Ziosk lures Samsung Pay users to fast casual chains with food discounts
Ziosk, maker of the world's first ordering, entertainment and pay-at-the table tablet, announced that it is teaming with Samsung Pay to make it easier to pay the bill at leading casual dining restaurants.
As part of the announcement, Samsung Pay is offering guests at participating Red Robin Gourmet Burgers and Brews, Friendly's and Uno Pizzeria & Grill an opportunity to save $5 off their bill of $10 or more when they use Samsung Pay on the Ziosk tablet. The special limited-time savings incentive will be automatically applied to guests' bills at time of payment.
Once Samsung Pay is active on the user's device, customers simply swipe up on their mobile device to launch Samsung Pay, authorize the transaction with their fingerprint or PIN, and then hover the device over the Ziosk card reader to pay.
"Consumers want an easy-to-use and secure mobile payment solution, and by teaming up with Ziosk, Samsung Pay is providing an even faster, easier and more secure experience to pay the bill while dining out," said Nana Murugesan, vice president and general manager of services and new business for Samsung Electronics America. "Ziosk's industry-leading technology, paired with Samsung Pay, provides restaurant guests a more seamless, integrated, flexible, and secure option for using mobile payment on demand."
Ziosk tablets are currently in 3,000 restaurants across all 50 states. By the year's end Ziosk will have fully deployed its newest contracts, totaling 170,000 new Ziosk tablets interacting with more than 50 million guests per month, according to the announcement.
"Ziosk is disrupting the restaurant industry by offering guests more secure, innovative and faster ways to pay at-the-table," said Austen Mulinder, CEO of Ziosk. "Partnering with Samsung Pay is a strategic move that enables our restaurant partners to take advantage of a flexible, cost-effective and existing payment platform and provides their guests with more efficient mobile payment options."
