- Is Square the right fit for my Ghost Kitchen operation?
Square is a good fit for single and multi-location ghost kitchens, including restaurants starting their first ghost kitchen concept or restaurants that already have a brick and mortar business and are looking to expand into ghost kitchen operations. If you’re a restaurant owner or manager using Micros, Aloha, Harbortouch, POSitouch, Toast POS, Upserve, or another POS system or POS software, Square for Restaurants can likely fit your ghost kitchen needs at a lower cost.
- Which Square solutions are right for my Ghost Kitchen operation?
Square offers multiple solutions that can fit your ghost kitchen needs. We offer Square Online for online order setup and management, Square KDS for viewing, tracking, and fulfilling physical and online orders via digital tickets from the physical kitchen, and Restaurants POS for entering and processing dine-in orders. Each of these solutions can be purchased separately based on your individual needs. Or, for customers who need multiple KDS stations together with a more advanced point of sale, we recommend the Square for Restaurants Plus plan, which is a bundle that includes access to unlimited KDS devices, advanced POS features (like coursing and seating), advanced reporting (like shift and close of day reports), Square Team Plus for unlimited employees, and 24/7 Support.
- How much do these solutions cost?
