Trade in workarounds for a POS that just works

- Internet down? Offline Mode lets you keep taking orders so guests don’t run to the nearest chain.
- Speed up the line with kiosks, Mobile Order & Pay, and Order Ready Boards.

- Support local causes with Fundraising — a simple option that lets guests round up their check for charity.
- Love a BOGO deal? How about half-off pastries? Offers Hub lets you promote custom deals to bring in business when things are slow.
- Get everything you need in one place with 200+ integrations and food/beverage supplier partners.
"Toast made it so much easier for us to grow"
Join thousands of cafes and bakeries brewing up great service without the technical headaches.
“[Toast] made it so much easier for us to grow and I think without without a partner like Toast, it would have been very complex to grow that fast”
“As a bakery, Toast has been a game-changer. With Catering Online Ordering, the entire team saves time. It gives us a bit more control as we can set longer lead times and higher minimum order size.”
“Having [Restaurant Retail] gives us much more confidence in adding new SKUs to our shelves and not having to explain to every person that we hire where to find it in the system.”
“[The guest-facing display allows us] to pool our tips, so some locations would originally see $4 per hour in tips and are now seeing up to $10 per hour. Our tips have more than doubled.”
