Andrew Baber replied to Ryan Gold's discussion Does your restaurant have an iPhone App?
"From what I understand most POS systems can allow a simple XML feed as an order input (assuming the menus are properly aligned). I've been speaking with MetroORDER and SalesVu on this front and it seems doable. Some of the awesome perks of a…"

Welcome Andrew,
Thanks for joining FohBoh. Let's see if we can connect regarding potential business development. I'm involved with mobile food, farm to table initiatives and community shellfish farms. Any chance some of your catering could incorporate mobile oyster bars? The general concept involves freshly harvested oysters from Tomales Bay, transported to a venue within hours of harvest and expertly shucked for the enjoyment of patrons. Let me know?

Hi Andrew,

What brings you to FohBoh? I suggest that you join a couple of groups that relate to your catering business, and connect with other like-minded FohBoh members. In fact, you and Luc Chamberland may have something in common...he also operates a SF-based food business.

Stay connected. Use this community, and contact me anytime.
