Doylestown, Pennsylvania-based Sicom Systems, which provides restaurants with point-of-sale, kitchen management, and drive-through technology, announces its acquisition of Marietta, Georgia-based RTI, which makes software for quick-serve and fast-casual restaurants.
The company says RTI’s restaurant software will complement its own end-to-end technologies and enable it to expand its capacity, accelerate research and development and increase its presence in new brands and markets.
RTI’s founders were multi-unit franchisees before starting the software company in 1985, according to the press release announcing the sale, and designed their software solutions based on their own experiences in the industry. The company today serves more than 10,000 restaurants and its client list includes such name brands as McDonald’s, Arby’s, Checkers, Popeyes, Wendy’s, Burger King and Church’s Chicken.
RTI offers RTIconnect, RTIoffice and RTI Payroll solutions, helping multi-unit franchises improve operational efficiencies and increase profitability.
“We welcome RTI to the SICOM family. With the industry-specific experience of its founders and employees, RTI has earned a sterling reputation among its customers,” says Jim Flynn, CEO of SICOM. “It is a growing company with a breadth of customers that will enable us to penetrate new brands with our end-to-end technologies and expand into new markets.”
The combined new company will serve more than 25,000 restaurants globally in more than 38 countries.
