Aldelo Express POS Goes “Beyond the Counter” for Supporting Outdoor Dining
3-minute read ---
Recent limitations for dine-in restaurants prompted over half of U.S. restaurants to begin providing outdoor on-premises services. In the third quarter of 2021 that trend persists, with 65% of restaurant operators offering on-premises outdoor dining in patio, deck, parklet, or sidewalk settings. Surveys also report that even after pandemic restrictions are lifted, 90% of restaurant owners and 84% of adult customers would prefer restaurants to be allowed to continue offering outdoor dining on sidewalks, parking lots, or streets. To efficiently serve these now common dining environments, restaurants ideally need an all-in-one point of sale with both tableside and remote solutions that can ebb and flow with their business needs.
