Gordon Food Service Sales and Marketing senior director Joel Marsh said: “For nearly 30 years, we’ve delivered the solutions, products and expertise our customers need to design successful food operations and experiences.

“Partnering with Toast to provide our Canadian customers with access to the latest restaurant-led technologies is core to our approach as a high-tech and high-touch partner and furthers that mission of accelerating our customers’ success.”

Earlier this month, Toast introduced its new solution, Toast for Cafes & Bakeries.

The new Toast for Cafes & Bakeries solution is claimed to help businesses fast-track their service with quicker workflows and add new revenue streams.

Toast added that cafes, bakeries and other restaurant types can take advantage of the new features such as catering, online ordering and restaurant retail.
