 GREENSBURG, Pa., Oct. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Sulcus Computer Corp. (AMEX: SUL) will install Sulcus Hospitality's Squirrel Point of Sale systems in 130 Chi Chi's Restaurants over the next three calendar years with an estimated value, after discounts and trade-ins, of $4 million, Jeffrey S. Ratner, chairman and chief executive officer, announced today.
 Chi Chi's, a subsidiary of Food Maker, Inc., operates 200 restaurants with annual volume of $480 million and has been installing Squirrel Touch Screen Point of Sale systems in new stores for a year and a half. Chi Chi's will commence a program to standardize new locations and upgrade existing facilities and plans to equip 34 stores in 1993, 48 in 1994 and 48 in 1995. The agreement provides substantial discounts, upgrades and trade-ins of prior equipment with payback penalties if the system quantities and roll out schedules are not met.

We are pleased to extend our relationship and service to Chi Chi's which is one of our key customers handled under our Premier/National and International Accounts program. As our list of prestige customers continues to expand, greater emphasis is being given to increasing the penetration of Sulcus products among existing customers who can benefit from our premier products and services in their multiple properties in the hospitality field."
