our POS system, which made it simple to install and enables customers to securely pay directly from their own device," said Laurel Renegar, CFO of Famous Five Dining. "Our commitment in creating a Guest-centric culture drove our decision to add Tabbedout to our venues. We know mobile payments are on the rise and they are something our customers are demanding; we wanted to partner with a trusted leader who has experience providing this in full-service restaurants."
Tabbedout allows users to securely store credit or debit card information directly on their phone, encrypted and under passphrase protection, instead of on host servers or in "the cloud." Consumers are safe from the threat of stolen payment information due to lost or forgotten credit cards since they now can open and pay their tab directly from their phone. Patrons can also view their itemized tab in real-time and can split the tab with friends right from the app.
"Famous Dave's has over 190 locations across the U.S. and continues to grow," said Kevin McKeand, vice president of major accounts for Tabbedout. "Our goal is to help Famous Dave's continue winning awards for their barbeque and service across all of their locations as they grow, while providing a more efficient and secure guest experience in their restaurants."
Tabbedout integrates with all major hospitality POS systems including MICROS, NCR Aloha, Digital Dining, Dinerware, Future POS and Focus, and provides service in more than 1000 bars and restaurants nationwide. For more information, please visit www.tabbedout.com.
