soul-searching and news from the other side
American Metro, a Shoreview-based supplier of cash registers and credit card processing equipment to major golf tournaments and other sporting events, is teeing up for rapid growth.
The company already provides registers to the U.S. Open and the PGA Championship, two of the four major tournaments in men’s professional golf, and supplied 210 events last year.
American Metro President Tim Mueller said the company is gearing up to serve merchants and concessionaires at 300 events this year and 500 in 2014 after having focused on refining its event service model over the past few years.
“We’ve taken it probably a little bit more conservatively than what we could have to make sure we have built the foundation properly,” Mueller said. “We feel like we’ve created a real stable launchpad and now we’re ready to actively go out and market the business.”
