This Could Put Waiters And Waitresses On The Unemployment Line


Please don’t pass this blog post onto any family members or friends that wait tables for a living. You’ll only succeed  in depressing them.

Big time.

As a mater of fact, if you do  pass this blog post onto the waiters and waitresses in your life, they’ll probably decide to never wait on you again.

Please don’t do it.


The Scenario

It’s Friday night, and your kid is back from college for winter break.

She likes-and misses, Panera Bread. The girl needs some soup and a muffin. Heck, she’ll eat anything Panera serves after 4 months of college, and the bland food served on campus. So, you run up there, grab a table, and start looking at the menu.

What menu?

The one that’s on the table?

No. There isn’t one at the table. There are no glossy, tri-fold menus on your table. As you look around, you notice that there are no menus on any  of the tables at your local Panera Bread franchise.


So, you order your food how?

Oh, wait. Your tech-savvy 19 year old spots something.

The “something” she spots is a Tabletop tablet.

On it, a little sign that says, “Order here.”



Waiters And Waitresses In A Box?

You’ve heard of these 5 companies, I’m sure:

  • Ziosk
  • Tabbedout
  • E la Carte
  • iMenu
  • MenuPad
  • E la Carte

If you haven’t-which means like me-you’re really out of the loop when it comes to some of the current technology trends affecting food franchises, they are the companies that are at the forefront of Tabletop tablet manufacturing.

And, these 5 companies may send waiters and waitresses to the unemployment line-and soon.

I’m so happy that the technology that’s around now, wasn’t-when I was a waiter.


A Short Franchise Video

I put together a short video on the topic of Tabletop tablets, and how they could affect waiters and waitresses.

Thank you, Franchise Direct, for making the information on Tabletop tablets and franchising available to the masses via your blog.

Will this new technology put a lot of waiters and waitresses on the unemployment line?
