Alabama State University’s newly built stadium on Aug. 31 became the first such arena to use the iPad for concession sales, according to San Francisco-based point-of-sale tablet vendor Revel Systems Inc., which announced the installation on Monday. At the Hornets’ season-opening football game at home in Montgomery, more than 30 iPads handled 5,721 transactions, a record for the 26,500-seat stadium, Revel said. The iPad POS solution is being used only in fixed concession stands so far, but it could be used by roving concessionaires, the company says.

Instore provides an iDynamo card reader free of charge when you open an account, though others may charge a fee for the hardware: Shopkeep, for instance, includes the iDynamo reader as part of its $1,099 hardware bundle.

Because so many other things in the food truck business are unreliable, you need to choose a reliable POS system. Flat tires and breakdowns, getting hassled by parking enforcement, running out of supplies during a rush, getting less foot traffic than you anticipated. A mobile food cart POS should help you with the problem of reliability, not make it worse.

There are many options when it comes to selecting iPad stands and accessories for your iPad POS.  They come in all shapes, sizes, and price points.  Zephyr Hardware has tested dozens of iPad stands and most of them do not have some key features that prove to be essential when working with an iPad point of sale system. When making your decision, ask yourself these questions:

When you open the program for the first time, there is like a 10% chance it won’t connect to chip reader. You have to quit app and restart. Gets old.

Whether it’s a food cart in the city, a roadside stand or a concession booth, food stands have been a part of food culture for hundreds of years. Simple, unique snacks that taste great are prepared quickly and feed the hungry masses. Traditional street food is some of the most sought-after cuisines by adventurous tourists when visiting a new local. You just can’t go to New York without getting a Hot dog or to Philly without a cheese steak! These local foods gained their iconic status from the food carts and snack bars that became family traditions.

The system also works offline when power fails, Falzone says. While the iPads run on battery power, the app stores sales data and batches transactions for authorization when power is restored. This came in handy during the opening game when power was lost for an hour on one side of the stadium, Falzone says. The company also offer equipment for occasions when power remains on but Internet connectivity fails. Last year, for example, it introduced a wireless router that allows users to operate peripherals such as cash drawers, receipt printers, and card swipers via the iPad’s cellular connection.
