What exactly is Porter?

Porter gives your patrons the ability to order and pay from their own table with their own device at their own pace. Porter also makes managing all of your digital menus a snap. Quite simply, Porter improves the entire experience of dining out for everyone involved. It helps managers crush it in coffee shops, food halls, taprooms, pizzerias, and pretty much any counter-service establishment. And it streamlines the dining (or drinking) experience for folks who hang out at all of those places.

So how does Porter work?

It couldn’t be easier. Provide a few bits of information to set up your account, enter your menu offerings in the Porter dashboard and you’re set to take orders and payment directly from your patrons who never have to stand in line again!

"Porter has been a total game changer for us. We used to spend hours each week taking inventory, updating menus, calculating prices, and stuff like that — in the morning, no less. Now, we get to spend more time at home with our families and then come in and enjoy conversations with our customers. We even have time to think about ways to make their experience at Beergarden even better."
Holly, Beergarden Manager
