Apps to Eat and Run
March 6, 2014
Hosted by Brett King
So imagine you are going out to eat with your friends or family. You are sitting at the table, the food is eaten and all you want to do is get the waiters' attention to pay the check and go. As you wait, your friends have to leave to catch the baby sitter, or your three year old is getting fussy, or the girl you just offered to walk home has to leave without you. Or imagine you walk into a grocery store to pick up a carton of milk, but the lines are outrageously long? Wouldn't it be nice if you could just pay through your smartphone and leave? Today, we are talking about the mobile payments in the food service industry and innovations to make the entire process of payments become a frictionless experience. Brett hosts Alex Broeker, CEO of Tabbed Out and Guillaume Lebleu, innovator of Credibles, the new Whole Foods app to discuss the innovations in mobile payments for their industry and what other institutions can learn from it.
