Zigs Bakery - Moving forward with EMV Credit Card Processing

Zig’s Bakery & Cafe is famous for their handcrafted baked goods and artisan foods. The local farming environment in Lititz, PA inspired this authentic farm-bakery to stay true to it’s roots by operating out of a classic 1800’s red barn called Brick Gables. At heart, Zig’s is not only the product of generations but of local culture.

After operating for a year they have recently upgraded their system to run EMV cards. Things are working well, and they are staying compliant using the VX805 with Vanitv as the processor.

So how did this charming farm bakery become a major success? Just ask the owner...

“Zig’s has become a six-days-a-week bakery, cafe, and hangout. How did this happen!? The past three years of working on and designing our new location at Brick Gables has been tremendous. Knowing the energy that has been spent perfecting every last detail lets me appreciate how everything has come to fruition.” — Brandon Ziegler, Owner

That’s right, running a successful business is determined by careful examination of every detail. While we won’t be able to cover every aspect of a successful bakery in one article, we can use this time to cover a very important aspect that should never be overlooked: the Point of Sale system.

Purchasing a POS system may not be the most thrilling aspect of opening a bakery, but it is a critical one. A POS is what handles the monetary exchange from the customer to the seller. The reliability and functionality of the POS directly impacts things such as sales, reporting, reconciling, vendor ordering, as well as employee and inventory management. These are only a few examples and it’s important to note that not all POS providers offer features to accommodate these needs.

So when Zigs was researching the best bakery POS, they required the POS functions above and some more industry specific ones such as:

  • Catering & Scheduling
  • Loyalty & Rewards Programs
  • Labeling, Inventory & Batching
  • Business Analytics
  • EMV & NFC Payment Integration

After thorough research, Zigs Bakery concluded that Cafe Cartel POS was undeniably the best Point of Sale System on the market. Not only did CCS meet their needs in terms of features, but they also provided a variety of different hardware options for every price point. On top of that, Zig’s gained instant access to technical support and 15 years of industry related experience.
