Restaurant Scheduling App

Building out your restaurant’s schedule is often quite an undertaking. Everyone has restrictions, preferences, and last-minute changes that pop up. Thankfully, ZoomShift empowers you to build out a schedule in minutes, not hours. When changes do occur, you can easily drag‑and‑drop shifts around in the app, and your team can swap shifts on their own. No more acting as middle-man, calling down lists, or endless approval chains.

The best part? Everyone communicates through the app, and ZoomShift will notify people when their shift’s about to start, when the schedule’s published, and when shift cover requests go out. That means less time worrying about the schedule and more time doing what you do best.

Restaurant Scheduling Templates

The restaurant industry is notorious for staffing issues. Restaurant owners and managers alike spend far too much time updating spreadsheets to build out a schedule that works for everyone.

ZoomShift takes the legwork out of employee scheduling by letting you easily copy shifts from day-to-day or even week-to-week. ZoomShift also allows for unlimited templates, which means you can create a template for every shift, location, and season.

Labor Forecast Tool

Labor forecasting is all about maximizing your restaurant’s staffing efficiency so you can save money. Thursday lunch a bit slower? Check the dashboard to see how many people you can afford on each shift. Feel a bit short-staffed on busy Friday evenings? No sweat.

ZoomShift gives you a real-time view of your costs so you can instantly make changes to accommodate a heavy night. With ZoomShift, you can stop guessing and start precisely comparing your labor costs with average revenue for each day of the week to make more informed decisions.

We love ZoomShift – it's super easy. With the app, our staff always knows when they work.

Frequently Asked Questions

At its core, scheduling software like ZoomShift keeps your staff on the same page with its feature-rich web and mobile app. The schedule is online and easily viewed 24/7 by both your team and managers. It also makes it easy to communicate when shift cover requests go out or the schedule gets published since ZoomShift has text, email, and push notifications. That means fewer no shows and less back-and-forth email and text chains to cover shifts.
The simplicity of ZoomShift is why people love it so much. Managers enter all employees into the app alongside pertinent info like their job title and wages. Once all your employees are entered into ZoomShift, you can begin shift planning by clicking Schedule in the navigation bar and slotting your employees for the shifts you need covered. Rinse and repeat as necessary and copy schedules daily, weekly, or even monthly to save time.

Prices vary based on which package you select and how many active employees are using the software each month. Check out our Starter, Premium, and Enterprise solutions to see what fits your needs the best.
