Daniel, Ronnie & myself had a fantastic week in Chicago at the NRA show. We were interviewed by Elysabeth Alfano and enjoyed an impromtu mini tour of a few pubs with her too.
However, the most ingenious offering in this aisle was brought forward by three Scots who make up the burgeoning company, Qikserve. Qikserve allows the customer to scan a QR code, which can be as simply or elegantly designed as the restaurant chooses, on the dining table on to their phone. This immediately brings up the menu (no more printing and wasting of menus) and allows you to order anything, including hold the mayo, on the phone. It also alerts the wait staff and kitchen that your order has been placed. You can re-order as you go and pay when you want, saving time and headaches. While there are other companies out there that offer paperless menus, they require installing an electronic pad to the restaurant table, which seems bulky, complicated and expensive, when you might as well just use your phone. How we order in restaurants is changing for the better and this was certainly a thrill for me.
