[New] Square for Restaurants mobile POS

Good day Sellers! 👋

We’re excited to announce the launch of Square for Restaurants mobile POS, which brings you the ability to take table-side orders and payments with Square for Restaurants on Square Terminal (and soon to the new Restaurant Mobile POS kit).


How does this help you?

  • Turn tables faster and increase server efficiency with intuitive tableside ordering and payments.
  • Give your servers more time to interact with their diners and provide best-in-class service.
  • Keep tabs on your VIPs with up-to-the-minute diner preferences, order history, and server notes.
  • Keep service running smoothly with your staff always in the know of what’s selling and what’s about to sell out.
  • Keep diners safe with the flexibility to order and pay how they want.
  • Get orders out quickly and accurately with tableside, curbside, online, and delivery orders streamlined on one powerful handheld device.
  • Keep your kitchen efficient and your line cooks and expeditors in sync with the ability to course, fire, sequence, and throttle orders accurately based on prep time and order source.
  • Keep lines moving, and empower your servers to take orders on the go. Completely eliminate the back and forth from the table to the countertop POS. 


Frankie DiCarlatnonio of the Scaffidi Restaurant Group says diners ordered additional rounds of alcohol due to the speed of ordering and preparation, resulting in a 22% increase in alcohol sales since implementing the use of a tableside POS.


“With the layout of our restaurant, Mobile POS is saving a lot of physical steps, which has increased staff satisfaction and alleviated some of the stress on their positions,” says DiCarlantonio. “We're seeing a lot of additional efficiency in our operations because our staff are spending more and more time on the floor rather than out of reach putting in orders.”
