Minneapolis, MN, January 30, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Continuing a successful rollout of its cloud-based reservations system, Timothy Ryan, President and Director of EVEVE’s U.S. operations, announced today that Morrissey Hospitality Companies (MHC), the Midwest’s leading hospitality management company, has switched the reservation systems for Enjoy! Restaurant and Bar in Apple Valley, MN and Paradise Landing Restaurant in Balsam Lake, WI to EVEVE. Entering the U.S. market just six months ago, EVEVE has succeeded in capturing more than 20% of all Twin Cities online bookings and announced last month that they have now surpassed Urbanspoon as Open Table’s leading U.S. competitor.
“We feel very fortunate that one of the Midwest’s most prestigious hospitality management companies has switched their online reservation systems for two of their restaurants to us,” said EVEVE’s Tim Ryan. “Morrissey Hospitality Companies is one of Midwest’s most respected hospitality management companies and we are thrilled to announce them as our newest partner,” said Ryan.
Morrissey Hospitality Companies, located in St. Paul, MN, is the Midwest’s leading hospitality management company with a prestigious portfolio of hotels, restaurants and sports and entertainment brands. MHC’s restaurants – including Enjoy! and Paradise Landing – rank among the best of the best in the country, garnering awards from the Zagat Survey, Gourmet Magazine, St. Paul Pioneer Press, Minneapolis-St. Paul Magazine, Wine Spectator, Twin Cities Business Monthly and Minnesota Monthly.
MHC’s Corporate Director of Marketing, Arthur Morrissey, said, “Our brands provide authentic hospitality to our guests and we need to give our people the tools to be successful...Controlling the input costs help keep the cost to the guest down and we all like having more dollars in our pockets,” Morrissey added. “We welcome the partnership between Enjoy!, Paradise Landing and EVEVE,”
“Several other restaurant reservation companies have tried to compete with Open Table but none of them have succeeded the way we have in our initial U.S. test market,” said Ryan. “EVEVE’s successes validates our research that shows a huge market of restaurateurs have been waiting for an affordable alternative...Our newest restaurant partner did extensive research about our successes in the Twin Cities and chose us because they have come to trust our software to take care of customer reservations while significantly cutting overhead,” said Ryan.
EVEVE’s cutting-edge technology, which uses cloud-based solutions, makes it easier for restaurants to take advantage of critically important new mobile technologies. “As restaurants start to look into mobile websites, they realize our system will be much easier to integrate,” said Ryan, “And I think that’s another reason we’re fielding calls from all over the country. Restaurant owners not only have to cut costs, but stay on top of technology at the same time, and the fact that Eveve offers both has contributed to our careful but rapid growth.”
Launched in 2007, EVEVE is a leading global supplier of live reservation systems and has relationships with approximately 1,000 restaurants worldwide.
