Serving Those Who Serve Others
We get it. We get you and the hard work you put into every shift, every day. HotSchedules was born when two restaurateurs, David Cantu and Ray Pawlikowski, set out to help restaurants work smarter through technology. And almost 20 years later, that vision still exists today.
Like many startups, we saw a problem and set out to solve it. As time passed and this industry evolved, our customers turned to us to solve their biggest challenges with innovative technology.
We truly believe great things come from unlocking the very best in those who serve others. That’s why HotSchedules continues to provide the most loved, followed and used employee scheduling and labor management solution in the restaurant and hospitality industry.
For the customers who have been with us throughout this journey, we are forever grateful for your loyalty and support over the years – we have certainly come a long way.

And we are not stopping there. Will there ever be such a thing as a perfect shift? Maybe not. But we never stop working to get you as close as possible by developing the best tools in the industry that enable smarter insights, more intelligent workflow, and more engaged team members.
Let us know if you want to talk, you can reach us here. We’d love to learn more about your business, and how we may be able to help as we all work to leave our industry, and the people who work in it better than we found it.
We empower service-based organizations to master their operations, engage their teams and recapture work-life balance.
To provide the most trusted platform for empowering people and increasing their effectiveness as they serve others
We go beyond the expected to provide unparalleled experiences and help our customers do the same.
We started in a restaurant. Service of others – both externally and internally – is in our blood.
We never give up seeking creative ways to solve tough problems.
We believe in the power of the communities we create and serve, our community of team members and in giving back to the communities we live in.
This isn’t a just a job; it’s a calling, and we love it!
We do what we say we’re going to do. If something happens to prevent that, we determine the new course and communicate quickly.
