Hoboken office officially opens its doors as the company looks to build the US team
7shifts, the leading labor management platform for restaurants, has chosen Hoboken as the location of their first U.S. office, officially opening today. Originally founded in 2014 by Jordan Boesch in his hometown of Regina, Canada, 7shifts’ North American office launch is reinforced by the hiring of former Yelp VP, Global Partnerships, Preston Junger to be the company’s’ Head of US Operations.
The US office opening comes after the announcement of the company raising an additional $6 million (USD) in funding in the Fall of 2019 to accelerate North American growth.
With a vision of simplifying labor management for the restaurant industry, 7shifts will continue to focus efforts on hiring a US team to better serve the company’s growing NYC client base and accelerate overall market awareness. A new, physical US presence will also allow the brand to hone in on helping local restaurants stay compliant in light of the NYC Fair Workweek laws. 7shifts picked Hoboken as its US home because of its proximity to countless NYC restaurants in need of a more seamless staff scheduling and communication solution.
“Hoboken offers companies a tremendous advantage in growth and scalability,” says Preston Junger, Head of U.S. operations. “Given our vibrant local culture, world-class hospitality, and proximity to the New York market we couldn’t think of a better place to build our business and support restaurants.”
7shifts’ labor management software improves the operations of restaurants of all sizes – from growing independents to national brands – by simplifying team scheduling, labor budgeting, communication, and compliance, freeing up time for managers to serve their customers and focus on providing exceptional guest experiences.
Today the company is used by over 13,000 restaurants across North America, primarily in the U.S., and is providing over 350,000 restaurant workers with an engaging way to manage their work schedules. 7shifts schedules over 7 million shifts per month, which translates to significant savings for restaurants and managers; thousands of hours saved on schedule administration and $12 million per month in labor cost savings.
“We are dedicated to making the lives of restaurant employees easier,” said 7shifts CEO, Jordan Boesch. “The opening of our Hoboken office is an exciting milestone for us, because it means we’ll be able partner with even more amazing U.S. restaurants to streamline the pains of scheduling and labor management.”
