Shake Shack Founder Danny Meyer Introducing Apple Watch to the Hospitality Industry

Daniela Galarza, reporting for Eater:

When Meyer’s 30-year-old Union Square Cafe reopens in Manhattan next month, every floor manager and sommelier will be wearing an Apple Watch. And when a VIP walks through the front door, someone orders a bottle of wine, a new table is seated, a guest waits too long to order her or his drink, or a menu item runs out, every manager will get an alert via the tiny computer attached to their wrist.

It took a few years for the full potential of the iPhone to surface as an app platform. The same is proving true for Apple Watch. This system sounds very clever — and discreet.
