If you’ve worked at a restaurant, coffee shop or other retailer, you might know ShopKeep.

The company behind a point-of-sale system boasts more than 18,000 customers, and while its Brooklyn ties are fading — now based in SoHo but founded in 2008 by Brooklyn retailer Jason Richelson — it’s worth tracking them here.
