Introducing Square for Restaurants

square for restaurants

From order changes to tip splitting, today’s restaurants are looking for a better solution.

That’s why we’re introducing Square for Restaurants, our first fully integrated point of sale that matches the pace, complexity, and specific needs of restaurants. Now the speed and ease of use that Square is known for is available to all types of larger restaurants, bars, and lounges.

Caviar, Square’s robust food ordering platform, will also be integrated directly into Square for Restaurants in summer 2018, making Square the only company to own both the ordering platform and point of sale.

“There’s always going to be curveballs that the restaurant life throws at you — Square for Restaurants is not one of them. It’s robust while retaining that trademark Square elegance and hassle-free service,” said Michael Solomonov and Steve Cook, cofounders of CookNSolo Restaurant Partners.

“At Rooster Soup Co., Caviar has long been an important growth lever for the business, so the fact that we can now have Caviar orders integrated right into the point of sale is a game changer.”
