Wally Mostafa, owner of Bekya, came from running a 60-seat eatery to a 150-seat restaurant. With more than twice the capacity, Wally realised that the dynamics of running Bekya were more demanding. “We’ve had to look at how we roster, how we manage, how we hire, our deliveries, how much we order – it’s just taken it to another level” Wally explained.


Bekya adopted Lightspeed to help facilitate their day-to-day. In addition to improving communications between the front and back-of-house, Lightspeed also helped Wally understand his restaurant’s purchasing and consumption patterns. Bekya’s growth also meant more staff on the payroll which they easily managed with Lightspeed’s employee management integration: Deputy.

“Lightspeed made it quite simple to discover and implement any changes that we needed to.”
