Mardi Gras is a system that rallies around
Glen Armantrout, Mahony’s President says, “If you have ever been to New Orleans during Mardi Gras you will understand the craze.” Mahony’s required a system that could handle the annual celebrations that flood New Orleans with tourists when looking at restaurantPOS systems .
Glen says that Mardi Gras is a time when everything doubles at the restaurant. “We were worried that our old POS might fail due to the influx of orders.”
