FAST FOOD

PIFW's processing partner, Nationwide Payment Solutions, has designed special services to meet the unique business needs of the fast food industry. Fast-food restaurants, historically reluctant to accept credit cards, are now rushing to start accepting credit cards. These business are accelerating from the “last to go” to the cutting edge in terms of payment technology. Applications range from traditional credit-card readers to wireless technology that offers greater flexibility in certain locations.

Fast-food operators also have been persuaded to accept credit cards by consumer pressure. "Consumer spending habits have changed so much over the past three to five years," says Lynne Bever, a director with Fort Lauderdale, Fla.-based Arby’s, a division of Triarc Restaurant Group. “Today, consumers expect to be able to use credit cards wherever they shop and are likely to take their business elsewhere when they can't.”
