Pizza restaurant launches Spain's first virtual waiter app

A pizza restaurant in Spain has replaced its waiters with an app to avoid most face-to-face contact between customers and the staff and minimise the risk of coronavirus contagion.

Customers at Funky Pizza can browse the menu, order and pay via the “Funky Pay” app on their phones. A waiter does bring the order to the table.

“Through this system we have tried to keep physical distance with our clients, which is what people are looking for during COVID,” said restaurant owner Carlos Manich Reuters reported.

The restaurant has had to adapt to social distancing rules by becoming table service only and reminding customers on entry they must wear face masks at all times when not at their tables.
