Fwd: Food orders

Fans of Chick-fil-A can now get their food quicker, with the help of an updated app that allows customers to pay using their smartphones and order their food ahead of time.

"Customers really love using their mobile devices," said Khalilah Cooper, leader of ordering strategy at Chick-fil-A. "And we really want to give our guests the opportunity to order what they want, when they want, and how they want."

While the chain launched their current app, free to download from iTunes or Google Play, last year, the mobile payment feature wasn't added until Monday.

The new function allows users nationwide to use their phones to purchase their meal just by scanning their phones at the register, thus avoiding the hassle of having to fumble for cash or cards.'

I think that scanning a phone is hardly different than swiping a card.  In fact, if I have to load the app, it is more difficult.

​In fact, we are coming up with clever ways to avoid human interaction.​
