A Wish Granted


Lucky Wishbone is the kind of restaurant that inspires passionate reviews from its customers. The pan-fried chicken, hand-formed cheeseburgers and fresh milkshakes are legendary, and its down-home, family-friendly atmosphere has brought generations of repeat visitors since 1955.

Praises fLucky Wishbone 1rom Lucky Wishbone fans, as posted on Facebook: “If you don’t love it, you’ve never been there! One of the best atmospheres in Anchorage!! Well worth the drive into town for the best fried chicken around.”

Or how about: “Although most will praise the Bone for hot French fries, you should not pass on the cold, tart-sweet cole slaw. Truth is you need to plan ahead so you still have room for a chocolate malt and coffee …”

And then there’s: “Amazing food and service all these years!!!!! I've been going there since I was the age of my grandson and can always count on excellent food and service...”

Fast, reliable service – that’s a key component to keeping those customers coming back. And that’s where Skurla’s POS Solutions can make a difference.

When Lucky Wishbone’s owners upgraded to MobileBytes for their point-of-sale system, they presented a unique situation to our programmer: They needed to route in-house orders differently from takeout orders - depending on the workstation location. Even with seven workstations plus a drive-through-window station, this was a challenge Jesse Dison was able to accept.

The owners and staff alike have been thrilled with the new system’s capabiliLucky Wishbone 2ties. And transitioning from the previous POS system has been smooth – the busy staff has found MobileBytes incredibly easy to use. The owners are also excited about moving toward online ordering – they know that even in a restaurant founded on tradition, new technology brings more opportunities to serve customers better.
