A new integrated POS system from Square has launched in Canada to help restaurant operators manage staff, connect with customers through online ordering and save time.

Square for Restaurants is an all-in-one specialized POS system for restaurants, breweries, cafés and bars.

The system helps both front and back of house. Managers can update menus and floor layouts remotely across multiple terminals and locations, which can be helpful during changing occupancy allowances due to COVID-19 restrictions. It also offers built-in employee management capabilities to enable staff time and performance tracking, tip splitting, fraud protection, a kitchen display system for full synchronization.

Square for Restaurants enables online ordering, allowing restaurants to process orders directly through their restaurant website for no monthly fees or commissions. Businesses can easily set up delivery and curbside pickup and limit in-person contact with self-serve ordering as well as offer loyalty programs and gift cards as additional ways to engage with customers.

A select number of Canadian establishments have worked with the system for the past few months as early adopters. Among them is The Brake Room, a local café in Belleville, Ont.

“The industry has faced many starts and stops due to COVID-19, and Square for Restaurants has allowed me to adjust to changing restrictions,” said Adam Tilley, owner of the Brake Room. ”We knew that investing in our relationship with Square would provide a foundation for future growth, and it has definitely streamlined our processes and sped up the customer experience.”
