Shari’s Café and Pies embraces A.I. powered site selection by partnering with SiteZeus®
Shari’s Café and Pies, the Oregon-based family restaurant chain, is bringing their business model to a new era and is turning to SiteZeus and its prescriptive-led growth strategy for a key part of the brand’s evolution and growth. Shari’s, which opened its first restaurant in 1978, now operates more than 90 locations in Oregon, Washington, California, Idaho, Nebraska, and Wyoming.
In 2018, Shari’s introduced a new, reimagined restaurant design and enhanced menu. To successfully roll out the new concept, Shari’s is relying on SiteZeus’ A.I. powered platform to help them better understand the drivers of store performance from a granular level. After beginning their journey with a proof-of-concept model that provided detailed insights into existing and potential store performance, Shari’s is now taking full advantage of prescriptive-led growth as their location intelligence strategy.
Thanks to features like SiteZeus’ Sandbox Portfolio Optimization, Shari’s can now make smart, data-driven decisions related to store remodels, relocations or closures, thus helping to ensure that the next chapter of the brand’s story will be a successful one.
