Mythical is a restaurant specialized in the preparation of hamburgers that began in January 2020 as a small place in the city of Mérida, Yucatán. The purpose of being more than fast food It led them not only to develop products recognized for their freshness and high quality, but also to innovate in their processes and services to create a memorable experience for their customers.
In this special article, we will introduce you to how this business integrated cutting-edge technology from the hand of Soft Restaurant® to grow successfully over the course of a year, today having two branches in the busiest area of the city and more than 20 people as part of your team.
How was the beginning of Mítica?
Mítica started in a 2x4 meter store with three hamburgers for sale: the Fired onion, classical and Mythical (the flagship and best-selling product). To date, its menu consists of seven hamburgers and the entrees section "To snack", in which they have five more products, in addition to the beverage section.
According to Abraham Josué Durán Solís, Manager of the branch located on García Lavín avenue, the main problems that arose when the Mítica project began focused on the conducting inventories, product costing and accounting.
“The first months we were trying to operate with another system, but it was very basic, it was only a point of sale, we could charge, we could get reports on how many products we had sold, but we could not inventory, we could not record our supplies, purchases, pay, everything had to be separate, and because of the experience that I had before with Soft Restaurant®, I suggested that we change to a better operating system ”, said the branch manager.
Both the business owner and Durán Solís had already worked with Soft Restaurant® in other establishments, so they knew the convenience and need to use a system like this in Mítica.
What Soft Restaurant® products have you implemented in the restaurant?
In addition to incorporating Soft Restaurant® in two points of sale for service in the dining room, quick service and at home, Mítica has implemented other technologies aimed at reducing operating times, improving the efficiency of its production and enriching the experience of its customers, such as:
Mítica has several production monitors in which the orders captured from the point of sale are reflected instantly, speeding up order preparation time.
"The fact that the kitchen is connected to the cash register and that we do not have to pass physical orders helps a lot to the operational issue because it reduces the times in which a hamburger comes out," said Durán Solís.
Soft Restaurant® e-Delivery online ordering platform
Mítica has its own Soft Restaurant® platform eDelivery, specialized in order management online at home and to pick up, modality that has gained ground among consumers in the last year.
“Sometimes because of the rush we cannot answer the phone and the application of eDelivery It has helped us a lot because the orders are already falling, literally. We no longer have to take about 10 minutes to take an order, ask for a name, address, telephone number ... all that comes when the client registers ”, indicated the Branch Manager.

To adapt to the new model of home sales, Mítica incorporated into its Ordatic system, a tool that allows registering the orders received through third-party applications - such as Rappi, UberEats and Didi - in the software restaurateur automatically.
“Sometimes we would stand up to three hours entering all the Rappi's, because it was something you had to do manually, and the Ordatic platform has helped us a lot because the Rappi order is already automatic. All we have to do is print and that, in operational matters, has also reduced a lot of time ”.
During the pandemic, diner attendance at the establishment fell more than 70 percent, while online orders through the e-Delivery platform and third-party delivery applications grew by up to 300 percent, according to with Durán Solís.
With the economic reactivation, Mítica incorporated a new ingredient to its establishment to offer a faster and safer service for diners: the self-service kiosk from Soft Restaurant®.
