Square Launches POS for Restaurants
Square Inc. launched Square for Restaurants, a fully integrated point of sale (POS). It is the company’s first solution built to serve full-service restaurants.
Square will also integrate Caviar directly into Square for Restaurants, combining the first-party ordering platform and POS.
Square for Restaurants enables fast, accurate operations for both the front and back of house. It’s cloud-based and customizable for however a restaurant is run, letting managers easily update menus and floor layouts remotely across multiple terminals and locations. New conversational ordering enables wait staff to place orders quickly and intuitively, the way diners speak. It also offers built-in employee management to enable staff time and performance tracking, tip splitting, fraud protection and more.
Businesses using Caviar and Square for Restaurants will also be able to see delivery and pickup orders directly within their POS— speeding up operations, reducing incorrect orders, eliminating the clutter of excess tablets, and giving restaurants an omnichannel view of their sales and diner base.
More than 100 restaurants and hospitality groups across the U.S. have already been using Square for Restaurants, including Bar Agricole in San Francisco, Boke Bowl in Portland, Oregon, The Populist in Denver, Greca in New York City, and Philadelphia’s CookNSolo group, which has implemented Caviar integration at Rooster Soup Co.
