We’ve all ordered food online or other goods through our phones. We want to empower small brands to compete with national brands. We’re out there fighting for the little guys.

– Steven Edwards, Co-Founder at Hazlnut

With a background in mechanical engineering, Steven Edwards has always had a desire to create something. After seeing the growth of iPhones and smartphones, Edwards saw the potential of having businesses reach their customers through the phones in their pockets.

“I’ve had some coding background and wanted to make apps for the digital economy. Hazlnut has grown in the last 3 years to serve restaurants across the United States and processes hundreds of thousands of customer transactions,” said Edwards.

Richard Sikes, Co-Founder at Hazlnut, has a different story. Sikes has a background in finance and is a Certified Financial Analyst. He found that in his finance career, he was using software to automate business.

“With software, if you can envision it, you can build it. I have a lot of fun with what we’re doing. What we do is we come in and help lift up small businesses to compete with bigger brands like Starbucks and Chipotle,” said Richard.

Hazlnut connects restaurants directly to customers through e-commerce, online sales, and point of sale kiosks. This saves time for employees so that they don’t have to pick up the phone as often and can focus on who they are serving in stores. Wait time decreases and every order can be filled faster. Hazlnut has been in business for 3 years and continues to grow.
