A fast food chain of restaurants selling burgers, chicken and soft drinks is re-thinking how it will operate in the near future. Currently over the counter orders are slow and this is often due to customers making a slow decision on the food/drink they want to order or customers having a last-minute change of mind and having the order changed. Increasing staffing costs and training are also an issue. The decisions made by the executive board are:
a) to reduce the number of over counter orders and this be replaced by ATM-like machines installed on the restaurant premises
b) to also install ATM-like order machines all over town so people could pre-order and pay for their order and then collect their meal at a restaurant of their choice later.
