For restaurant owners in today’s market, running a restaurant means employing and training a nimble and versatile staff capable of assuming a variety of roles. It also means selecting a state-of-the-art POS technology platform and online ordering solution that works in concert with customers for efficiently managing transactions and services from anywhere. This means utilizing mobile handheld POS devices to expand the restaurant’s reach in and outside of the store, improve customer convenience, and provide faster service.

This creates a smooth and convenient method when serving customers at fairs, concerts, festivals, stadiums, golf courses, theaters, concessions, farmers markets and a variety of other events.
From little league and high school baseball to the major leagues, each year friends and family gather at baseball fields and parks to enjoy “America’s favorite pastime.” But watching a baseball game would not be complete without snack shacks, mobile units, and food trucks that provide refreshing food and drinks and local sponsorships. As little league and baseball seasons begin this spring, restaurants and operators with enhanced point of sale technology capabilities such as mobile handheld POS devices, QR code-enabled online ordering solutions, and remote digital payments are operating a full-featured point of sale and food service operation in snack shack and mobile unit environments. By doing so, these restaurants and operations increase exposure to young adults and families that are more likely to support the business with future visits.

Restaurants have always been a gathering place for local communities. While a contactless dining market has introduced numerous challenges for both restaurant owners and their customers, restaurants adopting flexible point-of-sale technologies are able to provide communities with creative events and interactive services in contactless, non-traditional settings.
In late 2021, most restaurants offered on-premises outdoor dining in patio, deck, parklet or sidewalk settings. Once pandemic restrictions are lifted, 90% of restaurant owners and 84% of adult consumers would prefer restaurants to continue offering outdoor dining on sidewalks, parking lots, or streets. * In addition to mainstream outdoor dining, curbside pickup, and delivery services, restaurants can use merchant- and customer-facing mobile POS solutions to promote their brand, expand their customer base, and engage customers with car-hop dining experiences.
Restaurants can host their own drive-in events - think of the movie American Graffiti - or partner with local businesses to enhance car-hop dining experiences with light shows, theatrical performances, movie showings, drive-by art shows, and drive-thru farmers markets. Creating a unique and fun atmosphere for the community brings people together while supporting local farmers, artisans, businesses, and community groups helps restaurants become a focal point for existing and new customers.
Aldelo Express Physical Split Check Feature Makes “Going Dutch” Easier than Ever

Forty percent of customers prefer to split checks when dining with friends. * Some guests pay their own way by alerting the waiter before ordering, while other parties load a group bill onto one card and pay back the cardholder after the meal. For those in groups tasked with itemizing a group’s guest check, the process is time consuming and tedious and there are always items that fall through the cracks. The experience is stressful and defeats the purpose of getting together for a fun and relaxing meal.
From family gatherings to get-togethers with friends, both diners and staff are familiar with the infamous “check war.” It is the battle of wills between family and friends insisting “dinner is on them” or they’ve “got it covered.” It is the race to grab the check as soon as the server arrives with the little black book at the table. Typically, the result is a compromise that results in portioning and separating the final check amount. Whether the debate at the table is tiresome or amusing, at the very least, it is guaranteed to happen at least once on any shift.
There is relief to these scenarios with Aldelo Express’ new physical split check feature for all order types. Servers can accommodate large groups with ease, splitting checks into two, ten, or any number of physical checks from any in-house or mobile printer. Servers effortlessly adjust checks by number of guests or payments, helping guests relax and keep the good times rolling.
