Most payment processing systems, including point-of-sale terminals, operate through an internet connection. Unfortunately, technology isn’t always the most reliable. It can freeze, glitch or shut down altogether, bringing everything – including processing payments – to a screeching halt. That’s why it’s imperative that your business has equipment in place to keep business transactions up and running in the event of an internet outage.   Many offline terminals use a similar queue system (at Heartland it’s called Store and Forward) that allows you to...

Based on a survey, the median cost to open a new restaurant is $275,000. That’s about $3,046 per seat. It’s true...

National Restaurant Association  /  July 5, 2018 An E. coli outbreak is a nightmare for everyone: the customers, the community and the restaurant where it happened. For restaurant operators, corrective next steps are crucial to success; they can’t afford to make one mistake. What should you do in the event of an outbreak? First, pay attention to all information, updates and product recall announcements. Because the food supply chain is complex, sometimes suppliers or manufacturers don’t deliver timely notices of the recall. Below, Ashley Miller, one of our food safety...

Initiative #77 was today approved by a majority of the meager number of registered voters who came out to vote. We, however, do not see this as the end of a discussion, but the beginning. We cannot accept as final a vote in a primary election, in the middle of the summer, on a ballot measure the language of which was, at best, misleading. Unaffiliated voters, Republicans and even many Democrats had little reason to participate in the process, which is why turnout was historically low, and fewer than 10% of the District’s more than 100,000 non-Democratic voters bothered to vote. The...
