Erbert & Gerbert's

Erbert & Gerbert's was founded in 1988 in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, by Kevin and Beth Schippers, who named the business after two characters from a series of children's stories.

Throughout the years, Erbert & Gerbert's has expanded its presence through franchising, growing to over 70 locations across the country. The brand emphasizes a friendly and quirky image, offering unique and flavorful sandwiches for customers of all ages.  With a focus on delivering quality ingredients and a memorable dining experience, Erbert & Gerbert's continues to delight sandwich enthusiasts and maintain a loyal customer base.



Erbert & Gerbert's had long relied on self-delivery since its founding, but decided to explore third-party delivery options to make sure that they were not missing out on an opportunity.

They initially used another online order aggregator for their POS integration needs, but faced challenges in meeting particular requirements - specifically around controlling their third-party platform pricing and markups. Seeking an alternative solution, they switched to ItsaCheckmate at the recommendation of their POS provider Revel.

When implementing ItsaCheckmate, Erbert & Gerbert's initially ran a pilot program across their corporate stores. During the program, they utilized ItsaCheckmate to integrate third-party delivery platforms including DoorDash, UberEats, & GrubHub with their Revel POS - Allowing them to streamline their location's order and menu management processes.

Following the successful pilot program, Erbert & Gerbert's designated ItsaCheckmate as their official integration partner for their franchise locations. As a result, 80% of their total locations now use ItsaCheckmate.


Erbert & Gerbert's successfully optimized their online presence on the top three ordering platforms, resulting in a surge of new customers and a significant boost in revenue.



Through ItsaCheckmate, Erbert & Gerbert's swiftly expanded onto various digital sales platforms, resulting in a remarkable milestone. About 20% of their locations' total sales are seamlessly managed through ItsaCheckmate.
