Kitchen Display System

Better Order Management Tech for Your Back Of House

Every good chef knows the best kitchens are those that have mastered communication and timing.

TouchBistro’s Kitchen Display System pairs perfectly with your existing kitchen printer to help improve your back-of-house operation. With our Kitchen Display System software in place, you’ll be able to see every ticket generated from any screen, giving you and your staff all the information you need at a glance.

Manage the Whole Kitchen

A consolidated view of all unprepared items across all open tickets. Whole individual tickets are color-coded based on how long they’ve been open. This makes managing the kitchen far easier for the expo or head chef.

What kind of kitchen display system hardware do I need to run the TouchBistro KDS?
TouchBistro KDS can be run on any iPad that can run iOS 6. This includes the iPad Air, iPad Mini 2, and the iPad Pro 2015 or newer devices.
How much does the KDS cost?
Kitchen Display System pricing varies based on your existing TouchBistro POS license. Talk to a Restaurant Success Specialist to learn more.
Should I use a kitchen printer alongside the KDS?
Yes. TouchBistro Kitchen Display System hardware augments the use of a printer but it is not meant to replace it. We recommend impact printers for stability and reliability.
