Ziosk, maker of the ordering, entertainment, and pay-at-the table tablet, and Abuelo's Mexican Restaurants announced their partnership to bring Ziosk tabletop tablets to all 40 of Abuelo's full-service restaurant locations nationwide.
The rollout is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
With the primary purpose of enhancing the guest experience, the Ziosk 7-inch tablet is conveniently displayed on each restaurant table, giving Abuelo's guests the ability to interactively peruse menu items and specials as well as order beverages and desserts whenever the craving strikes.
The Ziosk tablet will also be available in the bar and on select restaurant patio tables, offering Abuelo's full bar and patio menus for convenient ordering. Guests can play interactive games together on the Ziosk tablet, including zTrivia, its proprietary trivia program updated bi-weekly with timely news and events designed to bring family and friends together as they share a meal.
Additionally, guests can interact with friends via social media, pay their checks right at the table whenever they choose, and share real-time feedback on their dining experience.
"We are pleased to share news of our partnership with Abuelo's and to bring the convenience and entertainment that the Ziosk platform offers to their guests across the country," says Austen Mulinder, CEO of Ziosk. "After a successful testing period, we are pleased to move forward with this installation and expect to have our Ziosk tablets on more than 2,300 Abuelo's tables across the country by the end of the year."
"Our new Ziosk tablets complement the colorful, quality dining experience we've created at Abuelo's, by allowing our servers to spend more time in the front of the house interacting with our guests," says Robert Lin, president of Abuelo's Mexican Restaurants. "We are excited to be one of the first restaurant brands to deliver this innovative experience, and to bring Ziosk's pay at the table functionality and robust slate of offerings for loyalty, entertainment, social interaction, and more right to our guests' table."
