Adyen (AMS: ADYEN), the global payments platform of choice for many of the world’s leading companies, and Cypress Five Star, Inc., a leading franchise operator, are teaming up to bring unified payments across their 60 Five Guys locations in Canada. Adyen will support in-restaurant POS payments services, creating a seamless experience for the customer while enhancing tipping functionality to benefit restaurant workers.

“As we were looking for a new payments platform, we wanted a solution that seamlessly integrated to our systems while providing a reliable and easy to implement system to our stores,” said Darven Erickson, President & CEO at Cypress Five Star. “Not only was Adyen able to check those boxes, we also discovered that we could implement payment features that will improve our restaurant experience. With Adyen’s Terminal Fleet Manager, we were able to configure gratuity settings on the terminal which increased our average tip amounts by $1.12 per hour, per employee. Implementing a best in class system that maximizes tips for our team members helps Cypress provide an unsurpassed experience for our employees and ultimately, our guests.”
