HotSchedules was founded in Austin, Texas in the late 90’s by two restaurant guys who thought that managing and working for a restaurant ought to be easier. They decided to tackle one problem in particular: old-school scheduling practices. When one of them was asked to build a Website for a college project, he saw an opportunity to put an end to the persistent paper-schedules and back-and-forth phone calls. He developed a site that let employees log-on and view their schedule from their computers. It was a huge hit and a company was born*. Today, HotSchedules provides the most loved, followed and used employee scheduling and labor management solution in the restaurant industry. Over the years, we’ve proudly earned the trust of more than 1.2 million managers, owners, operators, servers, line cooks, bussers and bartenders. Our employee scheduling software is used by companies of all shapes and sizes, from huge franchise operations down to independent mom and pops and pretty much everyone in between. But the leadership team recognized that the picture wasn’t complete. After all, there’s a lot more to successfully running a restaurant than managing labor. So, when the opportunity to partner with other industry-leading companies, including Macromatix (back-office management), Schoox (e-learning management system) and the Manager’s Red Book (shift and task management) came up – it was a no-brainer. For a short while, we called ourselves Red Book Connect (and if you heard of it, well, yay! Some of that expensive marketing paid off!), but it wasn’t long before we realized that the name most people recognized and had come to love was HotSchedules. In 2015, we decided to go back to the HotSchedules namesake. We also decided to strengthen our portfolio with two game-changing products: Jobsabi, the hottest referral-based recruiting tool in the restaurant industry, and Bodhi, which integrates and delivers all your data on a “silver platform”. In a lot of ways, this year feels like we’re just getting started. What was once a small Austin office filled with people working in their gym clothes is now a global family working hard (sometimes still in their sweats) to make our products amazing for everyone. One thing is for sure, we’re looking forward to what the next decade has in store and in continuing to deliver on our mission, our purpose and our values.
