Two way radios are a popular tool to improve restaurant efficiencies. With instant communications between wait staff, hosts or hostesses, and the kitchen the average time required to turn tables can be significantly reduced, and the time customers wait for food can be lessened. These improvements lead to more profitability and an improved customer experience.
Restaurants using two way radios have found that radios quickly pay for themselves in increased efficiency and lessened time to turn tables. They are often considerably less expensive and provide more functionality than other products designed specifically for this field, including products that integrate into a POS system.
Restaurants are usually relatively small, so two way radio range is not a big concern - practically any radio would provide adequate coverage for even the largest practices. Because of this, restaurants typically choose small, lightweight radios. Single channel radios are adequate for many situations, but multi-channel models may be helpful if you have several groups that need to have separate communications.
Because range/power isn't usually a factor, restaurants often consider less expensive consumer radios. We recommend business radios, as they are designed for everyday use and use more exclusive frequencies that help eliminate interference.
