Reso is a new online reservation management system that recently entered the Columbus market. The company has provided a cloud-based restaurant management tool for years in Canada, where over 1,800 restaurant owners utilize their software to manage bookings and seatings. Reso made its U.S. debut last year in Cleveland—over 75 local restaurants there now use the service—and Columbus is its second U.S. market. A dozen Dine Originals Columbus restaurants now use Reso for online reservations! 



Toast offers an all-in-one, integrated restaurant point of sale system, with services including online ordering, loyalty programs, gift cards and more in one package. The Toast system also provides restaurant owners with real-time reporting that can be accessed anywhere, at any time. Toast's POS system can be customized to the location (or locations) and configured to the restaurant’s unique needs. 



JoinMyTable works with restaurants to offer pre-paid, profitable food and beverage experiences called Tables. Restaurants create a fixed menu and set a price to cover their food, beverage, gratuity and profit. We add tax and a minor booking fee to reach the all-inclusive, pre-paid seat price. Restaurants keep everything they asked for. You can create Private Tables guests can host on dates and times you choose. Create Community Tables anyone can join. There’s no fee to use our platform. We love restaurants and the people who bring hospitality to life. You deserve your profit. Keep it.
