The Moby Dick House of Kabob back story
The idea was to base the cuisine around a traditional clay oven like the kind used in his home country of Iran. As a result, the traditions of Persian cuisine drove impressive growth. In 2017, Moby Dick opened its 23rd location in the Washington, DC area. With rapid growth came the need to choose a more sophisticated business management system.
Now the team sees operations, accounting, and inventory information all in one place. The new approach allows for integrations, and is helping Moby Dick continue to scale the business.
