Cashier Stations

Return to Cafeteria

Design Guidance

Overall Strategies

Cashier Stations require energy to power the computer-based transaction software and machines, printers, and credit card readers. Look for integrated solutions that combine functions in one piece of equipment that can be completely powered off when not in use. Select point-of-sale (POS) units that have settings making printed receipts optional, or a setting that allows email of a receipt to a patron. When paper receipts must be used, select recycled paper. Consider the ergonomics for the cafeteria staff when designing the transaction areas, providing a standing-height counter, cushioned flooring, and high seating with a back.

Best Practices

  • Make receipts optional instead of printing automatically. Provide email receipts instead of paper where practical.
  • Provide healthy snacks in the checkout line.
