'Bite' is a self-serving facial recognition kiosk that's contributing that's to an enhanced customer experience at casual fast food restaurant chains.

Guests of McDonald's, Subway or Panera are no stranger to self-serving kiosks -- a device that heightens ordering efficiency by taking customer orders in lieu of a cashier. In addition to the proven line reduction, these kiosks help boost customer morale as the line-limiting element offer the consumer more time to browse through the menu, increasing their chances of customizing a meal or selecting additional items.

Bite, takes the advantages of a kiosk one step further by implementing facial recognition. Using guest recognition and learning algorithms these kiosks can store customer information for returning customers, and suggest daily specials or 'staff favorites' to help limit the overwhelming choice for first time visitors.
