SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul 31, 2018--Revel Systems, a feature-rich Point of Sale and business platform, is excited to announce that Revel’s Restaurant Showdown is open for submissions. The Restaurant Showdown is a competition to find the best restaurant pitch and business plan, where the winner walks away with $10,000 and a year’s subscription to a full suite of Revel technology to help get them up and running.

The Restaurant Showdown encourages restaurant owners and aspiring restaurateurs to submit an online pitch outlining how $10,000 could be used to launch or improve their restaurant. The top pitches will go head to head in a multi-part competition at Revel’s annual user conference, Revelry 2018, happening September 6th and 7th in San Francisco.

The contestants will deliver their pitches to a panel of judges, including Revel executives, notable restaurateurs, and our celebrity guest judge – Carla Hall, former co-host of The Chew and Top Chef competitor. Carla Hall is a celebrated chef, best selling author and television personality; Revel is delighted that she will be helping to decide the winner of The Restaurant Showdown.

Last year’s Restaurant Showdown winner, Cinthya Cisneros, won over the crowd and judges with her Napa-based brewery and boozy pastry concept, La Cheve. Cisneros plans to open the doors to her restaurant in early 2019.

“With the support of Revel, my dream is soon to be a reality,” says Cinthya Cisneros. “It truly takes a tribe to get a beautiful project like this going, and I am thrilled Revel has joined our familia’s tribe. I can’t thank the team enough for getting me closer to opening the doors to La Cheve.”

Beginning with a small ice cream shop as its first client, Revel continues to empower entrepreneurs. Since 2010, Revel has supported restaurants of all sizes with a Point of Sale and platform that streamlines the back of house and front of house, drives the customer experience, and provides revenue generating tools.

Submissions are being accepted at now through the August 10th. For more information, visit
