3. Send different orders to different stations
With Orderspoon and Kitchen Display, you can streamline your back of house by establishing different stations and only sending the orders relevant to them. The bar, for example, can be one station and the kitchen can be another. If an order is placed for cocktails and dessert, the bar receives the drink order and the kitchen receives the food order.
