(TSXV: SSC) (OTC Pink: SSCFF) (FSE: R3W) (the Company) is pleased to announce that its UK subsidiary has received a purchase order for installation of its proprietary optimization technology at 16 casual dining restaurants.

Ted Konyi, CEO, commented "this follow on Purchase Order represents significant additional revenue for the UK subsidiary of the Company. We have worked diligently to bring this business forward and expect that this order should be followed by many more with this customer. The successful installation has already generated interest from others in this market vertical of restaurants and other prepared food establishments."

This National Restaurant Chain operates over 500 locations in the UK, represented by 8 different brands, primarily in the casual dining space. The Chain continues to grow organically through additional locations and by way of acquisition.
