Toast menus will match the physical menus you use and allow you to organize them the same way. Beyond breakfast, lunch, and dinner, you can also further break down menu item groups. There is plenty of room for more subgroups and modifiers.
Restaurant-Tailored Reporting & Inventory Management
Most point-of-sale systems offer reports on transactions. Toast goes one step further for restaurant owners.
Toast integrates its customer relationship system with reports. You can collect customer information and see which customers visit your restaurant the most. Customer reports can be broken down by average check, frequency of visits, and most frequently ordered dishes.
On the inventory side, you can monitor costs with a recipe costing tool and food cost calculator. More impressively, Toast offers a menu engineering feature that helps you determine the best-selling and most profitable dishes.

Toast’s color-coded kitchen display system features wait times on all orders and enables them to quickly notify servers when an order is prepared. Servers can be notified with a flash or a sound through the POS system.
