Learn about Toast, how Toast integrates with xtraCHEF, if Toast integrates with QuickBooks, and the benefits of a Toast and xtraCHEF integration.


What is Toast?

Toast is a cloud-based Point-of-Sale (POS) and management system that helps restaurants improve operations, increase sales, and create all-around better guest experiences.

Launched in 2013, Toast powers successful restaurants of all sizes with a tech platform that supports a diverse marketplace of third-party applications.

How does xtraCHEF integrate with Toast?

xtraCHEF is designed to automate data entry at restaurants, a time-consuming and error-prone task required of chefs, general managers, and/or restaurant accountants to monitor and manage payables and profits.

Our integration enables restaurants to automatically capture ingredient-level purchase data from invoices and compare it directly to sales and revenue data from Toast.

Daily sales data is synced from Toast’s POS system to fuel xtraCHEF insights, like real-time purchase and price trend analyses by category and across locations, making it easy to measure revenue and spend performance across all accounting periods.

Does Toast integrate with QuickBooks?

Toast does not automatically integrate with QuickBooks. However, xtraCHEF provides the missing piece! Sync, a free tool from xtraCHEF, automatically and accurately integrates sales data from Toast directly to QuickBooks Online.

No cost. No data entry. No stress. Save time and accounting-related expenses by Sync-ing your sales data! Learn more about Sync here.

“xtraCHEF’s seamless integration with Toast provides our teams with deeper, daily insights into our Cost-of-Goods-Sold (COGS). It allows us to keep our Coach Operators on the floor delighting our guests instead of entering data manually.” Grant Lieberman, Director of Technology at Dos Toros
