A kitchen display system (KDS) is a digital screen that displays incoming orders in restaurant kitchens. KDS screens route orders from the point-of-sale (POS) system to the correct kitchen station. Good kitchen display systems streamline kitchen communication, reduce human errors, and monitor cook times.
It replaces paper order tickets and helps restaurants organize, prioritize, change and track orders. A KDS can run $10 to $25 per month per screen plus the cost of hardware
