Wireless Ronin Provides Kiosks & Menu Boards for Burger Studio

Minneapolis-based Wireless Ronin Technologies have expanded their relationship with food services company ARAMARK by providing the hardware and software for the digital menu boards and interactive ordering kiosks of their new Burger Studio brand of campus restaurants. Wireless Ronin also participated in the creative process.

It will be especially interesting to see the interface for the kiosks as they allow students to "build their own burgers". We will keep you up-to-date with pictures as they become available. Here's the complete press release:



MINNEAPOLIS – October 28, 2009 - Wireless Ronin Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: RNIN), a Minneapolis-based digital signage provider, announced today that its relationship providing digital signage solutions for ARAMARK has expanded to include its newly launched Burger Studio brand through its Higher Education division.

“Wireless Ronin has been working with ARAMARK on the concept for over a year. We provided the touch screen order kiosk, the digital menu system and participated in the creation of the menu and touch interface design which was based on the visual style created by ARAMARK,” said James (Jim) Granger, president and CEO of Wireless Ronin Technologies. “We are excited to see the positive reaction and press coverage regarding the initial roll outs such as the article written by Nation’s Restaurant News.”

Wireless Ronin provides the hardware and RoninCast® digital signage software for digital menu boards and touch screen ordering kiosks. The Burger Studio kiosks allow students to build their own burgers by selecting their choice of Angus, chicken or veggie burgers and customize them with over 30 topping options. As they make selections, the kiosk displays their burgers being built with their topping choices. Once the order is complete, the kiosk prints a receipt while another order receipt prints in the kitchen area.

ARAMARK Higher Education provides professional services to more than 600 colleges and universities throughout North America and launched Burger Studio™, the first brand created entirely by students, this fall at the University of Delaware, University of Hartford, Middle Tennessee State University and Missouri Western State University. ARAMARK plans to open additional locations through the remainder of 2009 and early next year.

Wireless Ronin has worked with ARAMARK over the past year providing digital signage solutions for multiple ARAMARK divisions including Healthcare, Business Dining Service, K-12 and Higher Education. Wireless Ronin has provided consulting, creative design, project management, custom development, training, installation and hosting through the Network Operations Center located in Minneapolis.
