“I wanted to express my gratitude and let you know how happy I am with the all-around experience at Table Needs. You have an amazing system and the team is super-friendly, accommodating and awesome at communicating. Plus, Nicholas did an amazing job on the set up and training! A shout out to you too for getting us on board.”Junior Vargas, Las Ellies Food Truck
If you own and operate a food truck, you know your on-the-move, quick-serve operation differs from much of the food industry. Naturally, affordability, mobility and flexibility are key — including when it comes to merchant services.
Choosing the right POS system for your food truck can make or break the experience for you, your employees and your customers. While even the most basic POS systems out there will process orders and payments, well-equipped, all-in-one solutions can help you run your business more easily and efficiently.
Not to be overlooked is the matter of reliable connectivity — it’s a basic necessity. Unfortunately, most systems are spotty on a good day and that negatively affects business. Table Needs has portable, wireless Mi-Fi devices that taps into 3G, 4G or 5G mobile phone networks to create a mini broadband hotspot, as well as Sim cards that help provide connectivity when it wouldn’t otherwise be possible.
Although the ideal solution for your food truck depends on your specific needs, finding a partner who knows the industry; has the ability to customize your solution; will support your growth; and can troubleshoot challenges goes a long way toward streamlining day-to-day operations.
Menu updates that are easy to make
Managing digital menus can be such a pain — especially when you feature items with limited availability. Table Needs’ lets you easily make — even pre-set — menu availability, as well as make menu adjustments on the fly.
Our menu management tool can automatically remove items from your menu when they sell out, publishing the updates everywhere, at once, in real-time. That includes not just your lunch, dinner and late-night menus, but also the menus your customers use to order online.
In addition to letting you design, redesign, adjust and modify your menus hassle-free, our integrated, intuitive menu management offering makes it easy to modify menu items, tag them with allergen warnings, swap sides and add modifiers.
A solution tailored to your food truck
We realize choosing — or switching to a new — POS is a big decision. Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be hard. Providing comprehensive training and support is foundational to the Table Needs experience, starting with everything you need to achieve simplicity and success.
Susan Cardone, Arepa Bar & Truck in Spanish Fort, Alabama, says it better than we can.
“I was recommended by a trusted friend to call Table Needs for the POS system for my new food truck,” says Cardone. “I was new to the food scene and knew Table Needs was new as well. After meeting with the team I knew it was going to be a great partnership. Everyone was so helpful — they even came out to install my equipment and stayed the entire day. It’s a great company to be working with. I always feel supported and like I made the right choice.”
