In less than eight months, Chili’s working with Ziosk, makers of the world’s first ordering, entertainment and pay-at-the table tablet, has completed the largest roll-out of tabletop tablets in the U.S., installing more than 45,000 Ziosk tablets in 823 company-owned Chili’s restaurants.
Now computers are intimately involved with our complete eating out experience, at least at Chili’s, where Ziosk 7″ Android tablets have been installed on every Chili’s restaurant table. Chili’s says the tablets lead customers to purchase more appetizers and desserts, and help generate higher tips. The bottom-line is that when your server is a screen, you spend more money.
Austen Mulinder, CEO of Ziosk says, “We are focused next on installing Ziosk in the remaining franchise-owned Chili’s. By this fall, guests at nearly every Chili’s in the country can place orders, play games and pay their checks from our tabletop tablets.”
Ziosk has 95 percent of the market of table-top tablets and estimated that 80 percent of guests in restaurants with Ziosk tablets use them. This averages about 20 million guests a month. They claim to be the industry leader for tabletop menu, ordering, entertainment and payment with the largest deployed network in the U.S.
