Takeaways:

The Origin of Toast – From the beginnings of Toast there was a culture of scrappiness. When the point of sale system went down at their first go-live party, co-founder Aman Narang and others jumped in to help by writing down orders and credit card numbers by hand. This led to them developing Offline Mode to help restaurants keep running no matter what happens.

Understanding Restaurants – The people who make up Toast (or Toasters as they are called) know the work they do matters. That’s because a big percentage of them have restaurant experience. In order to build tools that will help businesses into the future, you have to understand their daily needs.

The Best Team for the Right Problems – As CEO of Toast, Aman Narang sees his job as making sure he has the best team for the right problems. He knows there is a lot of opportunity to make their products and systems better, which in turn will improve the industry.
