					                  HotSchedules Celebrates 10 Years of Serving the Restaurant
               Industry with Innovative, Web-Based Labor Management Solutions

     The pioneer of online restaurant labor management proudly marks its 10th anniversary;
            HotSchedules has become an institution in more than 5,000 restaurants
                               with over 450,000 users and counting

Austin, TX – June 23, 2010 – Ten years ago, HotSchedules co-founders, Ray Pawlikowski and David
Cantu had the idea to provide online scheduling solutions to the restaurant industry - allowing
employees to more easily gain access to their schedules and managers to more quickly post and edit
employee schedules – all with the convenience of online access. HotSchedules officially incorporated in
1999, then followed with the release of its first online scheduling solution in 2000. Shortly after,
HotSchedules signed its first customer, P.F. Chang’s – and the rest, as they say, is history.

For the entire HotSchedules team, 2010 marks a milestone achievement for the company, celebrating its
10th anniversary, and paving the way for continued innovation of on-demand labor management tools
for the fast-paced restaurant industry.

“HotSchedules was the first to market a powerful, flexible and cost-effective web-based labor employee
scheduling solution targeted specifically for restaurants. Prior to that, restaurants all managed their
schedules with a slow, cumbersome paper-based system,” said Ray Pawlikowski, president and CEO,

Over the past decade, HotSchedules has grown from offering the easiest and most accessible employee
scheduling solutions to providing a full range of labor management tools for restaurants to control labor
costs and foster better communication and employee satisfaction. “Not only can HotSchedules
customers more conveniently create and check their weekly schedules, but they can also more
accurately track and analyze labor and control overtime expenses,” said Pawlikowski. “Employee
scheduling is a core part of our offerings, but our capabilities go far beyond just that.”

“HotSchedules has been an instrumental tool for our business,” said Darrin Heisey, Director of IT,
Sonny’s BBQ. “It provides our team members with easy access to schedules and instant updates, and
enables team members to change or pick-up shifts with ease. Additionally, it has allowed our executive
staff to directly communicate with those on the frontlines easily and efficiently. Congratulations to
HotSchedules for 10 years of innovation in the restaurant industry, and we look forward to working with
them for years to come.”

Year after year, HotSchedules has experienced steady growth, which the company attributes to the
continued quality and innovation of its labor management tools, as well as its unwavering commitment
to providing each and every one of its customers with the best in support and training.

To better cater to the lifestyle of its Generation-Y user-base, HotSchedules has recently expanded its
external communications to various social media outlets, including a company blog, Twitter, YouTube,
LinkedIn, and a Facebook page. As part of the 10th anniversary celebration, HotSchedules is hosting a
contest through Facebook – “10,000 Facebook Fans by 10/10/10” - to encourage HotSchedules users to
“Like” HotSchedules on Facebook and provide the company with valuable feedback on how
HotSchedules can continue to improve its products and service.

“In 10 short years, HotSchedules is proud to be considered the leading provider of online employee
scheduling and labor management solutions for restaurant businesses of all sizes,” said Pawlikowski.
“For all of our customers, we are more than just a vendor - we have become an integral part of their
company culture. If we can help each and every one of our customers add to their bottom line and
make their restaurants a better place to work, then I know that we’ve done our job. Here’s to another
10 years!”
