Chipotle Is Adding POS Drive-Thrus and Mobile App

Chipotle Mexican Grill, a casual fast food restaurant who’s huge on burritos, for a long time has been trying to turn its sales around. But the company might have just come across what’ll do the trick in helping them boost their sales: POS Drive-Thrus.

Chipotle has started adding POS drive-thrus to some of its restaurant locations. Chipotle’s drive-thrus are different from other fast food restaurants’ with respect to how customer’s order. These drive-thrus don’t have POS kiosks or ordering windows. Instead customers must order ahead of time using the Chipotle mobile app or online. Chipotle drive-thru locations also come with a “second line” to accommodate for the orders that are coming in as online and/or mobile orders.

Chipotle is also heavily investing in figuring out how well the POS drive-thrus, to-go, and delivery service options will fare when applied to their food service. It’s a very innovative concept which Chipotle is still testing out, but one that could be very successful in bringing them back business.

Mobile and online ordering are a huge leap forward for Chipotle. And while Chipotle has opted to push the POS drive-thrus option, kiosks (both at the drive-thrus and inside the stores) would have also been another good technological advancement they could have acquired seeing as how it’s a very new and captivating way that other major fast food restaurant chains (McDonald’s, Panera, Wendy’s, Chick-fil-a) have already benefited from.

So for fast food restaurants like Chipotle and many others looking to grow their sales, Sintel Systems, a Point of Sales technology company, offers the newest in self-service kiosks and online ordering POS systems to a wide array of businesses.
