A POS System for the Modern World

Empoweing your business with a future proof POS

The executives of Mountain Mike’s pizza were frustrated by the POS options available on the market. Adora Founder & CEO Sharli Younan decided to take matters into his own hands. After experiencing how POS systems failed to meet the technology needs of restaurants in the modern world, and how they lacked the ability to scale to work for multiple store franchises, Sharli set out to create a sleeker, more effective POS.
What Are The True Costs to Consider When You Choose Your POS?
Sharli’s goals for Adora were ambitious—develop a POS system that:
Five years later, we’ve accomplished all of our goals and more. We’ve created a system that works seamlessly, takes just 15 minutes of training for employees to learn, and can run on any browser.
We’re constantly evolving, scaling, and adding new features. We understand how important your POS system is to your restaurant, and we’re here to grow with your business.
