In conjunction with the Restaurant Leadership Conference (RLC), Epson America, Inc., a leading supplier of value-added Point of Sale (POS) solutions, and Spendgo, provider of personalized customer engagement solutions for stores, mobile apps and e-commerce, teamed up to help raise funds for No Kid Hungry, this year’s RLC Spotlight Charity. No Kid Hungry spearheads a restaurant-led campaign—Dine Out for No Kid Hungry—to raise funds to ensure all kids in America get healthy meals every day. RLC took place April 9-12, at the JW Marriott Phoenix, AZ.
Epson and Spendgo collaborated with a Starbucks shop at the JW Marriott. For each customer who keyed his or her phone number into Spendgo’s application while ordering a drink at the shop, Epson and Spendgo together donated $1. In turn, customers could earn a free drink.
More than 2000 transactions took place. Epson’s OmniLink® TM-T88V-i intelligent printer for mobile POS and cloud services was the receipt printer to support the capture of transactional data supporting the Spendgo solution.

“As RLC conference sponsors, Spendgo and Epson helped contribute to our cause in a meaningful way,” said Diana Hovey, senior director of Dine Out for No Kid Hungry.
“We appreciate the time and effort both companies have put into increasing awareness and making our fundraising a great success.”
Since its launch in 2008, restaurants have raised $46 million in support of No Kid Hungry. Dine Out for No Kid Hungry is a national fundraising event that brings together thousands of restaurants and millions of consumers to help raise funds for and awareness for ending childhood hunger in America. At RLC, participating restaurants engaged their guests through valuable promotions and rewards.
