Benefits for Quick Service Restaurants & Food Trucks

No Expensive Pagers

Use your guests' cell phones instead of expensive pager system. No more big upfront investments in hardware or replacing pagers that break or "walk off" every few weeks. Juggling a hungry crowd is tough - make it easier by replacing pagers with instant notifications from TablesReady.

Better than Shouting

Food gets cold and clutters your counter. Guests use the restroom or read their phones and don't hear their name called. Just enter a customer's phone number and name or order number (however you track things) into TablesReady and click to notify your guests in seconds.

Plan Your Staffing & Save Money

All your valuable wait time and guest information is lost when you use pagers or notepads. TablesReady tracks it all and presents it in easy-to-use charts to help you manage your staff, shorten waits, and increase profits.

Engage Your Guests

You can pass on more than "Your food is ready" - it's customizable and lets you highlight specials, promote events, or even link to social media pages like Facebook and Twitter. Old pagers were an annoyance, TablesReady is part of the experience.

Integrates with Square POS

Automatically pull in customer and order information when you connect your Square account.

Lose the Crowd, Not the Customers

Texting customers frees them from waiting on top of the cashier. Crowds by the cashier are big deterrents to potential guests, and there is nothing worse than losing a customer. TablesReady keeps your cashier and order pickup areas clear.

Customer testimonial

"TablesReady has been critical in starting my fast-casual/walk-up restaurant without using antiquated pagers with an antiquated infrastructure to support it. This technology integrated with Square has allowed our operation to notify our patrons when their order is ready no matter where they are, on or off property. Being a property located on the beaches of Lake Erie, our guests have the flexibility to be at the beach, walking the shore, enjoying time with their families or seated versus waiting onsite for their order."
