As the nights draw longer and the sun begins to make a long-awaited appearance, café and restaurant owners are gearing up for the busiest time of the year.

With an opportunity to boost sales and build repeat custom for the remainder of the year, it’s crucial to keep your business working in perfect harmony during these busy months.

We know it’s not always easy. That’s why we’re sharing our 5 top tips to ensure your café or restaurant never misses a beat this summer – with the help of Elavon EPOS.

1. Slash those queues

At the busiest times of the day, keeping queues down to a minimum and staying on top of orders is vital to keep things running smoothly. That’s why it pays to have an EPOS system that lets you create orders and take payments in just a few taps – to avoid lengthy queues and ensure your customers get the great, speedy service they’re used to.

2. Put your best food forward

When you can easily and quickly see which products are selling best – and even compare top suppliers by sales – you can keep your customer favourites front and centre. Elavon EPOS lets you spot emerging trends and see which discounts and offers are working the hardest for you.

3. Make online ordering a breeze.

Online ordering is a growing part of business for many cafés and restaurants. But with third-party platforms, commissions can be expensive and managing it all can be disruptive and time consuming. Elavon EPOS builds online ordering into the heart of your business, allowing you to see the orders coming in and manage them in the best way that suits you.

4. Stay on top of stock

Running low, or even worse, running out of stock is the last thing you need during a busy lunchtime rush. With an all-in-one EPOS solution, staying on top of stock levels doesn’t have to be a grind. Easily see where you are in real time, spot which products and menu items are gaining in popularity, and even set alerts for when key items are running low.

5. Love your bundles

We all love a good bundle offer. You can’t beat a croissant and coffee, soup and sandwich. Bundle deals are a brilliant sales driver, but hassle at the till can at times make them feel like more trouble than they’re worth. Upgrade to Elavon EPOS to seamlessly manage deal items from tab to till, for happy customers and higher sales.

Take back control

Don’t let the summer rush knock your business out of rhythm this year. Streamline payments, improve operations and increase sales, with the EPOS system that makes sure your café or restaurant never misses a beat.
