Tap into the Future: Chili's Guests Can Soon Pay Check Using Apple Pay

Brand to become first casual dining restaurant company to offer mobile payment through Ziosk tabletop tablets.

DALLAS - Oct. 9, 2015 // PRNewswire // - For Chili's® Grill & Bar guests, paying the check at lunch and dinner is about to get even easier. The brand, which currently offers guests the ability to swipe and pay on demand through Ziosk® tablets which are located on every restaurant table, is planning to integrate mobile payment functionality on its more than 70,000 tablets nationwide starting spring 2016 with all company-owned restaurants.

With a focus on bringing guests the most innovative technology, Chili's plans to launch the functionality with Apple Pay, which is transforming mobile payments with an easy, secure and private way to pay. Once the rollout begins, Chili's will be the first casual dining restaurant brand to offer guests the ability of contactless payment on demand at the table.

"More than seven out of 10 people choose to pay on the Ziosk tablet when dining in a Chili's restaurant," said Krista Gibson, chief marketing officer for Chili's Grill & Bar. "Mobile payment delivers the speed, convenience and security that are clearly important to today's guest, and integrating this technology where it's never been available before will be a big benefit to new school consumers, especially millennials."

Chili's is leading the casual dining industry in restaurant technology adoption and the creation of a digital guest experience. The brand currently has the largest tabletop tablet network in the country and will be at the forefront of mobile payment when Apple Pay is supported on Ziosk.

Once the functionality is available at a participating Chili's restaurant in 2016, guests can use Apple Pay by simply holding their iPhone near the tablet's contactless reader while keeping a finger on Touch ID, or, when using Apple Watch, double-clicking the side button and holding the face up to the reader. A subtle vibration and beep will let the guest know the payment is accepted and verified.

Security and privacy are at the core of Apple Pay. When adding a credit or debit card to Apple Pay, the actual card numbers are not stored on the device, nor on Apple servers. Instead, a unique Device Account Number is assigned, encrypted and securely stored in the Secure Element on your device. Each transaction is authorized with a one-time unique dynamic security code.

The tabletop tablets at Chili's will also accept Android Pay.
