The Challenge

The PROP is a food pavilion located at Prescott Park on the waterfront in Portsmouth, NH. It is a unique dining experience that offers refreshing snacks only on those days the Park is hosting an event. Given high demand for food and beverages during show times, waiting in line to order was a rite of passage most patrons would rather not endure. In addition to cutting down on the size of the lines, the solution needed to be fun and the point of sale system had to have as few keystrokes as possible with an easy-to-read interface to help get orders right and keep customers happy. More importantly, Bōwst provided our services pro bono as a way for us to give back to our community and to allow us to have some fun while exploring the technology we love.

The Result

Our team developed Android and iOS apps that display menu choices and send diners' orders to a custom iOS point of sale order management system. The PROP mobile app is built on the Iconic framework, which is an open source front-end software developer kit for developing mobile apps using web technologies. We built the point-of-sale system using the new Swift programming language for iOS, it runs on an iPad for The PROP kitchen staff. Finally, the app is promoted on a microsite we developed in Drupal 8.
