Ryan’s Parent, Buffets, Inc. also commits for three more years to Tibersoft

WESTBOROUGH, Mass. — Tibersoft, the expert in food cost control systems for the foodservice industry, announced that Ryan’s Restaurant Group will implement the Tibersoft IQ solution to optimize chain-wide food purchasing and gain greater visibility into their supply chain operations.

Ryan’s Restaurant Group intends to build upon the success of their new parent Company, Buffets, a Tibersoft client since 2004, to gain greater control of their contract compliance process and negotiations with suppliers by virtue of the strong ad-hoc reporting capabilities provided by Tibersoft. Tibersoft IQ allows foodservice operators to ensure they are capturing the full value of their contracts, through real-time alerts and reports that monitor contract price variances, purchases eligible for rebates, as well as item compliance and category rationalization opportunities.

Keith Enstice, CEO and President of Tibersoft said that “the foodservice industry is extremely competitive and restaurant operators such as Ryan’s and Buffets are leading the way in deploying food cost control solutions as strategic drivers for company growth and profitability. We are extremely proud of our success with Buffets and are confident of our ability to meet and exceed expectations with Ryan’s”.
