The money was raised in the form of equity from one investor, according to the filing. The company still has $1 million left to raise.

The Raleigh-based company designs scheduling software for restaurants. Its current customers include Denny’s, Sir Walter Coffee, Fishbones and Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts, among others.

The software is usable across all mobile platforms, lets employees and managers handle time-off requests and is capable of sending text and e-mail alerts.

The company offers a one-month free trial to businesses. Pricing is based upon how many staff members a restaurant employs.

For example, a restaurant with zero to 19 users of the software will pay $25 per month while a restaurant with 60 to 79 users will pay $60 per month.

Benjamin Wingrove, founder of Schedule Pop, currently works as the president of revenue and partnerships at Etix. He also co-owns Hopscotch Music Festival, an annual Raleigh-based music festival.

He received his MBA from Wake Forest University and his BA in business administration from UNC-Chapel Hill.
