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.
