Mobile Charging Stations Again Wed, 01/23/13 1:42 PM (permalink)
The last thread addressed the expectation of charging stations for mobile and portable devices. Wifi accessibility has become an expectation as well. I've only seen businesses make mass charging or at least power strips on extention cords  available during the aftermath of a hurricane here. I haven't been in a St*rbucks or McD's for a while since their last remodeling or any of these newer upper tier, gourmet QSR's that are emphasising quality ingredients and an upscale customer experience.
However, as these expectations and trends continue, they will be expectations in major restaruants and venues that rely on waitstaff and to some degree already are. This leaves a question of the waitstaff's compensation. The longer a patron lingers, the longer the table is idly occupied depriving another party from occupying the table. The impact on tips I would imagine to be considerable over the period of a day if the table can't be turned over.
While this isn't an issue in a self serve enviornment, moving into full service restaurants is obviously going to be a problem balancing new expectations vs rotation of resources and waitstaff's compensation.
