Branch + PDQ: Instant, Digital Tips & Mileage for Restaurant Franchises

We’re thrilled to give a warm Branch welcome to our newest EPP Network partner, Signature Systems’ PDQ Point-of-Sale system. Beginning in March, PDQ will integrate directly with the Branch Employer Payments Platform, making Branch’s full suite of features available to all PDQ customers at no cost. Branch will primarily work with restaurants using PDQ to provide their employees with instant, digital access to tips, mileage, and wages after each shift.

PDQ x Branch

PDQ will primarily leverage the tips and reimbursements module of the Branch EPP, allowing its customers to instantly pay their employees tips, mileage, and wages after each shift—without relying on cash. This process is automated, so there’s no additional hassle for restaurants or changes to their payroll systems needed.

Many businesses across the country were already seeing a steady decline in cash transactions prior to COVID-19, but the pandemic accelerated the transition to digital-only payments. This forced many restaurants, who rely heavily on tips, to make trips between the bank and their various locations—wasting time and increasing risk of cash theft. With Branch, restaurants don't have to worry about cash logistics or getting change from the bank; they simply tip out their employees digitally after each shift with our fast and easy technology.

“PDQ is constantly looking for ways to add value for its customers—and Branch was a perfect fit,” said John White, EVP/CTO. “Through our integration, we can now solve a problem restaurants all across the nation are facing: tipping and reimbursing employees quickly, safely, and conveniently without the inherent issues that accompany payouts by cash.”
