Secure Networking, Deployed Fast, Supports Rapid Growth for Quick-Service Restaurant Group

“When you have a broad geographic foot-print, like GPS does, you need a vendor that can support locations across vast distances.”

Jim Barlow, Director of IT, GPS Hospitality

GPS Hospitality owns hundreds of Burger King, Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen, and Pizza Hut franchises. With an aggressive expansion policy, the company’s leadership relies on HonorBuilt for IT support. Each location that GPS acquires must be migrated to their technology within the first 90 days, a difficult task without a network infrastructure that enables centralized management across all locations.

HonorBuilt identified a solution: Fortinet and its suite of tools offered seamless integration – from the devices, to the network, to the management system. HonorBuilt was able to roll out the solution to 200 locations in only two months. Now, every GPS restaurant runs on the same standard network infrastructure. GPS’ management can make global changes across locations remotely, and they’re more confident in the security of their network.
