Irvine-based accounting software firm Restaurant365 has laid off staff in response an expected sales downturn to the coronavirus and its impact on the restaurant industry.
The cuts were a “significant chunk, though not 50 percent” of its workforce, Chief Executive Tony Smith told the Business Journal Friday.
Restaurant365 also postponed a new capital raise. Last June, it raised $88 million.
The company now has north of 200 employees split between its Irvine headquarters and Austin, Texas office; it had 400 prior to the layoffs.
It’s offering information at its website on COVID-19 and federal relief for restaurants and industry workers.
