Lavu opened their new Downtown Albuquerque Headquarters today, where the leading point-of-sale system provider hopes to continue to grow.  Lavu is the world’s leading mobile point-of-sale system for restaurants and bars and employs 170 people in three offices located in Albuquerque, NM, Miami, Florida, Hyderabad, India.  Lavu products can be found in 93 countries and the company has over 6,000 customers.

“We are excited that Lavu has been able to grow by leaps and bounds in our home state of New Mexico,” stated Saleem S. Khatri, Chief Executive Officer of Lavu Inc.  “Our company was founded in Albuquerque and has flourished because of our local talent and workforce.  Lavu’ers bring a customer first approach, along with persistence and creativity to problem solving.  This is exactly why Lavu has transformed from merely a cash-register on an iPad to an operating system for restaurants.  We are committed to our presence in New Mexico and are excited to offer best in class point-of-sale technology globally.”

Keeping a strong downtown presence for the company is going to continue to bolster the Albuquerque economic environment.

“I’m beyond thrilled by the success of this homegrown New Mexico business,” Governor Lujan Grisham said.  “More than 90 countries, six continents, an unquestioned leader in their field in less than a decade—Lavu is a shining example of New Mexican ingenuity and business savvy.  I’m proud to help them usher in these new offices and can’t wait to see what they do next.”

“I am so grateful that Lavu has chosen to keep their world-class operations right here in the heart of downtown Albuquerque,” stated Mayor Tim Keller.  “They are a proven leader in the industry and have provided numerous job opportunities in the tech field for Burqueños.  With incredible growth in such a short amount of time, we are looking forward to what they do next.”

Lavu will be occupying 17,700 square feet in the downtown Hyatt building and will house 110 employees in the new space.
