I recently visited a popular restaurant in the Twin Cities, the ambiance was great,
the food was excellent, and the staff was very nice. However, my overall dining
experience was ruined when it came to paying for my meal. It took what seemed like
an eternity for me to close out my tab.
I could see it was a busy day, so I grudgingly waited, eventually the wait staff
made her way towards me, I got her attention and requested for the check, a while
later she showed up with the check, I looked down to get my wallet, and she was
gone, she came back not too long later to collect my credit card, then the waiting
game began again. I eventually got my credit card back with the payment slip, signed
it and swore never to return to the restaurant again.
This experience got me thinking, there has got to be another way. I related my experience
to a group of friends and they had also had the same experience at other restaurants
as well, and were also looking for a solution.
Anyway, we thought to ourselves, how about we create a solution that allows us to
park an order on our mobile devices, show up at the restaurant, enjoy the dining
experience without the hassle of waiting to pay, because we have the option to make
a payment on our mobile device.
A little while later, Waitless – A food ordering and payment app was born.
Waitless allows you to browse your favorite restaurant’s menu from your home or
office, create and park an order for the date and time you want to show up at the
restaurant, and make a payment by clicking on a payment button to settle your check
instantly and securely while you are at the restaurant, all on your mobile device.
Simply put, Waitless saves time by making the dining process more efficient without
taking away from the actual dining experience.
Waitless also allows you to view participating restaurant promotions, your pending
reservations, order history, set a dinning budget and much more.
Waitless is now available for use at Sawatdee Thai Restaurant, Eden Prairie, MN.
Coming soon to a restaurant or bar near you.
