EPOS System for Takeaway

Running a takeaway business is a fast-paced, fried chicken-eat-fried chicken world. You’re competing against several other takeaway shops – often on the same street – for speed, tastiness, and customer service. 

So where does EPOS come into this? EPOS companies are producing software and hardware that can facilitate the fast food process – right from when your customers order, through to them sitting down to a well-earned dinner that they haven’t had to cook.

Expert verdict

There’s literally a POS system for every type of takeaway restaurant – whether you’re looking to adopt a McDonald's-style self-service menu, concentrate on customer loyalty, or venture into delivery. But you need to think about more than that. 

Choosing the best takeaway POS system for your business isn’t just about picking one that seems to offer the functionality you need. There’s also credit card fees (which differ according to whether a customer orders online or at the till), hardware costs, and installation fees to consider, too. 

We recommend that you use our helpful service to match you with the best supplier for your requirements. Just fill in our form with a few details about your takeaway business, and the best suppliers will be in touch with advice, as well as quotes for you to compare.


What are the benefits of a takeaway EPOS system?

Did You Know?

A report by site Business of Apps states that there are 45,000 daily Deliveroo users, 51,000 daily UberEats users, and a staggering 500,000 daily JustEat users

The figures above show how important it is to have a system that allows you to tap into your online audience as much as your footfall – and a takeaway EPOS system allows you to do just that. 

But that’s just the start. Here are some other reasons to invest in an EPOS system for your takeaway business:

  • You and your customers can easily input and select menu items
  • You’ll be able to send orders straight through to the kitchen
  • Customers can self-order with front of house hardware
  • You can integrate your business with delivery apps such as Deliveroo and UberEats
  • Customer loyalty schemes can encourage customers to return
  • You’ll be able to purchase additional tablets for waiting staff, both for eat-in and takeout businesses

What is the cost of an EPOS system?

The cost of an EPOS system fully depends on the hardware you require, and the number of employees that will need an account on the software. This makes it hard to work out an accurate cost of an EPOS system for your takeaway shop.

We’ve put together an article which will give you a rough idea of how much an EPOS system costs, but for an accurate quote that includes any setup and installation fees, it’s best to talk to suppliers. 

Expert Market’s quote-finding service makes it easy for you to discover the total amount you’ll need to pay for an EPOS system. Simply tell us a little bit about your business, and the suppliers that match your requirements will be in touch shortly.
