New quick-service concept by celebrity chef Fabio Viviani to harness Square’s franchise-management capabilities as it expands to more than 100 locations nationwide
Oakland, CA & Chicago, IL – Today, technology company Square announced that it will be powering quick-service restaurant JARS, a fast-growing franchise concept from celebrity chef Fabio Viviani. Square has been serving hundreds of thousands of food and beverage businesses for more than a decade, and its suite of offerings for restaurants allows operators to grow and streamline their businesses. JARS currently has locations in Illinois, Texas, and California with more than 100 additional locations set to open across the country.
JARS is the latest culinary concept by celebrity chef Fabio Viviani, who has more than 30 years of experience in the hospitality industry and more than 32 different restaurant businesses under his belt. Viviani developed this new dessert franchise as a high-volume concept that leverages the latest technology and labor-saving cooking techniques to produce high-quality desserts, shakes, and coffee drinks that drive viral food content through its creative and “Instagrammable” presentation.
With Square, JARS will be able to easily manage their operations all in one place with streamlined payment processing, inventory and menu management, real-time visibility into business performance, and more.
