FreePOS In A Table Service Bar/Grill
A bar & grill
style restaurant has many unique operational
characteristics that many POS software packages
deal with differently. This style of
restaurant will make heavy use of the POS's
table management functions. When tables are
occupied in FreePOS, they change to the color
RED. When they are ready for a party, they turn
BLUE. In version 2, a new color code of GREEN
was added - which indicates the party has left
the table and is paying at the cashier's. A
quick glance at the screen allows your host to
quickly assess the tables ready for a party.
The bar of this
style restaurant must be able to enter orders
quickly. Using the bar mode of FreePOS, this is
easily accomplished. Expect a typical bar
order to take less than 20 seconds to enter.
The bar is also a
preparation center. FreePOS can be configured
to print bar prep tickets at the bar printer
when the order was entered from a "non bar"
terminal - this saves tons of paper!
A busy kitchen
will probably have prep stations for appetizers,
entrees, sandwiches and desserts. FreePOS can
handle hundreds of printers... so you'll never
is no problem at all... our carryout module
(included) is excellent for this type of
service. It also can work for drive-in
eateries (1950's style restaurants).
type of restaurant has wait staff purse their
own tables. FreePOS makes this type of
accounting simple. At any time, the manager may
run a "tron" report for a particular waiter.
The "tron" report shows all the details and even
calculates net owing. Managers will love
FreePOS because even coupons and gift
certificates are automatically accounted for.
