The company will use the funding to further accelerate its already strong momentum in providing to industry-leading POS solutions that address the needs of fast-casual and QSR enterprise restaurants.

Amir Hudda, CEO of Qu, said: “I am really excited to bring some of the best technology and restaurant industry expertise together.

The company has grown into an enterprise-class POS platform that is used by leading restaurants across the U.S to help them move faster and increase profits.

Qu’s cloud-based ordering solutions enable centralized POS management and allow operators to deliver uniform guest experience when orders are placed.

“Our continued investment in Qu reflects our strong belief that they possess the technology, strategic vision, and industry expertise to continue to deliver innovative POS solutions. We look forward to our ongoing successful partnership with their management team.”

Qu’s new delivery solution enables restaurateurs to bring delivery in-house and offers a complementary solution to third-party delivery providers.
