Company owned brands include Bevager, used for beverage ordering, invoicing and inventory management; and Foodager, used for menu engineering, recipe costing, price comparison, purchasing and invoice management.
According to Craftable, users of the company’s products can boost revenues while also lowering pour costs by 3% to 5% and food costs by 2% to 3%. Today, more than 50,000 monthly active customers use the company’s SaaS platforms. Craftable, led by co-founder and CEO Samuel Zats, was founded in 2015 and is headquartered northwest of Dallas in Farmers Branch, Texas.
