Restaurants augment customer experience through use of technology

Implications - Technology is quickly changing the food service industry, first with on-the-go ordering apps and restaurant locators, and now, through the use of interactive technologies that augment the in-store dining experience. From touchscreen tabletop menus to interactive music applications, these innovations not only make the process of food service more efficient and convenient, but they also enhance customer experience by providing a more engaging and interactive way to enjoy one's favorite restaurants.
