MICROS Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MCRS), a leading provider of information technology solutions for the hospitality and retail industries, is pleased to announce that Rex Restaurant Associates (“RexRA”) selected the MICROS Restaurant Enterprise Solution (RES) for its latest two ventures to open in Central London, The Delaunay and Brasserie Zedel which is scheduled to open in June 2012.
The Delaunay, an all-day café-restaurant inspired by the grand cafés of Europe, is located on the corner of historic Drury Lane and The Aldwych. It is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week, and also serves morning and afternoon tea, with a take-out option also on offer. Brasserie Zedel is a large, bustling Parisian brasserie transported to the heart of London. Open throughout the day, offering great value with remarkably low prices, its glorious, historic Art Deco interiors also play host to a ‘Bar
Américain’ and ‘The Crazy Coqs’, a live music and cabaret venue. Owning company, Rex Restaurant Associates (RexRA) was established by Chris Corbin and Jeremy King, the respected restaurateurs behind The Wolseley and previous owners of Le Caprice, J Sheekey and The Ivy.
MICROS was selected as the technology partner to support the new ventures. The MICROS RES solution, together with the latest MICROS workstations and handheld terminals, allows staff in both restaurants to provide smooth, high quality service to customers even at the busiest times of day. They are also taking advantage of MICROS’s integrated Chip & PIN capabilities, which provide fast, secure payment processing as well as powerful reporting capability within mymicros.net to help monitor performance.
Commented Alex Pitchford, Project Manager at RexRA, “Having MICROS as our technology partner provides us that extra level of confidence that every customer, whether enjoying a leisurely afternoon tea or grabbing some lunch, will experience exceptional quality of service.”
“We are very pleased to be working with Rex Restaurant Associates,” said Matthew Parker, Director of Sales at MICROS-Fidelio UK. “The team at RexRA has an impressive track record of hugely successful restaurants and we are extremely proud to have been selected for its latest ventures.”
About Rex Restaurant Associates
Rex Restaurant Associates was set up by Chris Corbin and Jeremy King in 2003, when they introduced the highly popular all-day dining European Grand Café concept to London with The Wolseley restaurant on Piccadilly, achieving one of the highest turnovers of any individual restaurant in the UK. In December 2011, The Delaunay, a Grand Café with a mittel-European slant, opened on the corner of Aldwych and Drury Lane to high critical acclaim. It has been the most successful of Corbin and King’s openings to date in terms of revenue. Brasserie Zedel is due to open at the end of June 2012, just off Piccadilly Circus, and Colbert will open on Sloane Square in early autumn 2012. In 2006 they opened St Alban on Regent Street, selling the lease in 2009. That same year, they were involved in the opening of New York’s Monkey Bar. Prior to launching Rex Restaurant Associates, Corbin and King owned and managed some of London’s most famous restaurants, including Le Caprice (1981), The Ivy (1990) and J Sheekey 1997), under the umbrella of Caprice Holdings, which they sold in 1998, staying on as directors until 2002.
