Stories from Our Merchants

While we can’t add extra hours to your day, we’re proud that we’re able to help over 50,000 local businesses across America save hours every week.

Now, we’re sharing some of their stories, in an aptly named section of our website: Customer Stories.

To start, we’ve spoken with the owners of a taco shop in Portland, OR, that used to own a pair of fine-dining restaurants in El Paso, TX, but wanted to do something more casual for their next act.

And the manager of a family fun center in Ohio who’s runs a complex with every type of entertainment under the sun, from bowling to laser tag to live music.

Then there’s the owner of vape shop in Chicago, looking to provide his employees with a little extra scheduling flexibility so that they can enjoy Chicago’s beautiful summers (and all the festivals that take place).

We round out the first set of stories with an interview with a BBQ restaurant owner in Pueblo, Colorado, that uses Homebase to save about seven hours a month by automating his scheduling and payroll recordkeeping.

We have many more stories to share, and we’d love to know what you think. And if you’d like your business to be featured, get in touch in the comments below.
