PIXY stock moved higher in early trading on May 19, 2020, after the company announced a partnership with 11 Del Taco restaurants in New Mexico.
ShiftPixy (NASDAQ: PIXY), a California-based gig engagement platform provider, today announced a partnership with Diamondback DTNM, LLC (DBA Del Taco), operator of 11 Del Taco restaurants in the Albuquerque, NM area, to comprehensively implement ShiftPixy’s disruptive platform across all locations in the face of the Coronavirus pandemic. The Del Taco franchisee is leveraging ShiftPixy’s end-to-end platform for human capital management and native delivery.
“The upheaval from COVID-19 has forced restaurants to re-think their approach to customers, employees and third-party alliances. The folks at Diamondback understood that ShiftPixy was uniquely positioned to help solve critical issues forced on operators but also as leverage to thrive beyond the current crisis,” said Scott Absher, CEO and co-founder of ShiftPixy. “With the ShiftPixy platform, John Bissell and his team were able to quickly and effectively revamp their infrastructure to deploy native delivery, allowing them to focus on delivering a great food experience while also keeping the commissions they were losing and better engaging with their customers.”
With restaurants across the country facing unparalleled obstacles and forced to dramatically adapt, ShiftPixy recently announced its Restaurant Resilience Plan to give operators access to technology and services vital to their survival and ideal for once business reopens.
“We were already dissatisfied with our legacy providers, and like many other restaurant operators, the pandemic forced us to make integral choices quickly. ShiftPixy offered us the perfect mix of control and services to weather the storm,” said John Bissell, VP and COO of Diamondback. “We’ve saved significant time and capital and have elevated employee engagement. The native delivery solution, which we think is simply amazing, has allowed us to access customers we would not have otherwise reached while maintaining control of our brand.”
Once the largest Denny’s franchisee with 94 stores in their system, Dennis Ekstrom, former COO of QT and now CEO & President and John’s partner at Diamondback added, “ShiftPixy’s first to market solution is solving major human capital and customer engagement challenges in the restaurant industry. Leadership across the restaurant industry should make this brave and smart move now, to not just survive today but to maximize their unit economics once the current crisis passes.”
