Counter service at top speed: Meet Square for Restaurants.

Square for Restaurants

Run your restaurant how you’ve always wanted. (Faster.)

It’s here: our built-from-scratch platform of software, hardware, and payments that streamlines your whole restaurant operation. It’s built for your front counter and your back office. And it’s built for speed.

Now with online order integrations.

Access the largest network of online delivery services and diners in all 50 states, and see all your orders directly in your POS.

Faster ordering, faster lines.

Hold the pickles. Add extra sauce. Take orders the way customers talk with conversational ordering. Modifiers will automatically appear with items as you progress through an order, letting you work fast and accurately.

Make multiple menus. Manage them all on the fly.

From breakfast to lunch and seasonal specials, create all the menus you need and swap them out in a tap. Need to make changes? Be our guest—customize menus anytime, from anywhere.

Keep your point of sale secure with roles and permissions.

Assign roles to your team, like server or manager, and set their level of access and what they can do. Give everyone their own passcode so you can track who’s doing—and selling—what.

Easy and expedited reports for every little thing.

Track labor costs against sales

See how much you’re spending on labor and how it stacks up against sales. Know when to add more employees and when you can save.

Get data out of every dish

Get data on which items and modifiers customers love and which ones they hate. Seeing a lot of “no side salad”? Remove it—put that money elsewhere.

Multiple restaurants, one account.

Whether you run one or many restaurants, manage them all from the same account. Access and update all your menus, employees, and reports—plus make bulk changes that apply to multiple locations.

Hardware that holds up at top speed.
