Hardware built for a restaurant environment

While an iPad is a great consumer product, it often proves unreliable in high-heat, high-impact restaurant environments like the kitchen. Apple only provides specific hardware specs and sizes with no ability to add capabilities or customize the form factor. Toast allows users to choose between 10” and 15” screen options.


Reliable network with top-speed performance

Toast is cloud-based, with an industry-leading uptime. When Wi-Fi is down, Toast has an automatic, synchronous switch to offline mode. You can continue to accept credit card payments and run operations seamlessly during offline mode.

Bareburger, a fast casual concept with locations nationwide switched from Revel to Toast in 2016.

Learn why they switched to Toast.

If we had called a few references before we went with our last [iPad] system, it would have saved us $100,000 and a year of headache. I called three references for Toast and they were all glowing.
