The Georgia Theatre might handle up to 3 to 4 thousand receipts in a given summer night. There’s a lot of things that could go wrong here, and one thing we know for sure won’t go wrong is our point of sale system.

Georgia Theatre

The back office is super easy to use, so you can figure things out without any training.


This product is getting better and better! The Support team is always willing to help with anything you need done as a matter of priority. So many cool updates just came out and I can't wait to use them when my seasonal restaurant is open again! I love that you can suspend your service charges during off season! There isn't a better option for an affordable and easy to use software.

Lightspeed has been great for my restaurant. They've helped me save time and reduce costs with their intuitive system, and every time I have a question or concern they are happy to help me and solve my issues. You can't find a better POS on the market.

I want my team to focus on what they do best. With the click of a button, they can show guests what a particular dish looks like and that adds to the experience.
