There’s a scrum underway among startups that want to replace the clunky old cash register at restaurants, bars, and cafés. Companies like Square, Breadcrumb, and Cambridge-based Leaf have all been touting the benefits of using sleek tablets and cloud-based software. But one of the quieter local players, Toast, has been steadily building momentum.
The Cambridge company recently surpassed 100 employees (13 new hires started this week), and later in July, Toast will move from Alewife into roomier digs in the Landmark Center in Boston. CEO Chris Comparato says the new space could accommodate as many as 250 employees.
