The Stars Align with New York City’s Nerai & Sourcery

Nerai, a place reality star Kim Kardashian has been spotted at more than once, is an upscale Greek restaurant in New York City, cofounded and managed by Spiro Menegatos.

Spiro graduated from Stern Business School at New York University and left the finance world to pursue Nerai, which he opened in 2013. His goal was to create a restaurant that embodied the warmth of traditional Greek hospitality. A restaurant that felt like home. With Nerai, he did just that, and his Midtown restaurant began to thrive. The more success Nerai found the busier Spiro got, and with that came new challenges.

Enter Sourcery

Making Nerai the best customer experience possible is Spiro’s main concern. Needing to maintain quality backend work was crucial to the business. So he chose Sourcery as his back of house assistant, “Sourcery has allowed me to focus on more important aspects of my business. I can trust Sourcery to take the paperwork off my hands, which is a solid day’s work, and keep my payments accurate.”

With the advent of smartphones, you’re never wondering about anything for too long before you whip out your phone and find the answer. Why should your restaurant be any different? Wondering how much tomatoes were from your vendor last year? Do an instant search with your Sourcery app and see your full history with that vendor.

“I love Sourcery because with the click of a mouse I can search invoices and products without having to dig up files.” — Spiro Menegatos owner of Nerai

Spiro found new freedom with Sourcery, “I love Sourcery because with the click of a mouse I can search invoices and products without having to dig up files.” Now he just needs someone to take those file cabinets off his hands.

Sourcery allows you to take back hours of administrative work. And instead, use that time to do what you do best — run a great restaurant and cater to your guests. And you never know, that extra time on your hands could lead to celebrity patronage.

If you think about it, mathematically, Kim Kardashian is a big Sourcery fan. Nerai loves Sourcery. Kim Kardashian loves Nerai. If A = B and B = C, then, by the transitive property, Kim Kardashian loves Sourcery. So we’ve got that going for us, which is nice.
