Protecting Investments: How a Growing Chain Safeguards Revenue & Uniquely Designed Locations

Challenge

Hawkers Asian Street Food encountered inefficiencies in traditional filing systems, impeding the retrieval and tracking of crucial lease information. The manual process was time-consuming and error-prone, risking critical documents being buried on desks. Urgency intensified with Hawkers’ substantial upfront investments in each location, accentuating the imperative need for a streamlined lease management system to mitigate the risk of potential losses.

The challenges faced by Hawkers Asian Street Food include the need to prevent location loss due to overlooked lease renewals, convert leases and critical documents confined to a filing cabinet, and stay ahead of notice periods. These challenges highlight the pressing requirement for implementing a streamlined lease management system that not only addresses current inefficiencies but also ensures proactive management of lease agreements. The transition to a more advanced system is crucial for enhancing operational efficiency and safeguarding Hawkers’ substantial investments in various locations.

It all started when four best friends decided to bring the bold flavors of Asian street food to the streets of Orlando in 2011.

Hawkers Asian Street Fare is a vibrant, Asian-street-food inspired dining occasion. Hawkers aims to redefine the Asian dining experience within the fast-casual dining market with diverse offerings of hand-crafted food and beverages, street-inspired ambiance, and a uniquely insightful approach to guest service.
