Up until about 2016, cash has always been king. But now it looks like the king may be ready to retire his crown. Over the past couple of years, the trend of restaurants going cash-free, has been gaining speed. It has been a slow revolution that started with smaller business, in places like New York and San Francisco. But now, early adopters like Sweetgreen, Eatsa and now Tender Greens. This has now gained the attention of large restaurants and chains like Argo Tea, Union Square Hospitality Group, Firehouse Subs and most notably, Starbucks. So what is driving this trend? Analytics. As more and more chains are trying to boost speed of service and throughput, the casualty in all this is cash.
