Our Story

Every day, 15 million Americans show up to work at a restaurant. That’s 10% of the U.S. workforce. Almost all restaurants have fewer than 50 employees, and most are independent, not part of a giant chain. The restaurateurs leading these businesses run on tight margins. They don’t have a big capital budget. They aren’t software gurus. And most of all, they don’t have much time to get a handle on everything – guests, staff, menu, marketing and finance – making it harder than it has to be to take their restaurant to the next level.

That’s why we created Upserve Restaurant POS and Management Software serving up clear guidance that makes your restaurant thrive. The magic ingredient.

Offering pointed and timely guidance, Upserve makes it easier to manage guests, staff, marketing, finances, and even the menu.

Over 7,000 restaurants use Upserve to manage relationships with millions of active diners processing over $6 billion in annual sales.

Running a restaurant isn’t going to get easier. But it will get smarter.
