Toast POS Outperforms Basic Systems

When restaurateurs take their concepts from "side hustle" to "professional", they ditch their basic systems like Square, Clover, and Harbortouch to partner with a platform that can scale with their business.

The Goat & Vine outgrew their Clover system

“We were opening a new business and went with the cheapest option. But it became very clear to us... that Clover couldn’t keep pace with our business. It may be a good solution for a small retail store, but when you’re dealing with a high-volume restaurant, Clover’s functionality leaves much to be desired.”

Considering swapping out your basic system?

Your restaurant deserves the best, and a barebones POS won't cut it whether you're in growth mode or you need to jumpstart your restaurant's efficiency. Trade up to a platform that can support your whole business.

Don't cut corners when it comes to your business. Choose a reliable platform that you won't outgrow.

Your technology needs can change quickly as you scale your restaurant. But no matter your size, your POS system always has to work. Our reliable, scalable platform will be there for you as your business grows, and it's easy to add new products and partner integrations along the way.
