FRIENDLY ICE CREAM SELECTS FISHER

 ATLANTA, March 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Fisher Business Systems, Inc., dba Fisher Restaurant Systems, announced today that it has been selected by Friendly Ice Cream Corporation of Wilbraham, Mass., as the software vendor for its restaurant point-of-sale system.
 The Fisher touch screen system will be installed in a minimum of 500 of the 775 Friendly's Restaurants throughout the United States. The value of the contract is estimated to be $650,000 for the software plus Fisher services.
 Andy DeCusati, senior director of MIS for Friendly's, said: "We looked at all of the software-based POS systems on the market and found Fisher to be best suited for our specific needs. Their use of 4GL technology as their development environment was an important factor in our selection, for it allows the Fisher System to have an extremely high level of flexibility and maintainability." Friendly plans on implementing the system over the next two years.
 The Fisher System, known as the Second Generation of Fisher, has been in development for over two years, and represents the state-of-the- art in restaurant software. It is designed to meet the needs of many types of restaurant operations and is installed in cafeteria, walk-up and full-service restaurants. The Fisher System utilizes a local area network with PCs as the server work stations and manager's terminal. Touch screens are used by servers and cashiers to perform their data entry operation.
 "We are all very proud to be chosen by Friendly's for this project which will generate significant revenues for Fisher," said Larry Fisher, chairman of Fisher Restaurant Systems. "We believe in business partnerships, and look forward to participating in the success of this venture. It is gratifying to have the design of our new system validated by one of the largest full-service restaurant chains in the country. We expect this project to lead to many others this year."
