Get out of the weeds of daily operations — and out from behind the bar

Insights and cloud-based connection keep you in the know and in control from anywhere.

Your bartenders’ best friend
  • Take orders at the bar or at tables with handhelds — a lifesaver during happy hour.
  • Let guests buy another round, without waiting, with Toast’s Mobile Order and Pay.
  • Give your bartenders peace of mind that they’ll get the tips they earned with Toast Tips Manager.
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.
Make every square foot more profitable
  • Pick your favorite alcohol inventory tracker with our ecosystem of 200+ integrations.
  • Get a comprehensive view of real-time sales and labor data to make informed decisions in the moment, no matter where you are with Toast Now.
  • Experiment with selling your brewery merch with Toast Retail or hosting events with Toast Catering and Events.
