“We’re a quickly-growing fast casual restaurant with multiple locations in the heart of Manhattan. Our kitchen space is small, and our staff needs to move quickly. Square’s Android KDS helps us with easy-to-tap tickets and instant order details. The performance is great.”
Co-Owner, BAO Tea House
“The KDS system that Square has put out there is one of the best systems on the market. The fact that yours has wireless internet connection is an absolute gem.“
Executive Chef, President & Co-Owner of Blended Bakery
