Craving More from Your POS System? Bite into Adora Instead of Toast

Software for Restaurant

Navigating the bustling world of pizza and fast-casual restaurant ownership, you’re familiar with the heat of the kitchen and the pressure of the front line. But some pressures, like unpredictable costs and unreliable equipment, should never be part of your recipe for success. In light of recent revelations about Big Box POS handling of hardware costs and technical support, it’s crucial to stir the pot on these issues.

A Stale Situation with Hardware Costs

Many restaurant owners are drawn to Big Box POS due to the enticing option of not paying upfront for hardware. However, this seemingly sweet deal quickly sours as Big Box POS takes a percentage of your gross sales until this hardware is paid off. It’s a model that can significantly dilute your earnings until your hardware is paid off. Imagine, in your busiest season, a daily slice of your profits is diverted not into investments or improvements but into settling a hardware bill that looms over you.

The Technical Glitches that Grill Your Patience

Equally grating are the issues many users encounter with Big Box POS’s hardware, particularly printers misfiring—or not firing at all. These aren’t just minor hiccups; they’re the kind of operational nightmares that can derail a dinner rush or confuse a kitchen during peak hours. When your printers go down, your employees get frustrated and your customers get an err of disorganization from the kitchen that can often lead to them leaving with a bad taste in their mouth.

The lesson here is that hardware is only as good as the software that runs it. While these printers are meant to streamline your operations, their reliability falls short when paired with a suboptimal POS. What’s more, resolving these issues is often a marathon of patience, battling long wait times and less-than-helpful customer support.

Non-Negotiable Processing Fees

As a restaurant owner, you wear many hats – from quality control and customer satisfaction to financial planning. The last thing you need is another unforeseen expense, especially one you have little to no control over. Yet, many establishments find themselves in this exact predicament, thanks to (insert Big Box POS Name) new ‘card present’ policy that charges an average 2.89% processing fee + .15 cents per transaction. ‘Card not present’ is an astounding 3.7% + .15 cents per transaction. This price-gouging has sent shockwaves across the industry, with many restaurateurs voicing their concerns and have sent them searching for credit card agnostic solutions, namely Adora POS.
