May 17, 2024 | News

Squirrel will announce updates to its Cloud POS, unveil a new portfolio of Order & Pay devices, and introduce new enterprise tools to manage multiple locations.

VANCOUVER, BC, CANADA, May 17, 2024 — Squirrel Systems, a leading provider of restaurant technology solutions, is proud to celebrate its 40th anniversary at the National Restaurant Association (NRA) Show 2024. The event, which will take place from May 18 to 21 at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL, brings together industry professionals, innovators, and food service experts.

As part of the celebration, Squirrel Systems is proud to team up with Giordano’s, a long-time customer and one of America’s most iconic pizzeria chains. Giordano’s is also celebrating its 50th Anniversary this year and is renowned for its deep-dish pizza and commitment to exceptional dining experiences. Together, Squirrel and Giordano’s are treating show visitors to a special gift at the Squirrel booth (Booth #6040), commemorating both their milestone anniversaries.

Squirrel will also announce updates to its Cloud POS, unveil a new portfolio of Order & Pay devices that streamline tableside ordering and payments, and introduce new enterprise tools designed to simplify the management of multiple locations.

Bringing the Best of Squirrel 11 to Cloud POS

The Full-Service Restaurant Edition for Cloud POS, built based on feedback from premier full-service restaurant brands like Giordano’s, The Keg, Brown’s Social House, Cactus Club Cafe, and Smitty’s Restaurants, is getting a significant update. This update will allow operators with larger, more complex sites to take full advantage of Squirrel Cloud to run their front-of-house more efficiently and simplify menu management. The new edition comes with advanced table-service features loved by Squirrel 11 customers, such as coursing, large party check views, and customizable floorplans. Managers will also appreciate a new approach to menu versioning and scheduling, making it easier to handle larger menu changes while still allowing real-time changes to active menus.

A New Portfolio of Order-and-Pay Solutions

What started as a technology to deliver a better guest experience has become a better way to operate the front-of-house more efficiently, increasing table turns and average check size. Squirrel’s popular tablet-based tableside ordering has evolved into a portfolio of devices that unites payments and ordering. With a single device, servers are now entirely free from fixed terminals and retrieving payment devices, allowing them to spend more time with their guests.
