The icing on the cake are the surprise offers and deals discounts if customer hangs out a little longer and wants to consume more. With feedback integrated, customer is assured that his inputs are always reaching the restaurant owners and managers and getting the value they deserve resulting in better dining experiences on repeat visits.
