Shelly Palmer Radio Report – March 12, 2014

If you’ve ever had trouble flagging down a server at a restaurant, you might want to head over to Buffalo Wild Wings. The restaurant chain recently announced that it’s set to put tablets on each of its tables that will let you order food and drinks without having to get a hold of your waiter or waitress. The tablets will also double as entertainment devices, giving you the option to play games, request a channel change on a TV and more. And, when you’re all done, you can even use the tablets to pay your bill! The devices are all 7-inch Samsung Galaxy units, powered by a platform called BEOND. Buffalo Wild Wings isn’t the first chain with an idea like this; similar tablets can already be found in Applebee’s and Chili’s nationwide. Buffalo Wild Wings says about 150 locations already have these tablets installed. The company plans to get them into about 500 restaurants by the end of this year and into every U.S. location by the end of 2015.
