A popular and expanding Mexican food chain, Poncho 8 was facing issues with queues and customer waiting times during its peak periods. Since long queues could lead to a reduction in sales and customer satisfaction, it was of paramount importance to Poncho 8 to find a retail technology solution. The company wanted to implement a kiosk solution that would enable customers to quickly and easily select and pay for their menu choices, enhancing customer engagement and increasing turnover.


Poncho 8 engaged innovative retail solutions provider Box Technologies to provide the kiosks. The Cielo KX-100 was the perfect solution for Poncho 8’s requirements. Highly durable with a 
splash-proof, robust screen, the KX-100 is ideal for fast-paced and potentially messy restaurant environments. It also supports a fully integrated Chip and PIN reader for secure payments, as well as a receipt printer for proof of purchase – both of which were essential components of a queue-busting solution for Poncho 8.


In collaboration with Box Technologies, providing extensive experience in retail technology solutions, Poncho 8 was the first burrito chain to custom-build and install a self-service Chip and PIN payment kiosk. The company’s new system ensures that its ambition and expansion is matched with the latest time-saving technology. Poncho 8 have already seen an additional 4% increase in processed orders thanks to their KX-100 installation, and are planning to incorporate more kiosks in their other stores.
