Food Service ID Machines

The flexibility and convenience provided by an ID card program offers many benefits to the food service industry.  Issuing food service employees ID cards can help track sales, identify employees to customers, and make the checkout process easier and more secure.  Best of all, ID machines can benefit every aspect of food service from cafeterias, catering, and fast food to diners, bistros, and four-star establishments.


ID Machine Considerations for Food Service

Because restaurants can be so different in size, number of employees and customers, and style of service, the right ID card printer for one restaurant might not work at another establishment.  There are a few factors to consider when choosing and ID Machine to power the ID program:


  • Size of restaurant – If there are a large number of employees working at the restaurant, or there is a high rate of employee turnover, restaurants and other eateries will want a card printer with high-volume printing capability.

  • Uses of card - Often the way the card will be used will dictate the type of ID machine needed. For example, if a restaurant wants employees to use their ID card for time and attendance tracking, a magnetic stripe and an ID machine with encoding functions are almost always necessary. If the employee just uses the ID badge to identify themselves to customers, a simple one-sided color printer is sufficient.
