Uniware were approached in 2014 by RoadChef with the intention to upgrade their current EPoS, EFT and back office system. The service station required a flexible solution as there are regularly different discounts and offers promoted. However, after exploring what Uniware were able to offer, our solutions were implemented into the various outlets at the service stations. As a result, there are many well-known outlets that are currently using the Uniware EPoS solution.
Since our software was installed, Roadchef have announced they are excitingly opening their first motorway drive-thru Costa. The drive thru is on the M27, between junctions 3 and 4, and will also include an eat-in Costa, McDonalds, Fresh Food Cafe and WHSmith. In addition to coffee the Costa drive-thru will offer a range of sandwiches, cakes and snacks.
The drive thru has been described by Simon Turl, CEO of Roadchef as, 'the unit looks fantastic and has excellent visibility from the M27, ensuring drivers can make a quick stop-off and enjoy a delicious Costa coffee while taking a break from their journeys'. Finally something to make those horrendous hours in rush hour a bit more bearable!
