  Ordering Your Burger At A Kiosk
By srpatterson


Dublin based burger chain Wendy's has discovered that customers like to use kiosks to order their food. After experimenting with kiosks last year, the company plans to have them in place in up to 1,000 restaurants later this year, about ten percent at company owned restaurants.

Customer service is probably one of the biggest players in a customer's perception of a company and whether they grow to hate that company. Nothing can make a customer more hateful than being put on hold for twenty minutes listening to music they also hate. This leads to why cable companies are so well represented in the top most hated companies in America in 2017. These are the companies almost everyone has to call up sometime.
