Jack In The Box Lets You Order Without Actually Talking To Anyone

Jack In The Box Lets You Order Without Actually Talking To Anyone

jitb-kiosk

By Chris Scott Barr

I’m one of those strange people that will generally do their best to avoid dealing with people when I’m shopping. At the grocery store I always use the self-checkout, since it’s usually much faster. Unfortunately most other stores have cashiers to ring up your purchases, the same goes for restaurants. Thankfully Jack In The Box is doing their part to cut out the middle-man.

Seen to the right is an awesome little kiosk that lets you order your food without the need to deal with some teenager that really doesn’t want to be there in the first place. Sure, eventually these might start taking the jobs of a couple workers, but I doubt they’ll ever really do away with the cashiers altogether. It is, however, nice to see more places offering their customers a choice on how to order their food.

    I don't mind talking with people while I am shopping but as picky consumer who likes their double hamburger plain without cheese, I can only imagine that a kisko system would greatly increase the chances that my hamburger will be made correctly the first time around.

    I can forsee the cashier being replaced with a 'food handler' Noodle shops in Japan already have systems like this and you never get your order screwed up, even with the language barrier. Great stuff!

    This is something new to me. I'm used to the normal vending machines that already has packed food, colas and coffee.
    It's just now that I got the picture. A person fills out the order on the screen, pays, and then the crew will cook the food and bring it out. How about if the customer needs some food customization though??
    I'd definitely want to try this one out in the near future. I hope they get to do it at Mcdonald's πŸ™‚
