Simplified Payroll and HR for Restaurants
With Toast Payroll
& Team Management, Protein Bar & Kitchen—a restaurant concept with 19
locations across the U.S. in cities like Denver, Chicago, and
Washington, D.C.—digitized the employee onboarding experience,
systematized payroll, and empowered front line managers to help their
team progress and grow professionally.

“We used to spend over 10 hours per week managing payroll and auditing
hours worked for our team of more than 250 employees,” says Kevin
McTigue, Senior Finance Manager at Protein Bar & Kitchen. “With the
addition of Toast Payroll & Team Management, we reduced the time spent
on payroll runs by up to 60 percent. In addition, we streamlined
onboarding and eliminated paperwork so our front-line managers can focus
on developing their teams and delivering a great guest experience.”

Benefits of Toast Payroll & Team Management
from the ground-up to support restaurants of all sizes, Toast Payroll &
Team Management provides a rich set of features designed to simplify how
restaurants recruit, onboard, manage, and pay team members. New
capabilities include:

  • Streamlined employee onboarding:
    eliminate paperwork, reduce the risk of manual errors, and automate
    employee onboarding access within Toast Payroll & Team Management
  • Unified payroll and point of sale:
    employees clock in via Toast Point of Sale and hours automatically
    track—including blended overtime—so employees are paid accurately
  • Programmed compliance risk management:
    restaurateurs can easily navigate federal tax filings and
    state-specific regulations like New York’s “Spread of Hours Law” and
    California’s “Meal Break & Rest Break Law”
  • Integrated team development capabilities:
    with built-in features like applicant tracking and performance
    management, restaurateurs can recruit, manage and develop employees on
    a single system

“In an increasingly tight labor market, workforce management is a key
challenge that keeps the collective restaurant industry up at night. In
fact, almost two-thirds of Toast customers listed this as their top
challenge in the 2018
Toast Restaurant Success Report
,” said Steve Fredette, president and
co-founder of Toast. “Building on our deep knowledge of the restaurant
industry, Toast Payroll & Team Management provides a single system for
recruiting, onboarding, managing, and paying teams.”
