EATING OUT: Phones Blamed for Longer Wait Times at Restaurant

EATING OUT: Phones Blamed for Longer Wait Times at Restaurant

A restaurant in New York tried to figure out why they were getting more and more complaints about delays in service – and discovered, surprisingly, that mobile phones were to blame.

Market Diner hired an outside company to investigate the increase in complaints.

That company went back to security video from 2004 and compared it to current video.

They found that it took about one hour and 55 minutes for customers to get in and out of the restaurant.

In 2004, that time was one hour and five minutes.

The cause of this increase?

Well, unlike in 2004, customers today spend a lot of time taking pictures of their food and goofing off on their phones before ordering – slowing everything down and making people wait. (Fox News)

You might say Billy grew up in radio. His Dad, "Ol Uncle Gar" introduced him to the business at a very young age. For the past 25 years, he's played on radio stations around the country! When he's not in the studio, he and his wife Melissa love finding great new restaurants to try out and enjoy spending time at home with their family, Grant (17) baby Jack (1) and their two little shih Tzus, Lexi and Dallas. Life is definitely good.
