SpotOn announced that it has reached a strategic agreement to sell its Sports & Entertainment business to Shift4, while retaining select assets to support the growth of its restaurant business. The move will streamline the SpotOn business, focusing resources on the restaurant industry. SpotOn Restaurant has delivered high double-digit growth year over year and has been rated the #1 restaurant point-of-sale by real users.
“The unique structure of this deal enables SpotOn to accelerate product development in support of our restaurant business while ensuring that our Sports & Entertainment clients are well supported going forward,” says Zach Hyman, co-founder and co-CEO of SpotOn. “This move enables us to double down on our Restaurant business, providing the necessary focus, resources, and investment to become the best restaurant technology company in the business.”
Following the deal, SpotOn will focus teams and investment to supercharge growth in the Restaurant space. The company began serving restaurants in 2019 and has aggressively grown its market share each year. SpotOn Restaurant is now one of the most comprehensive, end-to-end restaurant technology platforms on the market, giving restaurant operators everything they need to drive profit – from an intuitive point-of-sale system with solutions for online ordering, reservations, and labor management to hardware designed to improve employee efficiency and service speed.
