The article reports that Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia has installed self-service kiosks in its two Einstein Bros. Bagels operations and The Depot coffee shop, which have led to faster service and less congestion. Students order their menu items from a touch-screen and pay with either a credit card or their Emory debit card. The kiosk prints out a receipt and a food service worker calls out the students' names when their food is ready.
