Restaurant receipt technology has been the same for a long, long time. And when you are out with friends it’s always the same drill when you divide the bill – you either figure out what everyone ordered and how much they owe or you simply divide the total bill by the number of people in the party.
There are over 200,000 restaurants in the United States and people have been eating out for dinner since restaurants first emerged in the 18th century. At some point in the 20th century, cash registers and receipts became the normal way of tallying bills for dinner.
But it wasn’t until now that the clever receipt technology has emerged that addresses the persistent need to divvy up the bill. Enter Legal Seafood, the first and only place I’ve seen that has made the innovation.
See the photo of one of their receipts and note that each guest’s complete meal is conveniently subtotaled. Also note that the grand total is also divided by the total number in the party should you just want to split the bill evenly.
What a great and simple way to add value to your customers’ dining experience. A nice upgrade to an old technology.
