160-year baking tradition meets innovative payment methods: Stangengrüner Mühlenbäckerei and EVO Payments

EVO Payments supports the traditional company Stangengrüner Mühlenbäckerei AG with modern card terminal technology for contactless payments

Hygienic, secure and fast payment - especially since the beginning of the pandemic, the desire of customers to be able to pay contactless and without cash at the bakery has grown increasingly. Stangengrüner Mühlenbäckerei AG also recognized this trend at an early stage and has therefore been working with the Cologne-based full-service provider EVO Payments in its more than 100 stores since March 2018.

In this way, the traditional company with headquarters in Lengenfeld in the Vogtland region combines its experience from 160 years of artisan baking with state-of-the-art payment solutions at the POS in Saxony, Thuringia, Bavaria and Saxony-Anhalt. In addition to the finest baked goods and confectionery products, the approximately 450 employees in the branches can also offer their customers the best possible service for cashless payment transactions.

"Through our partnership with EVO Payments and the use of modern card terminals, we can guarantee our customers the highest level of security and contemporary, hygienic standards when paying," says Ronny Kretzschmar, Head of Controlling at Stangengrüner Bäckerei AG. In the long term, he said, the company wants to grow together, expand further locations and also successfully equip subsequent branches with the support of EVO Payments as a reliable "partner at eye level" in cashless payments.

"Corona has strongly pushed the demand for cashless and contactless payments in bakeries. Therefore, we see enormous potential in the bakery industry to enable more efficient processing of payment transactions through the use of innovative card terminal technology and in this way contribute to the company's success in the long term," says Kristina Kierner, Head of Sales & Marketing at EVO Payments.
