The super-wired restaurant

Look beyond automatic toilets. Go completely touchless in your restrooms with automatic soap dispensers, motion-activated towel machines and hands-free faucets. It’s easy hygiene for your customers and employees. Georgia-Pacific is the largest manufacturer of touchless technology.

Provide a Salemi Industries sound-resistant Cell Zone cell phone booth where cell users can take and make calls without disturbing the other patrons. It’s a modern take on the old phone booth concept.

Keep clean without chemicals. An electrolyzer system from Electrolyzer Corp. uses just water and salt to create a low-cost way to sanitize and disinfect hard surfaces and hands. It also works as a safe way to help extend the shelf life of perishable foods.

No more hard to navigate paper wine lists. Port your list over to a tablet PC and let your customers browse by vintage, type, price and food pairings. The eWinebook got its start at the Aureole restaurant in Las Vegas.

Cook up some cool dishes with the PolyScience anti-griddle. It looks like a normal cooktop, but rapidly freezes purees and sauces at minus 30 degrees for unique culinary creations.

Shave time off the ordering process by equipping servers with wireless handhelds. Servers simply beam the order to the kitchen. Check out the cutting edge wireless mobile MICROS POS solution.

Take the mystery out of prompt customer service with a push-for-service paging device at the table. Patrons alert the staff when they are ready to order. Long Range Systems offers Key Call units with a push-for-service feature.

Cater to the plugged in crowd by offering iPod docks at the table. Customers can listen to their own personal tunes on small speakers while they eat.

Diner database systems keep track of visits by customers. When a VIP diner checks in, the software alerts a manager’s pager. The manager logs into a POS terminal and accesses the customer’s order history and preferences. JTECH is leading development.

Replace your old customer pagers. New pagers come stocked with LCD screens to entertain customers with sports scores, trivia and news—and update them on their wait times. Check out EPD Inc.’s InfoCube pagers.
