Fini Pizza Opens Doors With Integrated Website, Ordering, and POS
Sean Feeney, part of the team behind Brooklyn institutions Lilia and Misi, powers his new neighborhood pizza shop with BentoBox and Clover.
- Brooklyn, NY
Few people know how to match New Yorkers with their carbs better than Sean Feeney. As a co-founder of Grovehouse Hospitality Group, the team behind Brooklyn institutions Lilia and Misi, Feeney has a track record of building successful restaurants around the kind of fork-dropping pasta moments that make weeks of anticipation worth it. In 2022, Feeney decided his next business would take on a restaurant model even closer to the soul of New York: The neighborhood pizza shop.
Feeney knew he needed to represent his new business on the web with the same trusted partner he’d used at Lilia and Misi. He turned to BentoBox.
“Working with BentoBox has alleviated financial stress for our businesses while empowering us to tell the stories we want to tell, on a platform we have 100% control of,” says Feeney. “I love the ease of editing in real time and how the experience feels when you’re ordering off the website.”
For the new restaurant’s point-of-sale system, Feeney chose Clover. “The most important question we ask about any tech we use is, Does it make us faster, smarter, and kinder?” Feeney says. “This helps us be as vertically integrated as possible. We use technology to drive our hospitality in a way that makes everyone feel like a friend of ours, whether it’s your second visit with us or your 500th.”
Equipped with Clover POS, BentoBox’s Online Ordering, and a custom-tailored website, Fini Pizza opened for business on August 16, 2022. Lines were around the block and zero-commission orders began to pour in through the website.
In October 2022, Fini capitalized on its beautiful design and buzzworthy opening by launching a Merchandise store through BentoBox, and Gift Cards soon after.
“A website is no longer just a website,” says Feeney. “BentoBox is actually helping businesses deliver other streams of revenue to guests and fans.”
A few months after launch, Fini Pizza has already earned plenty of those. Better order ahead if you’re hungry.
BentoBox helps businesses become healthier and more efficient. Ultimately, they allow the hospitality industry to make people happier. That's what sets Bento apart.
