Izzo’s Illegal Burrito Group Rolls with Toast

BOSTON, Jan. 23, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Toast, the all-in-one restaurant technology platform and one of the fastest-growing technology companies in the U.S., today announced its partnership with Izzo’s Illegal Burrito Group, which includes the group’s namesake 16-location fast-casual Mexican restaurant dedicated to “Rolling You a Better Burrito®” and LIT Pizza, an eatery slicing up “blast fired” pizza at its locations in Baton Rouge and Gonzales, Louisiana. Toast now serves as the Company’s point-of-sale (POS) system at all Izzo’s and LIT Pizza locations.

Established in 2001, Izzo’s was founded on a few basic principles: to serve only the highest quality food with generous portions, offer fast and friendly service, and, provide a great value in a fun and comfortable atmosphere.

"Having used a legacy POS since inception, we decided a cloud-based system was the right choice to help us continue to scale and serve delicious burritos, pizza and more to our loyal customers,” said Ozzie Fernandez, co-founder and CEO at Izzo’s Illegal Burrito Group. “Toast stood out as a partner that will lead innovation in the restaurant technology industry for many years to come."

Toast Restaurant POS offers advanced functionality to manage the day-to-day operations of the restaurant, including quick menu modifications, real-time enterprise reporting and labor management on an easy-to-use interface. The platform also features revenue-driving tools including physical and digital gift cards, loyalty programs, and online ordering.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Izzo’s Illegal Burrito Group to the Toast family,” said Aman Narang, president and co-founder at Toast. “Izzo’s, much like Toast, strives to deliver nothing but the best to its customers. We look forward to being a small piece of the Izzo’s Illegal Burrito and LIT Pizza guest journey for years to come.”
