Thanks to a handy new Chili's waitlisting app, you won't have to wait in line for a table for much longer. This technological investment by Chili's Grill & Bar is sure to mark the beginning of a whole new dining experience across the industry thanks to the Internet of Things. Consumers will be able to get in line remotely in order to completely avoid a wait upon arrival.
To launch in summer 2015, the Chili's waitlisting app will be powered by NoWait, a mobile network for casual dining restaurants. Available for iOS and Android, the NoWait mobile app technology is an extension of a preexisting NoWait host app, already used in restaurants across the US.
This new technology is an intriguing attempt on the part of a major restaurant chain attempting to take control of the customer experience even before they have stepped in the door.
