Stay out of the weeds with a POS built for hospitality

From service to reporting and beyond, you'll always be one step ahead of whatever's next.

Save time and space with gear that’s meant for bars
  • It shouldn’t take minutes to ring in a house vodka. Now you can do it with a few taps and get on to your next drink.
  • Hardware designed to withstand everyday spills and dings, and last calls.
  • Items 86 themselves automatically, so no one has to check on how many cans are left.
  • Pre-auth cards so you don’t have to hold them behind the bar. Charge and add gratuity if guests don’t close out.
Turn three-deep lines into light work
  • Handhelds free you up to start and close tabs anywhere in the bar — a lifesaver during peak volume.
  • Let guests buy another round without waiting. QR code ordering with Toast Mobile Order and Pay™ makes it easy.
  • Internet down? Offline Mode lets you keep taking cards so guests don’t have to find an ATM.
Make every square foot more profitable
  • Find out which sections drive the most revenue with detailed reporting.
  • Keep costs under control with inventory tech that keeps everyone honest.
  • Have a kitchen? Ramp up your takeout business with commission-free online ordering.
  • Retain your best bartenders with consistently higher tips thanks to guest-facing displays, handhelds, and QR code ordering.

“It’s almost like having three additional employees.”

Whether you’re focused on speed, craft, or both, you can do it more efficiently.

"Having Toast all-in-one system - it’s almost like having three additional employees. [It gives] me time to focus on creating great recipes and sourcing good beer."

Ilya Alter

"Within the seven stores, we have a diverse makeup from 95% retail to-go sales from 95% on-premise draft beer. Talking to a human got me more comfortable with the idea that Toast would be able to manage the breadth of our business uses."
