Running a successful restobar in the Philippines requires more than just offering great food and creating the perfect atmosphere – you’ll also need to provide exceptional service, manage inventory, and drive sales growth in order to stand out from the competition.

The key to this lies in choosing the right point-of-sale (POS) ecosystem. Unlike traditional systems, modern POS solutions are cloud-based; equipped with a range of features to support the growth and management of your business.

In this article, we will delve into three leading POS systems – StoreHub, UTAK, and Mosaic; and explore the key features that are essential for running and growing a restobar.

Inventory Management

Inventory management is an important part of running a sustainable restobar, as it allows business owners like you to optimize your operating costs and streamline operations.

With StoreHub, manual stock counting becomes a thing of the past, saving you time and minimizing the potential for costly human errors. Everything is tracked in real-time, giving you a clear view of costs and available stock.

For F&B business owners, StoreHub’s composite inventory feature lets you monitor the ingredients you use, providing automated alerts if stock levels are getting low. You can also manage purchase orders with suppliers.

In addition, you can leverage comprehensive inventory reports to make well-informed business decisions. If you have multiple outlets, StoreHub makes it easy to transfer inventory seamlessly between your stores, too.

QR Order & Pay

Picture a bustling Happy Hour at your restobar, with a vibrant atmosphere and a full house of customers. However, without an efficient table and order management system, wait times potentially become longer, and chances of order mix-ups are high – leading to a frustrating customer experience.

With StoreHub’s QR Order & Pay, you can prevent exactly that. All customers have to do is scan the QR code on their table to view your menu, place their order, and make payment – all from their mobile device.

This allows your staff to concentrate on preparing the food, delivering it to the customers’ tables, and ensuring top-notch service.

Orders are seamlessly and automatically sent to your POS and kitchen as well, eliminating the need for manual entry and reducing the likelihood of order errors.

Customer Loyalty

Did you know that a 5% increase in customer retention can lead to an increase in profits by up to 75%? This means that returning customers are more likely to help you boost your profits compared to new ones. 

That’s why it’s important to ensure that your restobar has a robust customer loyalty system in place. 

With StoreHub, you can run your own loyalty program that’s integrated with your POS – drawing your customers in via Cashback that incentivizes them to return and spend their earnings.

StoreHub Engage also allows you to automatically send personalized SMS reminders to your customers about promotions and latest offers; all at a low annual fee.
