Founded in 2020, Big Penny Social is a venue that serves as a pub, arts center and town square for the residents of Walthamstow, London. It’s the eponymously-named company’s flagship venue, boasting approximately 35,000ft2, and serving up to 1,400 people at any given time.
With a background in both hospitality and product innovation, it was natural that founder Michael-George Hemus looked to technology to optimize the venue’s operation and management.
“Smart technologies have already had a transformative effect in many aspects of our personal and professional lives,” commented Michael George. “It’s common sense to look for tech-enabled solutions to automate time-consuming manual tasks, particularly if technologies reliably provide accurate data streams that can feed into business decision-making.”
