Evanston is a city located just north of Chicago Illinois, home to Northwestern University and is the world’s headquarters of Rotary International. Catering to Evanston’s diverse population is a new three-restaurant complex housing two familiar Evanston restaurants; LuLus and Taco Diablo and something new, Five and Dime. LuLu’s serves Asian fare including Japanese, Chinese, Thai & Korean staples. Taco Diablo dishes out Mexican favorites including tacos and memorable margaritas. Five-and-Dime is a rooftop bar and grill serving traditional American fare with outdoor seating and additional seating indoors for inclement weather.
LuLu’s and Taco Diablo are located downstairs and share a kitchen while Five and Dime has its own kitchen upstairs. Total POS Systems, a unique organization delivering advanced restaurant solutions to small and large independent businesses, was brought in to evaluate the restaurants Point-of-Sale needs and recommend a solution that would fit this complex setup. The restaurant owner needed each front of house Point-of-Sale system to be able to communicate with the appropriate Kitchen Display System. Total POS Systems recommended Bematech KDS and moved forward with installing Bematech’s LS6100 controller and KB1700 bump bar.
