The problem with cashless restaurants

Established Contributor

Re: The problem with cashless restaurants

I can certainly see larger businesses or businesses with multiple locations spending more on counting cash than the fees.


But for most establishments that don't take credit cards, they're more likely mom & pop shops where the owner is the cashier or bartender or whatever.


I suspect the true motivation of a business that is "cashless" is more about the studies that show people tend to spend more money when NOT using cash rather than "safety and convencience" of the customer.
