Are you willing to pay for your restaurant reservation? The LA Times reported about a new trend in the restaurant business of apps that charge fees for reservations at restaurants. http://www.latimes.com/food/la-fo-future-food-dining-out-20150117-story.html
I can understand why this has started. Too often people contact restaurants and make a reservation, only to not show up. This “fee-based” app approach will make people be more thoughtful about their dining selections and planning.
The question is do we really need another app for this, or could this transaction actually be handled through a reservation mobile system like Open Table? It would seem that would be more efficient. Also, the question is how much, and would there be a fee for all restaurants or only the better restaurants?
I would like to hear from you on this one.
