Axial Shift

Axial Shift, an Austin, TX-based restaurant operations software provider, raised $4M in Seed funding.

The round was led by Silverton Partners.

The company intends to use the funds to expand operations and its business reach.

Led by Justin Buckley, CEO and President, and Matt Woodings, CTO, Axial Shift is a restaurant operations software provider that works for the restaurant industry by creating gamified incentives that empower and engage frontline managers and staff, while providing actionable insights through real-time data from POS systems. Using the platform, managers can also run their shift from their phones, showing real time labor actuals vs forecast vs ideal. They can also understand tip percentages in real time, review sales mix, and see how targeted items are selling by team member or location.

The platform also includes integrated tools that allow operators to consolidate their current tech stack, such as solutions for tip pooling, improved online scheduling, messaging across the entire organization, time and attendance, and access to a marketplace that allows them to integrate with popular apps, such as Airtable, Google Apps, Slack, and more.

Customers include Mendocino Farms, El Arroyo, Chicken Express, Johnny Rockets and Sugar Factory.
