The current customer cafeteria experience might sound a little something like this:

  1. Grabs a just washed wet plastic lunch tray

  2. Slowly slides tray passed a low variety of pre-made meals or a menu filled with limited options, while multiple cafeteria workers wait in anticipation for their order

  3. Waits in a long line to checkout

  4. Cashier rings up the order by using a traditional cash register

  5. Purchases their meal by using cash/coin and then proceeds to wait in a group of people for their lunch selection to be ready

  6. Enjoys their once hot lunch, cold

You get the picture, right? Cafeterias of yesterday, don’t fulfill today’s consumer’s needs. They don’t offer the safe convenience that is needed now, more than ever.
