Smokejack is a casual restaurant in downtown Alpharetta, Georgia; a suburb of Atlanta.

When it came time to open his own restaurant three years ago, Owner Dave Filipowicz selected SquirrelOne.
“I chose SquirrelOne for Smokejack because of my long history with the product.  I wanted to work with a company that had a long track record as a vendor to the table service restaurant industry.  My personal experience with Squirrel over the years has been second to none,” said Filipowicz.  “Almost all of the Squirrel staff I have worked with came from the restaurant industry.  They understand my business and work with me to align the system to meet the goals of my operation.”

Smokejack currently uses SquirrelOne for point of sale and Squirrel’s punch clock functionality for time and attendance.  The plan is to expand functionality to include inventory, employee scheduling and QuickBooks financials.

Dave is not stopping with just one Smokejack.  This dynamic restaurateur is currently planning his next restaurant scheduled to open by early 2009.  With the opening of the second store, Dave and his team will start using Squirrel’s multi-unit management tools.  This will allow the team to manage multiple databases from a remote location, view consolidated reports and much more.

“I’m passionate about food, not technology,” said Filipowicz.  “SquirrelOne allows me to be more efficient so that I can focus on what’s important to my operation – delivering a quality food and service experience to my guests.”
