According to Square, the amount of restaurants using Square Register as their main point of sale system has tripled in the past year. Not only that, but the amount of money that they have processed has quadrupled.

“There are already tens of thousands of merchants in the food industry are increasingly adopting Square for its simple interface, smart analytics, continuous updates, and low processing fees,” says Square.

And with that, the’ve just launched an update to Square Register that helps “quick-serve” restaurants better run their kitchens.

First off, food merchants can now utilize new order modifiers. “Orders are recorded more accurately and communication with the kitchen is faster, creating a seamless experience on both sides of the counter,” says Square.

Plus, custom tickets are now available, giving kitchens a better way to make sure special orders are being processed correctly.

“In an industry where speed, accuracy, and a great customer experience are essential to success, Square Register gives quick serve restaurants tools that are powerful, intuitive, and affordable,” said Square co-founder and CEO Jack Dorsey. “Square is focused on connecting businesses with customers and now, more than ever, merchants can concentrate on providing great food for their customers.”

Back in February, Square unveiled a new “business in a box” package deal point of sale system. For $299, you can get two Square Readers, an iPad stand, and a cash drawer. Of course, Square Register has the ability to wirelessly print receipts and tickets, but that hardware will cost you extra.

    I’ll keep this short and sweet. Today there is all this talk about Cyprus’ debt issues and the fact the governmemt wants to “tax” bank savings deposits! Heck Ben

    Bernanke been doing this to every American depositor in the coutry and all of us sit around and let him get away with it. Why!

    Here is what I’m saying. It is clearly understood by all economists that Ben has been creating money out ot thin air. And to add insult to injury, Bennie has been

    keeping interest rates near zero percent. There is inflation – have you bought a pound of bacon lately? How about a gallon of gas? So each year that goes by, our

    savings buys less and less product. That’s stealing our money folks, not unlike taxing our savings! And it is the direct policies of Obama and Bennie that are doing

    that to every one of us. Does it hurt the rich, not a chance! Does it hurt the poor, nope they have no savings. So who’s really being raped here, yes, you and me,

    the same middle class that we’re told time and again are suppose to be helped by this administration. At least Cyprus does taxes the savings openly.

    So why does Bennie want to keep rates low. We’re told because he wants to stimulate the economy. Has anyone looked lately, I certainly don’t see a stimulated economy!

    The real reason Bennie MUST keep rates low is because for a 1% increase in rates, our U.S. government now has an additional $170 billion of interest expense. Rates

    go up 4%, that’s nearly $700 billion more in interest expense to us tax payers, which by the way just gets added to the national debt.
