Description

“The hassle involved with queuing is a key disincentive to drinking out of home, as 68% of adults who drink out of home agree that queuing is the most frustrating thing about drinking in pubs and bars. This could be remedied by introducing more table-service zones and faster payment methods to speed up service.”

– Alex Beckett, Senior Food Analyst
