  • Reduce waste in your kitchen with real-time stock dashboard reporting

Fast food software FAQs

What is a quick service restaurant?

A quick service restaurant, also known as a fast-food restaurant, is a food and beverage provider that typically serves customers at the counter and focuses on serving customers quickly and efficiently. Consumers choose these types of restaurants because they value speed – so keeping waiting times short is vital.

Increasingly, many quick service restaurants offer self-service options for ordering, such as through a mobile app, website or self-service kiosk in their venue.

What systems do fast-food restaurants use?

Fast-food restaurants prioritise fast service, so they typically utilise software systems to help speed up order processes and service time, such as a POS system with a customer-facing, self-service kiosk that facilitates payments across all their sales channels. To manage the back-of-house fast-food restaurants often use a kitchen display system to communicate orders from the POS to the kitchen and inventory management software to help with stock.

As many fast-food outlets are part of a chain many operators also utilise software systems to help with management across the estate such as property maintenance and HR software.
