Toast POS was founded in 2011 as a cloud-based restaurant software company. It is headquartered in Boston with around 1400 toasters across the US and even in Dublin, Ireland. The software is developed to help the foodservice industry's users, operators and staff. The platform delivers a service for restaurateurs with a range of functionality like labour, credit card processing, accounting, POS, gift and loyalty, CRM, and online ordering. It enables its customers to strengthen their restaurant activities and more successfully manage their business. A restaurant ordering feature lets users divide menu bills and items among customers and offers automatic alerts when the order is available. Payments for restaurateurs and their customers are eased, with an alternative known as ' pay at the table.' Beach Hut Deli, as well as Fresh City, Lakewood Brewing Company and Paris Creperie, are among the leading customers of this technology.
