About Lavu

Improve satisfaction. Focus on what matters. Grow.

Our mission is to empower restaurants to do more of what they love with solutions that work.

How it Started

The Lavu Story

Lavu’s restaurant Point of Sale began with a meal and a mission! While dining out one night, our founders noticed how stressed out their servers were, and how concerned the restaurant management seemed about their business.

Right then and there, they made a decision to help – not just that restaurant, but every restaurant that has ever wanted to save time, money, and see profits grow. Lavu was created with the restaurant owner in mind every step of the way. Our mission is simple: we empower restaurateurs to do more of what they love, with solutions that really work.

You bring the passion and the vision. We bring the best-in-class technology and all the management tools you need. (And rest assured, we bring our share of passion and vision too!)

That very first meal was in 2010. We started with a simple iOS app, but like the restaurants we support, we’ve grown. Today, Lavu powers restaurants all around the globe, offering a comprehensive suite of tools including front of house, back of house, inventory, labor, and so much more.

#1 POS for Restaurants

Sarah Billenstein

Picnic's Pizza & Grille

"Lavu is a robust POS software that keeps me informed about my business performance. Lavu allows me to manage remotely. I can check my business performance from my mobile device. I love this feature. The reporting is great, we track employee time, and the menu module is simple enough that I can manage my own menu. This helps with quick changes."

Candace Kalb

Kalby's Koffee and Hot Doggery

"The integration from our old POS was simple. Being able to add pictures of products or change colors of boxes to help locate the items faster is great. We love the ability to change prices, product names, and add new products with ease. Overall, Lavu is great. The staff is always looking for ways to improve the system."

Gladys McKinney

Willow Creek Winery

"The best part of Lavu is that it is handling the growth of our winery. The reports are awesome! Not only is it handling the growth but it is also implementing new technology so that we can remain flexible in our customer payment options."

Brian Kim

"Excellent POS. Very powerful and helpful for any restaurant."

General Manager

Village Cafe

"Thinking about going back to a life without Lavu seems chaotic and barbarian. You guys have simplified our life at Village Cafe. Our cooks are able to deliver correct items in record time. We have also seen revenue increase from nothing more than being able to charge for add ons (modifiers). Thank you to the Lavu support team for walking me through program modifications. I can easily navigate through our admin site to change our menu and prices on the fly or set up new users when hiring."

Runem Lozano

Tierra Libre

"The UX is simple and easy to teach and understand. The ability to go into the backend to add or edit food items and immediately see the changes on the app is wonderful. It is a great POS for any small/medium restaurant, pair with the kitchen display system, and your service runs smoothly. The ability to take an order on the table and send it directly to the kitchen on the same spot saves time and makes the service run smoothly. It allows us to see how the products behave on the front end with complete reports."

Philip Vurchio

Strada Grill

"Lavu is a great, user-friendly system that allows ease of use for both frond and back-end users. Easy to set up, reps and customer service are always responsive. Great! Easy to train new employees and staff. Easy to get my second and third locations set up without a long onboarding process. Flexible back-end setup to do what is needed to get the job done."
