POSitouch Automates The Hospitality Industry

Strolling along Collins Avenue in Miami Beach, you’ll come across a charming art deco-style restaurant serving delicious Cuban cuisine – David’s Café. The story of David’s Café started 50 years ago when Alfredo Gonzalez left Cuba in pursuit of a better life in the US. He met his wife Maria Fanego, who shared the same passion for hospitality and the food industry. After opening a series of bars in New Jersey, the family moved to Miami Beach where they opened a little gem called David’s Café, right in the heart of South Beach. Their hard work paid off, and today, the restaurant continues its successful 33-year run.

David’s Café delights guests with authentic Cuban food like stuffed tostones rellenos, yucca frita, churrasco, Cuban sandwiches, fresh grilled fish and paella. The restaurant offers catering and is open 24 hours a day. Customer service is extremely important at David’s Café, so the owners invested in a POSitouch restaurant POS system that processes cash and credit card payments. Using the restaurant point-of-sale, servers can send orders to the kitchen electronically for faster preparation and delivery. The owners do all their inventory, accounting and work scheduling on the computer POS system. POSitouch helps to simplify the business functions of a restaurant.

POSitouch benefits all hospitality businesses and is currently used in casual dining, fine dining, nightclubs, bars, stadiums, arenas, bowling alleys, yogurt shops, hotels, country clubs and more.
