Don't wait in line: use SMS!

Now restaurants can let their most valued customers skip the line. Mobo provides priority access by allowing customers to order and pay for meals using SMS. So how does it work?

...Customers create an account, which includes their credit card details. After signing up for the service, they can order online... or by text message/sms. The order appears on the restaurant's in-store Mobo system, and is automatically billed to the customer's credit card. The restaurant confirms the order, and the customer receives a text message stating when the order will be ready for pick up.

Every Mobo restaurant has a separate Mobo Pick Up counter, so when their order is ready, Mobo users can walk straight to the counter, state their name and last four digits of their phone number, and pick up their food. For those customers that can't leave the office, Mobo also delivers...

If the service makes it any easier, expect to get a bib tied around your neck and spoon-fed when you show up.
