Customer-facing technology in restaurants is now an everyday part of the dining experience for many QSRs, FSRs, and even full-service concepts around the world. Whether it’s a self-ordering kiosk, a stationary terminal that flips to face a customer during counter service, or small handheld tablets brought to the table by a server like Toast Go, these modern, customer-facing point-of-sale systems have the potential to make a major impact on your restaurant’s bottom line. Whether you’re a QSR, FSR, or full-service restaurant, putting your point-of-sale system in the guests’ hands can increase the money in yours. Here are some ways to see return on investment from customer-facing POS tablets. 1. Save Money (and Trees) with Digital Receipts It’s absolutely baffling to me that we’re still printing paper receipts. Everything else we do is electronic: banking, navigation, dating, grocery shopping, catching a cab. And yet, at the end of our meal, we’re still handed a flimsy slip of paper that goes directly into our pocket and doesn’t appear again until it’s crumpled and damp at the bottom of the washing machine.

Article | April 7, 2020

Despite strong demand for basic foods like dairy products amid the coronavirus pandemic, the milk supply chain has seen a host of disruptions that are preventing dairy farmers from getting their products to market.
