Trade in workarounds for a POS that just works
  • It shouldn’t take minutes to ring in that decaf latte with oat milk and a pump of vanilla. Open View ordering helps you do it quickly and accurately.
  • Keep BOH organized with a Kitchen Display Screen that keeps track of everything (from omelets to espressos) without paper tickets.
  • 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.
Give your margins a jolt
  • Attract more of the on-the-go crowd with Online Ordering and the Toast TakeOut app.
  • Expand your catering business with tools that simplify ordering and invoicing for you and the customer. 
  • Sell more shirts, mugs, and beans without using a separate device. Restaurant Retail makes it easy to build your brand by selling curated goods.
Become your community’s daily ritual
  • Reward your regulars (and create more of them) with an integrated Loyalty program that keeps you #1 in their rotation.
  • 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”

Joe Ferrara

Director of Partnerships & Catering Maman

“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.”

Steven Rennau

Director of Operations Toni Patisserie & Cafe

“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.”

Shayna Ferullo

Founder and Owner Snowy Owl

“[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.”
