Meet Our Heroes

Behind every great restaurant brand stands a posse of hidden heroes who work hard to maintain Quality and Operational Excellence.


CMX has been a tremendous partner to work with. Our operating environment is incredibly complex; we’re a global brand with locations around the world, our menu is diverse and we source from thousands of suppliers. It’s a tough problem to tackle and CMX was the right choice for us. With their platform, Burger King, Tim Hortons, and Popeyes have continued to aggressively scale, while maintaining control and oversight over supplier and product quality.

Diego Beamonte
Head of Quality Assurance for Restaurant Brands International

As we approach 1,200 locations, I couldn't even imagine trying to keep an eye on brand standards and food safety without a platform like ActivityStudio® in place. And for our corporate staff, be it at the Executive or Vice President level, to have this level of visibility into our opportunities and our strengths and areas that need improvement has been invaluable.

Rich Goodman

The impact on Operational Excellence has been impressive and immediate. We consider ActivityStudio® to be a game-changer. With ActivityStudio® we are better able to manage and maintain high-quality standards and consistency across all of our sports bars. ActivityStudio’s intuitive interface makes it very easy for our team to develop and execute programs to ensure all sports bars are compliant and operating with consistency.

Our operators leverage the data from these programs to inform decisions in the restaurants and make operational changes. They can look at the results in assessments to identify training gaps and understand where they may need to spend more time training their team.

Aaron Clark
Senior Project Specialist, Restaurant Food Safety Team at Chick-fil-A

ActivityStudio® is already proving to be a huge stride forward for us in terms of ease of use and efficiency. We went through an exhaustive search and evaluation, reviewing nearly 20 different solutions before choosing to work with CMX. ActivityStudio’s user experience, user interface, and capabilities are far superior to everything else out there. 

Kevin McCullough
Safety & Risk Team Lead at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®

Our decision simply came down to ActivityStudio® and CMX as a partner, being a better fit for our business. My jaw dropped when I saw how integrated ActivityStudio® already was – so many things are automatically taken care of through simple configurations and automation, What used to take hours can be accomplished in minutes. And with one platform, we have one system and no silos.
